3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a credible but slightly failed experiment--to create a session ale that satisfies someone who’d rather be drinking an IPA. They’ve tried to give it hop punch, a little body and malt, while keeping the alcohol down. It almost works. The hops are definitely present, a nice peppery zip, and the malt is trying--if not succeeding--at holding up its end. The whole thing finishes badly, though, with a hollow, tinny flavor, the hops fading to an unpleasantly harsh note with nothing to hold them up.

Rating #1906 - 2015.09.24 - #CraftTakesSeattle Beer 4 - Flight at Pike Taproom. Clear golden pour, steady white foam that bubbles away slowly to a soapy ring. Aroma is grassy malts, hints of caramel, peach, orange. Taste is a mild sweetness, honey, citrus followed by a mild hop bite. Pleasant.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Softly soapy citrus and a touch of malt on the nose. Medium bodied, light malt, crisp with a touch of lemon. Soft musk.

Draft pour pint at Pike. Light clear golden pour with a ton of foam head and lacing. Sweet orage peel bitter aroma and flavor. Decent amount of flavor going on, but not too interesting. Bitter bread finish. Alright.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a half finger of head on a hazy straw body.
The aroma is a mixture of ripe orange and mandarin with a little wet hay.
The taste is initially orange fruit sweet, a touch of bitter, then a little watery to the end.
The texture is soft and light.
It has great aroma and tastes fine.
