Great sessionable drink. Smooth, finish with hints of the caramel coming through. Hops that were added were floral with hints of citrus. Not a mind blowing pale, but is going to be revisited often with this limited release.

Bottle - Nice lemon grass and citrus aroma. Clear pale orange with an awesome thick head that looks like it will last forever. Lots of grass and lemon, much like I expected from this style. A mild bitterness that fades nicely. This is very comparable to Deschutes Chasing Freshies but much better in my opinion. Great mouth feel as well.

Bottle pours a hazy deep golden with a thin white head. Scent is citrus and bread. Taste is biscuits and a touch of lemon. Will try again when fresh in September.

Sample at the brewery. The bartender said they had found a few extra kegs and put it back on in February. Still had very fresh tasting hops. A very nice pale ale. Amber. Nice head.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bomber pours clear deep gold with semi loose off white head. The modest aroma has some spicy hops, earthy to slightly dank hops as well as a bit of citrus like lemon to lime notes. The taste is similar with some spicy to earthy to dank like hoppiness that have both bittering hop and hop flavor going for them. Around those notes are lesser amounts of floral hops, some malt graininess, stale sort of organic malts and a yeastiness that seems to pull this apart rather than add to the experience. Regardless this is a decent product.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle from a local, Kallispell, supermarket. This has a hazy gold apperance. Thereís nothing special to look at here. This has a light pine hop aroma. Itís a little underwhelming in the aroma department. This has a very light sweet malt aroma. The flavor consists of a light bitter pine flavor, at first, but then the, somewhat, off-putting malt and yeast flavor kick in. My initial impression was that itís pretty good for an APA, but now Iím beginning to think that this was a bit misleading on just how hoppy the beer is. Decent flavor, and the texture isnít bad. Also, it was $3.20, so Iím not going to complain.

The brew arrives in my nonic pint glass a slightly hazy orange color. A fluffy white head sites on top of the liquid and leaves a small amount of lacing on the glass as it disappears.
The nose has a definite citrus aroma to it, mainly oranges. Some slight hop scents are rounded out with a biscuit like smell.
The taste again was very citrus in nature with plenty of malts to balance things out. I must say Iím a bit surprised by how much in the background the hops are.

Bottle, purchased @ the brewery, only available in bomber bottles sold in-house. Bright lemony yellow, hazy, with a lively foamy head that displays excellent retention. Looks great, but the nose is pretty disappointing: sweaty grains with just hints of citrus and grass. Lighter mouthfeel, but with nice citrus hop flavours, slightly perfumey, bringing to mind lemongrass and fresh clementines. Decent, but falls short of being great simply for a lack of impact. Double the malt, double the hops, and then we may have something special-- who cares if you only put out half the quantity?
