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

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Out of a bottle into a pint glass. Golden pour to light amber once in the glass. A nice half finger of head formed and held. Wow, honeysuckle, lime and grapefruit in the background. An excellent fragrance. Lots going on in this drink. Soft texture and honey at first, moving to lots of carbonation and a hop kick and ending with a touch of honey again. The first drink was surprising, but after a couple it is nice. It tends towards an IPA with the amount of hops coming through. It is probably on the edge of its style but that only makes me like it a little more. A little confused with the abrupt changes from honey to hops and back again... but definitely worth a sixer.

Westchesterco (898) - mclean, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2014
From notes: Poured from a bottle it is a cloudy golden color with a slight head. The aroma is citrus and it has a bitter flavor of citrus mainly oranges that lingers on the palate.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2014
6% session beer, lol. Sure, if you’re a sumo. Golden-bronze colour. Toasty malt with a touch of apple. Berryish character, splash of bitterness and then there’s a dry, hoppy finish. Ok brew.

Barreras (968) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Pours a light copper color with a full floral bouquet of aroma. Taste is light, good amount of spruce, toasted malt, with a hop finish. Mild bitterness at the end of every swallow. Good complexity and very easy drinking, a nice seasonal beer that would be an everyday drinker during the summer.

Stew41 (1736) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2014
Firm, dry and very refreshing. The bitterness is far from over the top but it cuts an excellent line through the palate with the dry herbal notes. Good season beer.

maxwelldeux (3542) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark copper color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is pretty light to me, and I only get some grassiness coming off it. Taste is actually fairly bitter, but has a nice bit of toasting coming through on it. Pretty decent drink.

From bottle. Golden color with creamy white head. Aroma is sweet citrus, caramel malt, and a touch of bitter pine. Taste is tart grapefruit, caramel malt, pine, and grass. Fairly well balanced malt and hops, but just a hint too much grassy bitterness in the finish.
