2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(12oz bottle thanks to mora2000) pale yellow, very few fine white bubbles. Nose is really subdued, malty, biscuit, very light creamsickle, just boring. Taste is really malty, papery, no hops to balance this one out at all, creamy, biscuit, weird astringent aftertaste, weird citrus esters too that just don’t come out. Dry finish which is weird considering how malty it was.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Appearance is a hazy yellowish golden color with a half-inch of foamy white head. The aroma is an even blend of malted barley and floral hops with a little bit of citrus in the background. The taste has more of a nutty malt and caramel flavor to it upfront backed by some herbal hops bitterness and dried apricot notes. The body is smooth and well-carbonated with a clean, hoppy finish. Well done APA worth working into the summer beer rotation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle pours a bronze color with 2 fingers of white head and lots of lacing. A pleasing hoppy aroma with hints of cereal grain. Taste is a pleasant hoppy bitterness balanced nicely with a light malty sweetness. Light to medium body and moderate carbonation leave a nice feeling on the palate. This is a really nice pale ale which I enjoyed while sitting around campfire in Washington state on vacation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Jolly Roger Taproom. Slightly hazy, light burnt orange appearance with a white head. Nice, sweet, citrusy, earthy hoppy, sweet malty nose. A little tangy, citrusy, slightly piney flavor but that is a little subdued and allows for the toasty pale maltimess to come through. Nice brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery 8-4-10. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with an aroma full of citrus hops - lemon, grapefruit with a little spiciness. Firmly bitter and big hop flavor, but slightly out of balance. Seems a little thin and not quite enough malt to back up the large hop character. Definitely a pacific NW pale ale. Almost like an IPA lite.
