COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the style of the great ales of the Pacific Northwest, this complex combination of Pilsner and Caravienne malts and Apollo, Simcoe, Cascade and Amarillo hops make it a great session beer.

Pale orangish yellow, nice foam top, exhibits good carbonation. Very sweet, fruity aroma. Bitter hop taste, cascades are nice. Dry mouthfeel, small bite and medium-heavy finish. Superb lacing.

Sampler at NXNW- very small off white head, cloudy hazen amber appearance, aroma of hops and, for some reason, light evergreen trees. Hits the mouth with a medium body, the malt is in near perfect balance with the hops, finish is good and strong. My favorite of the evening.

Decent aroma with a light flavor. One of the better cabonations in the North by Northwast beers. I would have again!

lb4lb (2552) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 28, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2008 Pours light golden, with very little head. Aroma is a nice piney hop flavor with maybe some cedar too. I really liked the fresh, woodsy smell of this one. Taste was of some mild hop bitterness, and a good balanced malt behind it. Overall a slightly sweet pale ale that is very drinkable. I liked it a lot and ordered a pint after having it in the sampler. My favorite of the NXNW beers so far.

On cask at NXNW. Copper with thin white head. Nose of citrus, slightly floral aroma. Fair amount of roasted nut flavor. Enjoyable.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 7, 2007
Draught at the brewpub
Hazy golden color with a nice lace. Nice hoppy aroma, a bit fruity (Cascade, light grapefruit) . Average strength, with some malt (not enough) and a good clean hoppy line (Cascade, a bit fruity, with some hop resins).

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Draft - Orange, creamy white head. Floral, citrus, and pine nose throughout. Hopped up flavors that receive a nice helping of caramel sweetness for balance. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry, semi-bitter finish. Decent...

Had on tap at the brewery. Definitely the best of the six in the sampler. Pale copper in color with a little cloudiness. Huge cascade aroma and flavor. Very fruity and citrussy. Moderate to high bitterness.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Tap. Well, I most of had the new recipe, because this beer was magnificent. Nice honey body with a lasting 1/2 inch head. Nose-good fresh clean hops. A great classic APA clean hoppy nose. Taste-my first impression is that this is a bit thin, but good. What it has, it does well with, if you know what I mean. The hops are in the background and upfront at the same time while the malt is balanced just right with the hops. The only NXNW beer that I ordered twice..
