2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
10 years ago this was an awesome pale ale. 5 years ago it was considered decent. Now it is sub-standard. Look how far we’ve come and how the american pale ale has changed and become bigger, bolder, and hoppier. It’s a golden copper colored pale ale with a moderate amount of head. Aroma doesn’t jump out at you, but it’s mainly citrus and some grainy and slight toasty malt. The crystal malt sweetness is a bit candy-like and slightly artificial. The northwest cirtus hops are not too dominant in the flavor profile. Decently bitter and even slightly sour in the finish. Moderate in all categories.

This is an ok, middle of the road pale ale. It is like a weak version of their IPA. There is a good initial start with some hops but weak finish, not much nose.
