Historically, Pale refers to a beer that is not dark or black. Pale Ales are loved for their unique malt flavors and lingering hop flavors. Our version is copper-colored with a toffee-like malt character, and a big Cascade hop finish. 40 IBU.

Note: previously known as Fish & Game Plantation Pale Ale.

Alphadelic (2165) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Draft at the Brewpub: A crisp , pale-golden ale with a taut and cheeky white head. Big, sweet hops with citrus fruits giving it a real zingy aroma. Lovely balanced fruits and wholesome cereals. Deliciously in your face. Bitter but in a mellow way. Very crisp and light with a tight tingle on the tongue. Very tasty and drinkable if not the most remarkable ale. Bright and zingy. Good to go for a while.

Draft at the brewpub. Amber body, small head, hoppy nose. Hard to distinguish from the Big Swell IPA, except that this is a bit lighter.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2008 Went to Fish & Game for lunch and unfortunately only got to try this one beer (would have loved to sit there all afternoon and sample...). Copper color with a nice foamy head. Fruity aroma with a touch of hops. There seemed to be a nice amount of hop flavor in this for a Pale Ale. Slightly bitter bite with floral notes making it great for the 80 degree weather they were having that day (and pretty much everyday). Would love to have it again but not sure if that’s going to happen...

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Tap at brewery: Light caramel color; nice and frothy head. Malts had nice elements of nuts and caramel. Loved the hop profile, which was grassy and earthy. Aromas made me think of marijuana. Flavors made me think of hemp seeds. Nice pale.

hopdog (11560) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2007
On tap at the Maui Brewing Company Brew Pub. Poured a medium amber color with a very small sized off white head. Aromas of floral green hops, light caramel, and some citrus. Tastes of the same.

On tap at the brewery. I think that this is a very good APA. Nice hoppy aroma, with good flavors of malts and hops. In a blind tasting, side by side with other well respected APAs, I would guess that this brew would hold its own

Sampled at the brewery in beautiful Maui. Decent flavor of malts and hops. Nicely balanced but the hops came through a little more for me. Pretty good.

Draft at brewpub. Golden yellow with a nice head. Hoppy aromas and flavors. Citrus and some grassiness. One of my favorites of the night.
