COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic Northwest pale ale and McMenamins top selling beer. This rich chestnut colored gem is a model of harmony between hops and malted barley. Hammerhead's signature Cascade hop nose and intense hopped flavor blend nicely with the caramel tones from the crystal malt. This beer has a vocal following. To run out is an unforgivable sin. Malts: Pale Malt; Crystal Malt Hops: Cascades Specifications: Original Gravity: 1.056; Terminal Gravity: 1.010; Alcohol by Weight: 4.7% Calories/pint: 241

Great!!! Has an almost fruity quality to it, and the aroma is like candy. Medium head, and classic pale ale coloring. I suggest buying as much as possible. My new fave.

Very hoppy. Not a bad land though. smooth and easy to drink. Not quite as carbonated as other McMenamins beers. This is a good thing.

A nice ale made nicer by having the pub two blocks from work.

Full bodied, dark ale. Packs a punch. Hopped well, but subtle in flavor.

BillKismet (3334) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 10, 2002
Unexpectedly, this cloudy amber beer is pungent with the aroma and taste of hops. Pleasantly smooth with a thoroughly zesty hoppiness, Bit of a sour note on the finish, but an excellent beer.

In my opinion, one of the best APA’s out there. Too bad you can only find it at their pubs in the Northwest. Nice hops in the nose, and a pleasure to drink many of
