Draught @ Fremont Brewing, Seattle, WA
Pours clear yellowish orange with a small head. Aroma of citrus, orange peel, zesty fruits and earthy notes. Taste is crisp, zesty and lemony with some grainy maltiness and earthy notes. Finish is malty and earthy with some grassy notes. Okay.

Bottle -thanks Artem! Pours clear amber with a large creamy off white head that dissipates with great lacing. Aroma is pine, spruce, citrus, mango. Flavors the same, very light sweet, light bitter. Bitter in the finish, a touch metallic. Light body, bit watery.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose reminded me quite a bit of a nice IPA - somewhat hoppy with some floral and citrus elements coming through. Taste is slightly bitter, yet very crisp and smooth. I really like it.

Draft at GABBF: Poured a hazy yellowed with white head. Aroma is nice crisp hops that follow into the flavor. Also nice balance with the malts to make a very nice drinking pale ale.

Poured from 22oz bottle at home. Orange and clear. Good fruity taste, mild hops, orange and vanilla notes. Like this, especially for being a pale ale

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, served through randall with mosaic hops. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick creamy white head. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus, hop oils. Flavor of hop oils, fresh bitter grassy hops, garlicky hops, crackery malt, more hop oils in the finish. This is a hop bomb for sure, although the underlying malt base could be stronger.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2014 Nice golden hue and nice lace. Nutty nose. Full of flavor yet easy to drink. Subtle sweetness with hints of bread. Hops are floral and mildly bitter. Really good pale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2010 Bronze with crisp head. Honeyed floral grapefruit aroma. Body has a solid malt quality, with some honey malt flavor and barely discernable graininess. A bit of wet shoe intermingles with reserved grapefruit. Pretty reserved bitterness. Re-rated 3-20-10: Rather non-descript hoppiness. Grainy and mildly hopped.
