COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Spring forward with this refreshing seasonal ale. Notes of toasted malt up front with a bright and crisp Northwest hop finish. Itís a session beer that everyone can enjoy.

Medium body, snappy hops and 6 percent ABV may be a bit too much for some, but this is a highly sessionable beer to me. Malts are toasty and cracker-like with a subtle, cake-like sweetness. Hops are extremely flowery and somewhat citrusy (lemon mostly). A grassy bitterness lingers for a good amount of time on the tongue and continues to waft with floral notes. Good stuff. I think Iíll have another.

22oz bottle..if this is a session beer then its a very good one. great floral and citrus nose. hazy yellowish orange color and nice lacing. the flavor of the hops is very nice for such a light beer. if i could get it here i would buy it. works great with sushi.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2011 Aroma is full of hops (I think mostly Cascade) and cereal malt. Hazy yellow with a little bit of orange and a white, finely bubbled head. Nice bitter grassy hop bit right up front that follow all the way through the finish with some grapefruit at the end. Well balanced with the light toasted malt and a little honey sweetness in the finish. Hops are strong but not overpowering or resiny. An excellent warm weather beer with some real character!

Fannntastic for me! Has that toasty, malty salty sunflower palate. The body and flavor remind me of a big west coast Irish red ale. Organic personality. Finish is slightly sweet up front and then ends with bitter dry malty hops. If you can get this donít pass it up. Itís a real treat. Iíve got to get me some more. Awesome!

Had from bottle from BevMo. Seasonal release, first Iíve seen it in stores. Pours copper with good head and good lacing. Aroma is piney hops, malts, citrus, and sugar. Flavor is about the same with the almost perfect balance of hops and malts. I really enjoyed this Pale, maybe because of the increased hops. Just a nice, drinkable, tasty beer.

650 ml bottle. Pours a translucent copper color with a big foamy white head that has great retention and oodles of sticky lacing. The aroma is relatively mild with piney hops and lightly roasted barley malts. The flavor is more of the same with biter hops taking center stage followed by biscuit, toffee, walnuts and then more biter hops. The palate is full and malty with lively carbonation. The finish is long, dry and biter. Overall: One of the more biter APAís, very much enjoyed.
