On tap at a Thai restaurant. Amber-red with a pinkish hue. Robust citrus in the nose (grapefruit, blood oranges), hints of red fruits and spicy hops. Tangy-hop taste and sweet, pale malt undertones paired well with the fiery food. Mouthfeel was smooth and slightly resinous, with balanced carbonation and a draw out citrus hop finish. I wish more Thai restaurants had beer like this on tap instead of the donkey-piss domestic and foreign lagers that pair poorly with the food.

Had this at the Seattle Airport on my way back from Japan. Maybe it was just the fact that I hadnít tasted hops in about two years but I really think this beer was a very good example of the style. Excellent nose with a touch of caramel sweetness yet refreshing and tangy citrus notes. Taste is a smooth mix of pine sap, toffee flavors, and grapefruit. VERY sessionable beer. Liked it alot, something I would love to mimic one day as a homebrew recipie for a session beer.

Out of a growler from the brewery. Great session APA. Aroma has citrus and hops. Bronze color . Great taste, not overwhelming bitterness. No wonder this is one of the most popular taps in Seattle.

Pours a warm golden, sometimes a little hazy. Light Cascade/Citrus hops are followed by a slightly grainy aroma. If anything, this is a well-balanced and not overly-assertive pale ale. Finishes fairly dry and is very sessionable. Seems like this could be a superior example of an American Pale Ale if there was a bit more finishing hops and a touch more malt, Iíve had this beer several times and once in a while I can detect a fair amount of diacetyl. Good overall.

Draft at the Sheraton (Seattle, WA). Pours a rich amber color with a beige head. Nice hoppiness in the aroma. Good flavor with a balance of malt and hops.

On tap at the Knitting Factory. Tastes nutty--weird for a pale. Tastes a little watered down towards the end. Deep copper/amberish color. Interesting take on the American pale ale.

Poured a cloudy amber. Aroma was interesting with sweet cream and citrus. Flavor was not as hoppy as I would have thought for a pale ale. Fairly bland but there is a slight minty pine hops aftertaste. Overall, I expected it to be a bit more aggressive. I thought it was a bit boring.

Wicked Good Beer. Smooth hoppy taste. A good session APA. Not too dramatic with the hops but you know you are drinking an IPA/APA. Good hop flavor. On tap at the Crimson C.

Tap... Poured amber with a white head, nice lacing. Hoppy sweet aroma. Big bread like grains and hop bitterness. Sweet caramel and creamy finish.
