COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This delightful brew is a medium-bodied pale ale that is balanced to perfection. It has a fresh hop aroma and a mild sweetness that finishes crisp and clean. This pale ale is brewed in the American style using two Northwest hop varieties, Centennial and Columbus. The fresh hop flavor is balanced with 2-row Pale and Crystal malts

Pours hazy yellow, with off-white head. Much lighter than a straight IPA. Crisp and fresh, not syrupy or cloying like modern IPAs can be. Hops come through without strong bitterness. Tropical fruit--mango and grapefruit. Light pine. Makes for a satisfying session beer -- which makes it somewhat unique in this genre. Frat beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. This is a pretty basic pale ale that with not a whole lot under the hood.

On tap at capitol beer Sacramento. Color is light copper with white head. Taste was bitter with some pine and fruit.

Drjohnrock (428) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 12, 2013
12 ounce bottle from mix and match six pack purchased at Finneytown Kroger, tasted on September 1, 2012. Medium amber hue, small lightly off white head, aroma like a pale lager, somewhat watery, light bittersweet taste. I don’t expect the hop presence of an IPA from an APA but it needs to be stronger than this. This beer would be an OK hot weather quaffer but you could get any number of beers to do the same job at a lower price than this stuff goes for. Below average for style

Very nice. Crisp. Classic. Hoppy enough to make it interesting. Unpretentious. No need to over-analyze. A no-nonsense beer.

This is OK but not overly impressive. I felt the same way about their IPA. Pours from the bottle with a thick white head, which was promising, though aroma was mild and somewhat malty. Flavor is decent, with some hoppiness. Somewhat prickly mouth feel.

maxwelldeux (3459) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle. I was a little surprised, since the nose on this actually reminded me of a lager, not a pale ale. I find this a bit skunky and way too malty for the style. Poured a dark gold with a fairly small head, and that’s about the best I can say about this.

Delicious pale ale. One of the best regular offerings from one of the most solid breweries out there. Sweet and rich. Full bodied and a bit tart. Excellent.

Faint citrus nose and a yellow pour. Taste is a little hoppy with a sweeter malt backbone. Clean finish.

ttoadee (610) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Very thin copper color, small off-white head. Aroma is malt, light hops and creme soda. Medium sweet in the middle. The finish finds those hiding hops to finish slightly dry. Decent beer
