COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A careful selection of Northwest hops, premium barley, and our unique yeast give this ale a rich and complex malty middle with a snappy hop finish. Crisp, clean and smooth with hints of citrus and fruit.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2003 Orange-amber colored with a clean hop aroma showing some complexity. The flavor was clean as well and rather sweet. A good pale ale--though it borders on IPA grounds.

Draft at Bishop’s Ale House. (Which should probably be renamed to Bishop’s Lager House due to the profusion of macro lagers here.) Pours a hazy amber, with a scant but lacy white head that paints concentric circles inside my pint. Mildly piney nose. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Just a hint of initial sweetness in the taste along with some grass and nutty tones, leading to a crisp pine finish. Sessionable.

Had this at the Seattle Airport on my way back from Japan. Maybe it was just the fact that I hadn’t 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.

on draft at the courtyard marriott in downtown seattle. slightly hazy gold, with a whitish head that sticks a bit to the glass. aroma is mildly hoppy to fit the classic american pale profile. green grassy citrusy (grapefruit) cascades, but a little fruitier and estery than the typically clean and neutral west coast yeast. medium body and nice balance; the APA style well-executed. very enjoyable.

On tap at PF Changs in Seattle. Colour...golden-orange with a thick head. Nose... Lightly hoppy with some mash aroma. Palate... Nicely balanced between malt and hop with dry earth, a slightly bitter tang on the back palate and a burst of spent grain.

Tap. Pours an opaque golden amber with lingering off-white head. Pretty good, I usually order this if it’s available and nothing else looks interesting.

On tap at Roo’s in Long Beach, WA - Orangish yellow with a pillowy white head. Not overwhelming with the hops. Somewhat of a sweet aftertaste. Add some more hops, and this would be a very good IPA.

On tap at the brewery. Apparently this is the most popular of the Georgetown offerings. (note of trivia - Georgetown brewery is the second largest tap-only brewery in the U.S.) From the ratings, it appears that the recipe varies here and there. The version that I tried was nicely put-together, but very straightforward and not a lot of hops. It had a nice body to it, and drank very easily. I’m just disappointed with the lack of complexity to the aromas/flavors.
