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.

Bomber. Poured pale orange gold with thin fast dissipating white head. Thin brief whiff of hop and citrus. Stripy malt and hoppy flavour with a hop finish. Drinkable and not too expensive.

In a tulip glass at Monk’s Kettle at a Ninkasi paired dinner. Pours a brushed gold with a fluffy white head. Lots of buiscuit and bread with a clean meadow scent showing very late. Palate is very bitter and some nice grass hops at the end. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied to slightly thin.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAY 23, 2010
22oz bottle. Rating #68. Slightly hazy medium orange with a little brown and an off-white head. A lot of toasted maltiness right up front which pretty much dominated any other aroma’s that may have been present. Slight bitterness and a bit more toasted malt, but it was not as heavy as the aroma, it also had a bit of citrus to finish it off. (1253)

Hazy amber,thin head. Piney citrus hop smell. Taste is pretty good, but a very tart and strong bitter tastes that almost ruins. Not sweet enough for my liking for a pale ale.

Shared from a big brown bottle into a nonic glass, thanks gregwilsonstl. It poured a clear, light golden colour with substantial white foam, very long-lasting with lace. Strong hoppy aromas, some grains and freshly-cut grass underneath. A crisp, almost neutral malt flavour with strong bitterness balanced against it, resiny and citrusy hop flavours. American profile for sure, but not overwhelmingly grapefruity. It reminded me of Bells Third Coast Beer.

Bottle from portland, or. Aroma is toasted malt and some hops as well as floral and citrus notes. Pours pale golden colored with a thin white head and some lacing. Toasted malt flavors to start as well as some citrus and floral hints throughout. Finishes very dry with hop bitterness as well as some piney notes at the very end that are resiny that stuck to the palate. Decent pale, but there is a lot going on for a spring beer.

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.

Amber pour with thick white head. Sort of off-smelling toasted malt aroma with some floral notes. Grapefruit taste with more malt plus a soapy bitter finish, but still fairly smooth. Aftertaste is a little bit chalky, mouthfeel not too bad.

Ernest (6185) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle (rated in Mar 2009). Head is mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.

DavidWoodruff (390) - Windsor, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Aroma: melon and citrus. Appearance: Dark gold with thin white head. Flavor: Yeasty bread with a huge hop bitterness. Palate: light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Overall: A bit out of balance. More aroma hops and less bittering hops would be an improvement.
