on tap-pours an off white head that laces and gold color. Aroma is pine/sweet citrus, some light/medium malt. Taste is pine/sweet citrus hops, secondary light/medium malt-caramel. Easy. OK effervescence.

12. Pours a murky dark burnished amber with a loose and bubbly white head. Loose strings and sheets of lace on the sides of the glass. Nice piney, caramelly nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, nuts, caramel, and pine on the mid-palate. Bottom line, a comfortingly familiar and well-executed APA. Would happily drink again, especially in session volumes at session prices.

Sampled draught at Ice Harbor Brewpub in Kennewick, WA
Pale gold, light white head with some lacing. Nose of faint hops and wheatish tasting malts. The flavor is tart and lightly bitter, not very balanced but drinkable and smooth.

Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate white head on there. Nose is floral with some grassy notes to it. Taste is bitter and buttery, and seems like it is well past its freshness date. Too bad.
