COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In this part of the country, pale ales and IPAs don’t need any introduction. There are so many examples of the style, which run the gamut from being nicely balanced to overly hop forward. We tried to make a pale ale with a light malt backbone and nice bitterness that would support and balance an unmistakably emphasized hop aroma and flavor. We used several varieties of hops so that none would dominate and would blend together to give a nice citrusy and floral aroma.

Draught at the brewery
Blond color. Light citrusy aroma, light asparagus. Dry mouthfeel, a bit weak, but clean; not much malt flavor, but fairly bitter.
Nice.

On tap at Northwest Peaks, pours a clear pale golden with a medium white head. Aroma brings out biscuity malt and floral hops. Flavour brings out biscuity malt, dry floral hops, and some astringency on the finish. Decent pale ale.

Tap at Fiddlers under the name "Spring Pale". I assume this is the right beer; if not, I’ll adjust accordingly. Light maize pour, white head, surprising amounts of lacing. Grassy hop aroma, malts backgrounded, a bit of cracker, hints of grapefruit, peppery notes mid-late. After reading after4ever’s rating, I totally get the corn nuts. Super-drinkable; this one is gone in no time flat. Decent first taste of NW Peaks.

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Copper body topped by a ring of lather. Easy herbal hoppy nose, that is distinctly "green" and grassy. The flavor also evinces this green and grassy flavor with some floral evergreen notes as well.

Burnt oak appearance Not a lot of aroma. Very interesting. And this is hard to explain but it tastes like watered down jack Daniels with some clementines and floral notes

LilBeerDoctor (3505) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2013
On tap. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus, hop oils, grassy hops, earthy hops, crackery malt, and malt. Flavor of grassy, garlicky hops, caramel malt, tropical fruits, citrus. Super hoppy, lots of hoppy flavors interacting, very nice! Definitely an IPA... 8/4/8/4/16 (4.0/5)

kramer (5092) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Tap, brewery. Pours a clear yellow gold body with a small wispy white head that faded to a thin covering. Lots of heavy lacing. The nose is moderately citrusy with a soft pale malt base. The flavor is generally pretty light with some tropical fruit hops and a pale malt base. Nicely drinkable with a light but very crisp bitterness. Light bodied and easy drinking with soft fizzy carbonation. Some lingering fruity hops on the finish. Pretty nice sessionable APA.

Draft at the source. Hazy pale yellow color, thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of subtle meadow. Taste is fruity grass and flowers.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2013
Draught @ Burgundian:   Pale straw, little carbonation, moderate white foamy head, decent lacing.   Somewhat of a strawish/grainy nose.   Strong grassy/hay on the tongue, a little soily.   Not much hop bite at all.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Big grassy/straw finish.   Decent beer, but its not like a Pale Ale.   More like some sort of Kolsch, not only in looks but also in flavor. Its like a really grainy Kolsch.

Draft at sb. Pours a slightly hazy pale gold with a loose white head. Mild toasty nose, some soft herbal hop notes. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty, lightly herbal mid palatw. Long corn nutty finish.
