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

A very satisfiying and enjoyable pale ale. The color is orangish and the head retention is good. Some light caramel and nuttiness in the flavor to help support the bitterness. The aroma is grassy with notes of grapefruit and piney. An everyday pale ale...nice job!

Reid (1873) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 30, 2010
22 oz bottle from Roths Sunnyside store, Salem. Clear golden ale in appearance..large frothy off white head. Semi spicy hoppy aromas,quite strong, some yeast and dough in the back Quite a hoppy pale indeed..well hopped bitter, citric zestiness..smotths out a bit near the end. Not too thick on the palate..well carbonated and goes down well..a good summer pale. Overall i liked this one not too complex but very drinkable.

koopa (338) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2010
22oz bottle purchased from Liquid Solutions. Appearance: Very pale translucent orange with a nice 2 finger white crown. Some retention and lots of lace. Smell: Grass, peppercorn, floral hops, light caramel malt. Taste: A touch of hop bitterness couples a slightly grapefruit slightly tangerine flavor profile. Label says 3 kinds of caramel malt but they are not very present in the flavor. Mouthfeel: Extremely thin and a bit boring. Drinkability: Low abv, thin mouthfeel, enough flavor to keep it from seeming typical. This one is a a slight miss for me. It’s interesting and will appeal to lots of people though.

marcus (6420) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear yellow with a modest white head and a citrus aroma. The flavor is initially sweet caramel malt, but quickly becomes bitter with a very dry finish.

From a bottle. Shared with Duffman. Very nice pale ale with a wonderful hoppy/bitter aftertaste that isn’t overpowering or palate killing. Very drinkable beer.

DuffMan (6644) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 3, 2010
Bottle, shared with Parksy on his birthday! Pours a slightly hazy honey golden with an average foamy white head. Very hoppy aroma: lots of pine and grapefruit. Light biscuity malts are eclipsed by a hugely hoppy palate, lots of grapefruit rind and pine, some pepper in the finish. Very bitter-- I’d have guessed more than 45 IBUs for sure. Loved it!

Bomber poured a hazy tarnished gold with a lasting creamy off white head. Aromas of biscuit, grapefruit, earthiness and a hint of orange. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, light grapefruit and a hint of pine with a crisp dry moderatly bitter finish.

22. Pours a nice cloudy bright medium orangey amber. Loose scattering of white head and sedimentary, stringy lace. Dark, earthy hop nose, a little bit of peaty sting, almost smells like rye. Bit of butter there too, more’s the pity. Creamy medium body, lively carb. Earthy, biscuity, husky mid-palate with a hot pine flash at the end. Lingering resiny finish. This might grow on me but it’s a bit imbalanced to the dry bitter side with not much holding it up.

Draft HUB. Clear golden with thin white head. Peppery pine with hints of grass. Slightly sweet for a second then some bitter wet grass. Thin and lacking a bit.
