harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUL 26, 2003
A good session IPA. Very easy to drink, crisp clean and smooth with a nice mellow sweetness in the aftertaste, and just hoopy enough to be tasty.

Bottle. A dark golden color with an off-white head. The nose is fruity and hoppy. It's smooth on the palate and easy to drink with a touch of malt at the finish.

Verne (263) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2003 Floral notes with citrus. Typical of Cascade hops and its northwest cousins. Prefect malt balance clean flavor some may miss the yeasty flavors that many other pale ales have but this is a favorite of mine

Fruity malt nose. The Hales signature fruity yeast make itself known in the flavor. Medium hop ending.

jpfrog (130) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 29, 2002
A slightly fruity and hoppy smell. Nice pale copper color. The flavor however, was not hoppy enough for me for a pale ale. However the beer was solid and well made. It was balanced and "hit the spot." Another quality beer by Hales.

When I was a younger man, I worked as a new construction plumber in Seattle. If anyone has worked construction during a Seattle winter, you know what it is like. Constantly being wet and muddy, working in the rain and standing/laying in flooded basements to do your work. But every Friday we would go to a restaurant (I forget the name), it was one of those yuppie places that has a lot of beers and if you drink all of them you get on a plaque and get a shirt etc. Which I don’t put down, but I know how others feel about these places. Anyway, ten or fifteen of us would go in, and everyone would buy a round, so you can picture the scene after a while (my wife hated this). They had Hale’s Ales there, and I always looked forward to this one, fresh on tap. What a way to end the week. BTW - I would have gotten the shirt and been on the plaque if we didn’t all get laid off...
