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

I’d heard great things about this brewery and my first impressions were very appealing. Bright golden amber look with striking clarity, very much in the mould of the trend towards EXTRA pale ales. Strong caramel almost toffeish notes hide behind a fragrant hoppy nose with a nose tingling peppery spice. Pretty lifht on the palate and less carboantion than I expected, the tatse starts out well with a slightly toasted caramel malt. Howver the flavor turned a little sour mid-palate, and although the beer abides by the brewers promise of ’a crisp dry finish’ it’s not particularly bitter while a honey lemon aftertaste just comes through a little too sweet and sticky. A decent beer for sure, but not the top rate brew I was expecting.

I like Pale beer, but I think FullSail’s Amber, ESB and IPA are better, but for this beer isn’t bad.

piney aroma. pale orange with a bubbly head disapearing quickly. Nicely balanced, easy to drink. very mild hop flavor with a pleasant finish. Overall a delicous beer without much complexity or stand out taste. Very drinkable

A real treat, a little more bitter than most pales, but still a great beer.

At first sniff, it has a good sharp smell to it and the beer itself is bitter, even for a pale ale.

Great presentation -- a dense snow white mousse over a bright gold. Light fruit and pine/herbal nose, yes reminescent of grapefruit. Acidic and sharp on the tongue that complements the citric element. What’s unique about this one is that you get alot of hop goodness at the *start* of the taste with a dry, clean and easy finish.

Golden in color. Light honey, strong lavander nose. Lavander and pine palate. Flavor reminds me of flowers of PNW forests? A fair, light rendition of a lavendar pale.

Very nice taste. I really enjoyed this one not too hoppy but yet bitter enough to balance the malt. good

Very well made Pale ale - Lots of up-front fruity hop nose. Good malt and bitter balnace. Just a good all-round Pale-Ale - very indicative of the PNW pale ale style
