An American style pale ale, this brew is hopped four times using plentiful quantities of Cascade and Columbus hops. The flavor is balanced by a subtle maltiness obtained from five varieties of malted barley and a slight fruitiness, to produce a classic beer in the style of the Pacific Northwest. A clean crisp ale with distinctive hop aroma.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a nice malt and hops smell Appearance- this is a murky amber colored brew with a small off-white head. Taste- Has a yeast flavor and malt mixture, not bad. Palate- This is a medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation. Overall- Not a bad beer, slightly above average. I would drink this again.

Clear medium orange yellow color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, pale malt, moderate hoppy, citrus, some strange fruity ? Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and light to moderate bitter with a long duration, fruity, pale malt, and again the strange fruit ? Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft.

In honesty this one most of been infected...so take it for what it's worth. Foggy orange color. Super tart and green apple. Little to no hop distinction. Maybe I'll try and rate some other time. Of course, maybe not.

Snowy white head on a foggy, light oaken beer. Squat twistoff 12oz bottle with a label that looks like an altar scene from Beneath the Planet of the Apes. Chimp on the cap. Pickle-y, apricot malt and thoroughly-brewed hop aroma. Biscuity, golden raisins, not aggressively bitter, a little lemon zip. Definitely wouldn’t be confused with IPA. Medium mouthfeel, brushy carbonation. Pretty refeshing, a little on the bland side, a good picnic beer. Thanks to PorterPounder for schlepping this back for me from Georgia.

chinchill (2554) - South Carolina, USA - APR 14, 2014
UPDATED: APR 23, 2014 12 oz bottle dated 2014 and delivered by the distributor yesterday. Durable bone-colored head over an amber body. Fruity aroma with an off-note. Likewise, the flavor, though modestly pleasing, is rather odd with a mildly tart note of lemons and unripe apricots. O: strongly suspect infected bottle. Will revisit with another. Seems a bit better but stil wierd, with a surprising and unmistakable tartness. ---- revisited with a fresh 12 oz bottle date notched Feb. 2014 on 23 April 2014. Ratings remain appropriate as is.

Albany, Ga. - Warehouse Package Store - 12 oz bottle. Hazy medium gold pour, pillowy, snow white head with nice lacing. Aroma is sour and funky and has just a hint of vinegar. Solid flavor with some doughy notes, a hint of peach, some light citrus bitterness. Thickish mouthfeel. Does in a pinch.

A blonde ale with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with light grassy hops, OK. In mouth, a smooth biscuit malt with grassy and lightly floral hops, OK. On tap at brewery.
