KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2006
On tap at Ivar’s, Pier 54, Seattle

Had first day in Seattle with my girlfriend, her father, and her sister while waiting for the Bainbridge Island ferry. Pours lush amber with a nice head. Aroma is very hoppy for an APA, with nice streams of flora and grapfruit. Very close to an IPA, with a definite grapefruit presence accentuated by the hops but nicely rounded out by a malty sweetness. Velvety palate. Great beer; beautiful view from my seat.

On tap at the Inter Bay golf course. Pours a near clear amber with a near white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has resin and pine with a strong sweet grain and toffee backbone. Flavor is similar with caramel and sweet grains up front with a grass and resin backbone.

arbine (8) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 25, 2015 does not count
Hoppy aroma, enjoyable. American beer and froth... Sad. But the color is a nice dark golden. Taste is little flat, but overall not too sweet and not too bitter. Aftertaste is a little on the bitter and malty side, but just within limits to still be tasty. Overall a very solid and fine pale ale.
