Copper, huge white head. Subtle grapefruit aromas, and lots of light citrus flavors. Cracker like malty notes and a peppery finish. Simple and tasty. I would drink a lot of this if I could.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy darker amber color with a moderate white head. Nose is a little hoppy, but fairly light, though with a bit of floral notes. Taste is slightly bitter, but light and easy to drink. Not bad at all.

Tap at Jack Rose. Clear orange. Good foam and lace. Solid citrus hoppy IPA. Good palate, surprisingly not as astringent in palate as most tap beers at Jack Rose. Mild odd vinegar nose distracts, unfortunate. Otherwise this was the most drinkable beer on tap tonight.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 2/10/13
Aroma: The aroma of this one is fresh NW pine, with some grass and fruity notes as well
Appearance: Pours a hazed golden-orange with a full finger of off-white froth and medium lace
Flavor: The flavor is clean and fresh pine hops, with some light sweetness and light-medium bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it is smooth, clean, fresh, and quite drinkable, with a soft carbonation
This is a really solid pine fronted Pale Ale. It is right on, with a very nice fresh Northwestern U.S. feel to it. This is an excellent APA.

22 dec 2012, tap at their brew pub. Yellow, clear, no bubbles. Nose is faint lemon and grassy hops. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Not very nice. Stanky bitter hops. Not that nice.

650 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained off white head, over a clear dark gold (SRM 7) body.....nose is light resin, grapefruit peel, hints of bread....taste is pine, grapefruit peel, toffee/caramel sweetness, leading to a moderate bitter finish.....mouth feel medium, slightly astringent, carbonation adds tingle. This is a moderate take on the APA style. Neither the hops nor the malts are particularly complex, and the first sip reminded me of a Pils. It became more obvious that it was an APA on the second sip. This is not a bad beer, just ordinary for the style. BJCP 6/3/11/4/6
