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

Certainly a nice, pleasant, and drinkable pale ale. The mouth feel was rather viscous and the taste was just a tad sweet. Hopping was nice. Very refreshing.

Masterkush7 (389) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2013
Poured a near clear amber with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a nice citrus note with some grapefruit and a bit of backing bread. Flavor was a bit thin with some grapefruit and grass notes with a backing grass note.

kramer (4695) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a minimal thin ring of off-white head. The nose is citrusy with a caramel malt backbone. Fairly aggressive bitter flavor up front but the sweet caramel malt wins out on the finish leaving a bland and generic caramel and crystal malt back end. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a slightly sticky finish. Overall pretty pedestrian and boring.

Bottle poured into a pint glass. Bottle a gift from friend returning from Seattle. Pours cloudy orange amber with a quickly dissipating head. Smells of bitter citrus almost lemony. Taste is definitely IPA but watery & weak. Glad I didn’t buy it but grateful to try a brew I wouldn’t have otherwise thought to purchase.

Copper, hazy, off-white head. Malty with some caramel and toast, a little piney hops. Finishes balanced. Pleasant amber ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fatehunter (1100) - 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.
