Seasonal Release Series. 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.

Like many Ninkasi beers, this is an ale more than a specific style, though we put it in the Northwest Pale category. A light toasted malt flavor is more reminiscent of a British Pale, but the hops are bright and very Northwest. Flavorful and easy to drink!

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Bottle. Opaque amber with some white head. Aroma is biscuity malt and an oily, flowery blend of hops. Flavor is the same, some mild sweetness up front that yields to resinous bitterness and a small amount of citrus. Oily finish.

hahobbs (6) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2010 does not count
One of the better spring seasonals I have tasted. Pours a vibrant, translucent red with perfect foam, and leaves a beautiful lace on the glass. First impression is unmistakable hop aroma, almost IPA-strength, but taste is smooth and crisp, not too hoppy. A refreshing and relaxing spring beer.

StormCoat (119) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Tasted a bomber bottle from Bevmo in San Diego, California. Pours a nice, hazy honey color with a fluffy head that leaves light lacing. Has a very refreshing, lemony aroma, and a light to medium-bodied palate. Taste is good; citrus flavor gives way to an earthiness that is almost coffee-like, and a pleasant, slightly bitter finish. This is a nice, light IPA. Not amazing, but solid and refreshing. I would definitely drink it again.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 25, 2010
22oz bottle from BevMo. Pours a mostly clear pale orange color with a nice frothy off white head, good lacing. Nose starts with toasted biscuits followed light grass and faint citrus. Fairly bitter on the palate with some grain and toasted malts.

marcus (8589) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 21, 2010
Pours hazy amber with a decent beige head and a light toffee aroma. There is a slightly thin pale malt flavor with a piny hop flavor that makes this brew interestingly bitter. Otherwise, a rather average pale ale.

IndianaRed (3420) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 18, 2010
Bottle pours a slightly hazy light yellowish amber with only a skin of a off white film serving as an excuse for a head. Aroma is a sweet papery light malt with some soft vanilla notes. Tastes a surprising lightly toasted flavor, cereal and and odd late bitterness that is not what I would call "Northwest" hops. Papery and leathery. Strange. Not strong enough to be offensive, but curious and a bit out of place. Not exactly dry, but medium bodied and lacking the crispness of a more attenuated APA. Just odd...

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 16, 2010
On tap at Collins. Pours a honey straw color with an off-white head and clings. Aromas of sugar and caramel and toasted malts. Taste is hoppy, though, with sharp citrus and some floral.

DuffMan (8794) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 4, 2010
Bottle, shared with parksy. Pours a slightly hazy deep orange amber with a creamy vanilla head. Toasty and fruity aroma. Very toasty toffee flavours, citrus and conifer hops with a moderately bitter finish. Compared to Pyramid Fling, this had more tout. Very nice.

beerguy101 (5350) - Newark, California, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Sampled on 3/26/2010. This American Pale Ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is citrusy and hoppy, malty and sweet. A medium bodied American Pale Ale. The malts are caramel, malty and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy. Nice balance. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp.

Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 24, 2010
22 oz bottle from New Seasons - This one had a fantastic floral aroma right out of the bottle with about a 3/4 inch foam head. Once the foam dissipated a little, some of the aroma went away. Palate was a bit lively, but not too much. Nice bitter finish for a Pale. This is a very nice beer. Too bad itís only available in the spring.
