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

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

Stove Top (43) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2001
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

Terrific ale, boasting the fine balance of the regular pale with the addition of courser, more in-your-face hops. I wouldn’t say its better than the normal pale, just different. Full Sail has to be one of the best breweries in America.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2003 Full Sail has been a favorite brewery, since they brewed their first beers in the late eighties, and still remains so today and I always keep a sixer or two around when I’m in the mood for a mild and pleasing to the palate beer.

The color as it sets in the glass a limpid amber with an impressive bright white head that is creamy in texture, the lace a film like veil to shade the glass. A hint of hop floral spiciness greets you first, followed by a sweet malt freshness that I find quite appealing, start is sweet and malt laden with a middling top. Finish is prickly in its acidic bite, the hops gentle and pleasing to the palate, and a dry linger aftertaste tops it off, just a damn fine drinking beer.
