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

Fatehunter (1537) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 26, 2012
One finger of fluffy head with dark amber colored body. Smell is a nice pine and citrus. Taste is pine all the way with a nice malt balance. Solid and tasty. Soft texture with moderate carbonation and medium body. A nice and drinkable IPA with a good profile.

Ferris (6902) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 3, 2015
Draft - Light citrus and pale malts. Hazy gold with a rich white head. Citrus and a sweet pale malt. Nice balanced bitterness, but maybe a bottom sweet.

jmm635 (906) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Poured copper in color with a white head. Aroma of caramel malts and grassy hops and resin. Doesn’t taste as fresh as I was hoping for. Just ok.

Pretty good for a Flagship beer. It was definitely their best Pale Ale on tap today.

"a simplistic but tasty light copper colored american pale ale. pretty by the book as well, but nice enough. refreshing and flavorful, if light and lacking in complexity."

RedSox2004 (1397) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Golden amber with a tight white he and decent lace. Modest pine and citrus hops with a balancing crystal malt sweetness. Medium body, lively carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a crisp finish.

Barreras (1168) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Pours a copper color with a slight floral aroma. A pure hops and mild sweet caramel flavor. Taste is easy drinking except for its bitter aftertaste. A slight too hoppy for my taste but overall a decent beer.

maxwelldeux (4102) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Draught in a flight at the Mill Creek Brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy amber color. Nose is grassy with some slightly sweet resin notes coming through. Taste is moderately bitter, but tastes extremely old - like it had been brewed upwards of a year prior.

stevoj (2664) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Decent, but average pale ale. Light bodied, some dry hops bitterness, overall light mouthfeel, but just an average beer to enjoy with food.
