Light malty flavor and subtle hop character, Islander Pale Ale is a refreshingly different style of pale ale. Hop flavor supplied by Czechoslovakian hops, Unique!

Dry hopped cask. Golden with light citrus aroma. Hops come through more in the taste along with moderate bitterness. Well balanced and makes for a great session.

This orange gold pour has a bubbly white head. It smells of citrus hops and is quite bitter to the taste. The malt cuts in nicely and leaves a smooth and light finish.

9/11/08 On draught at Whistle Stop Alehouse, Renton Washington. This is one of their two house beers, and a dry hopped version of Islander. Aroma is a light, sweet blend of Caramel and floral PNW hops. Appearance is hazy gold with a well maintained white head. Flavor is slightly hop forward, but has a good amount of malt balance. It’s sweet but not cloying, slightly bready, and infuses well with the floral notes from the hops. Bittering is medium, sweet and has just a hint of grassiness, but no harsh earthiness. There’s a lot of citrus in the finish, but tends more to softer orange notes than harsh lemony astringency. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly creamy, with a very faint resin/starchy texture that is not objectonable. Carbonation is medium in texture. Overall, very easy drinking for a rather complex pale ale. There’s light flavors here, but more than enough to round out the pallette for many different types of beer preferences.

On draft at BrewPub - dry hopped version. Arrived a clear golden amber color with a small whitish head that leaves generous lace. Mild aroma with crispy florals and citrus along with toasty malts. Rich toasty and caramel malts, nice fruitiness with floral and citrus hops and a bit of spice. Medium body, creamy, tingly carbonation.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Bottle from Bierkraft. Pours without much head. Flavor has a crisp tangerine zest tanginess to it. Dry and dusty with a long, sweet finish. Seems like a nice candidate to end up in a firkin.

Pours a clouded gold with very little head. Nose is light fruits with a very faint touch of piney hops. Almost an effervescent orange on there as well. Very light. Flavor has a hoppy tone to it. Full, but not overpowering. Strong, but not shoving it down your throat. I guess I will describe it as full. Feel is a bit thicker on the liquid and high on carbonation. Very drinkable. A well crafted and calmer APA. Worth a shot.

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.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2007
Judicious, clever hopping keep this APA subtle and unassuming. A decent, drinkable beer that’ll do fine when you don’t need or want your socks knocked off.
