COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer bridges east and west with a lane dedicated to riders who aren’t afraid to get dirty. Three kinds of organic caramel malts and a 24 pound whirlpool hop bomb keep things interesting while the wheels go round and round. Cheers to narrow knobbies, kazoos, and more cowbell! 12.5°, 45 IBU

On draught at Hopworks Urban Brewery. Clear full golden color. Floral, citrus aroma. Taste is sweet, slightly tart citrus with a touch of light malt. Well-balanced and pleasant citrus aftertaste.

Tap at Hopworks - lightly hazy old - medium body - clean and medium sweet - earthy, piney hops - a bit of a mineral quality - slight herbal, tea-like notes - a little vegetal on the tail end - meh.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle:   Golden, slight dirty haze, large frothy off-white head, sticky lacing, very light carbonation.   Not much of a hop aroma, moreso a barnish funk of a malt aroma.   Slight earth and soil matter.   Noticeable hops on the tongue, still light tho.   Less of an organic bite than I would have thought by the nose, but still noticeable.   Lingering mealy malts, some of that barnish funk.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   A little dry on the backside, powdery, sticks to my tongue and makes me smack my lips.   Decent Pale Ale, but not as juicy/floral/bitter I would have loved. That and the fact that it was a little mealy/funky/barnish/soily sorta of detracted.   I’ll stick with their IPA.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with small white head. Smooth with a hint of hoppy bitterness in the finish, but not overpowering. Just the way I like a good pale ale!

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 4, 2011
At hub with Carla. Pours gold with white foam. Smells sweetly hoppy. Tastes slightly tangy with hints of apricot and a bitter pine flavor.

A rather standard brewpub pale ale. Cudos for the organic label, but put a little more umph in your beer!

Draft at BikeBar. Aroma of grass, taste is similar. Decent body. Nice eample of a proper pale ale.

22oz. Great hoppy English style beer. Surprised ratings aren’t a bit higher, but not much behind their IPA. Great brewery.
