COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Payette Pale Ale is a beer made for the mountain, the river and the local pub. Brewed as an American Pale Ale that is heavy on the hops, the Pale comes through with a touch of caramel sweetness to balance out the hop bitterness. Floral notes dominate the nose, with grapefruit and orange aromas present in the background. After a long day shredding on the mountain or floating the river, kick back and enjoy this fully flavored session beer.

On tap at Fedora in CDA, ID. Slightly hazy golden pour with a lacy white head. Not much aroma here, but I’m getting some piney, citrusy nose. Bittersweet flavor. Flavors of pine and catbox. Thin body with soft carbonation. Crisp and refreshing but it’d be better with a bigger body and more carbonation.

Can sample at a tasting at Troubles’ place. Thanks Denny. Hazy gold with white wave. Hoppy, fruity aroma of melon. Mild bitterness, that becomes a bit more biting in the next sip. Light body, fruity bitter finish.

Can sample at a tasting at Dror’s place. Thanks Denny. Hay golden with a white head. Pleasant hoppy aroma - "green", dank, weedy and citric. Rather dry flavor with "green" weedy hops, slightly citric, and nice bitterness. Medium-bodied. Nice and fresh.

Pours a cloudy amber with short head. Aroma is mild hop with a little malt sweetness. Taste is balanced and appealing. Like this one.

Actually a pretty decent pale, light caramel malt body against mild citrus hops with nice dusty notes.

"Standard apa just about across the board. Caramel sweetness tempered with a slightl blast of citrusy hops. Not enough of them to really take notice though a decent session beer. 2nd time not a charm. Booooring."

bhensonb (12130) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Can from Brewforia. Pours orange tinged gold with a white head. Aroma seems mostly floral with citrus backing, and the caramel is hard to find. Med body or nearly. Flavor is rather lush floral and grapefruit. Caramel is present, but hardly noticeable. This is hoppy stuff, but not harshly bitter. Good drink. Especially considering the ABV.

TXBadger (1785) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Pours a nice darker amber color with white head. Pine, grapefruit, and caramel malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little floral hop note.

Oakes (13270) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
Hazy tan. The aroma has a touch of diacetyl, light caramels. Earthy, sweetish, no real hop flavour. Tastes a bit yeasty, too.

pinkzambia (1615) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Can: cloudy copper color with an off-white head. Aroma of pine, musty grass. Flavors of light juniper and dry rubber. Thin body and stuff aftertaste.

jdb288 (584) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Fresh can. Pours muddy orange, slight head. Aroma is floral, orange citrus, lavender. Taste is bitter hop, fishy (I know, odd description...but it is), some honey. Nothing stands out, no real balance.
