11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Tap at brewery. Orange to medium amber in color. Scant white head forms and quickly fades to a ring leaving no lacing. Aroma is full of floral and citrus hop scents. Pleasingly bitter up front with citric hop bitterness that fades to a malty finish. Medium bodied. Quite nice. Bordering on an IPA. I thought the brewery described this as an ESB??? Regardless, this is a beer I could drink repeatedly and be quite happy.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 1, 2005
Flowery and slightly perfumy nose, a good bit of malt and straw, too; nice balance tilted towards smooth bitterness with fruity, light medicinal notes and grapefruit, rose pedal, and spruce poking through; some lingering bitterness; a pale on the verge of being an IPA.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2005
This Pale is incredibly full-flavored with a very dry character in the hops and a big full body to boot. Less citrusy than grassy, the hops here are perfectly selected to balance the flavor in the pale malt without the high IBUs of many IPAs. Great beer, lots of flavor and not a lot of bite.

shadey (1879) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 28, 2005
On Tap at the Dog and Pony in Seattle. Hazy golden color. Full aroma with hop and alcohol. Flavor is resiny hops. Ok stuff.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 17, 2005
Thanks to SNOB for the bottle. Transparent yellow gold color. Citrusy Cascade-type aroma, some malt undertones. Slightly sweet nose, followed by the dominant flavor character of citrusy, slightly pine resinous Cascade hops. Malty flavors come through more as it warms. Residual sweetness with a tinge of bitterness in the finish.

mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - MAY 14, 2005
22oz, brewers reserve 2004, bought at a discount...so it isnít the freshest...huge foaming head, tough to control...lots of carbonation and thick lace, slightly hazy beer. It doesnít seem right to me, the aroma is medicinal, phenolic, and hoppy...maybe that comment down the screen about cilantro is right...just odd...after that, nothing much happens with the beer...there just isnít much flavor to it, save from something medicinal hops, bitterness doesnít even stand out, nothing really does. thatís too bad.

HoppedHead (106) - seattle, Washington, USA - APR 21, 2005
pours nicely w/ decent head, deep golden in color, citrusy slightly herbal aroma, light mouthfell, slight maltiness as the beer warms, flavor dominated by cacade hops, citrus, somewhat dry lingering finish. overall enjoyable...

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2004
í04 bottle. Cloudy amber liquid, voluminous white head. Herbal sroma: cilantro, corn stalk sweetness, and light grapefruit. Hardly any malt sweetness in the aroma. The flavor is all relatively weak hops with some weak pale malt thrown in. Couldnít understand what this beer was trying to do. Light and uninteresting.

MIBRomeo (2541) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Ap: extremely bubbly on open and pourÖ very thick foamy white head that disapted very slowly w/ lacing down the glass sides. Poured a light golden color a little cloudy Ar: grapefruit and northwestern hops very crisp a touch of grass in the scent Pa: good carbonation a bit dry on the tongue nice full body Flvr: a bit dry heavy bitter hoppy flavor no malts fairly simple Ovrl: a very fresh clean taste, great smell, but the taste was defintally lacking, nothing except hops and not really a powerful hops, I think Iíve had farts more complex than this beer. thanks to Dave.

1FastSTi (3334) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Had a nice full lacy head. Nice copper/gold color. Bubbled like champagne. A bit cloudy. Smelled like strong grapefruit with nothing else. Palate... eh. Flavor was of grassy and grapefruit hops. This beer rates high, but I donít understand why. It was too plain and boring.
