on tap-pours a retaining thin white head that laces and yellow/gold color. Aroma is mild citrus/lemon-hops. Taste is nice citrus/lemon zest/pine hops-some bitter, faint malt. OK carbonation.

Judicious, clever hopping keep this APA subtle and unassuming. A decent, drinkable beer thatíll do fine when you donít need or want your socks knocked off.

Standard pale ale. I didnít pick up on the Czech hops, but there is a nice, mild hop aroma. Good flavor with sweet malt and lightly bitter hops.

Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Bottleworks in Seattle. Pours a hazy orange amber brew with a thick white head that has good retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, citrusy zest, with some orange/tangerine character. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with a orange citrus zest with just a hint of caramel malt. The extra bitterness brings in a metalic texture. Finish is dry, slightly spicey with a sour orange flavor that lingers around for a while. The brewer has no shyness in using hops in this brew.

Thanks to skyview for sharing. Cloudy light orange body. Very nice corange citrus hop nose. Flavor begins with a little bit of malt, develops and unfortunate metallic tinge mid palate, and then slides into the citrus hops I found in the nose.

Draught from the Jolly Roger in Seattle. Expected bigger things from this pale ale. Nothing about it was bad, but nothing really stood out either. Probably had something to do with being placed in the middle of a 5-beer sampler.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2009 Had the dry-hopped version on tap for breakfast at the 5-spot in Upper Queen Anne. Excellent. A truly fine pale cale, crisp and clean. It had a great floral hop character to it and was consistent throughout. A great finish.
Had again and scored it a 4.5 Great beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy amber/orange with a frothy white head leaving striped lace. Aromatic hop aroma--lots of orange and grapefruit, with some peach and biscuit to caramel malt underneath. Caramel malt flavor with bright citrusy hops throughout. Dry hop finish, leaving some lingering bitterness. Hoppiness is way more than "subtle" as advertised in the commercial description entered on this site. Thereís an assertive citrusy hoppiness here, but Iím not complaining. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Seems like thereís some fine residual yeast in this one as well. Overall one of the better APAís Iíve had in a while.

Poured an amazing glowing orange color. Swirly creamy head. Great lacing. Very very very enjoyable beer. Perhaps the best pale ale from Seattle!
