Medium-to full-bodied with a deep copper color and nutty malt flavor. Well-balanced by an assertive hop character.

NABA BeerFest 03: A very nice pale ale, better than most at the fest. This was my final beer at the fest, so memory kinda blurry and notepad is just full of scribbles at that point. I believe it was very good with a nice amount of hops and full body to back it up, could almost be an ipa, but not quite.

Orange/amber body, thin, off white head. Clean, citrucy and a hint of flowers. Pale malts, fruity, some caramel. Pretty sticky yet clean malt character. Nice and toasty, and nutty. A bit astringent, very clean and dry, bubbly palate. Some dry, bready warmth.

dark copper color and hoppy citrus malt aroma, with a critrus hopy taste and a good carbonation.

Whilst in Seattle, I was fortunate enough to visit Pikes Pub and tried a Pale Ale. Deep golden colour, good head, Hoppy flavour with slight malt balance.

Suttree (5148) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 27, 2003
Golden Orange with a white head. Hops pop up forst, and it is rather well balanced. Sour to tart finish. At this point, I'm noticing a Pike characteristic - the is a tart/sour flavor seemingly in all their beers. Not neccessarily a bad thing, but Kinda makes all their beers seem the same.

Copper color with a thin off-white head when poured out of the bottle. There is an odd pungent sweetness that I associate with underdone homebrew. Nice body and good with food, but not the best pale ale for drinking.

pretty dark for an apa but that's about the only thing that stands out, light hop flavors with minimal hop bitterness

Just another northwest Pale ale. Rich dark red brown color with a nice rocky head. Malt aroma manages to come through the abundant hops. Malt and hops are in a very powerful balance the hops win. The flavor ends as fast as it comes. Ya this beer has changed over the years but it is still winner

A staple on draught and from the bottle throughout the Pacific Northwest, this one has sadly changed siginificantly in the past few years. While its still exceptionally characteristic of a traditional pale ale, featuring a rich golden hue, striking balance of hops and malts, and a spritzy and pungent kick on the palette, its not the stalwart classic it once used to be. I've recently become a litlte more accustomed to their Scotch style ale -- Kilt Lifter -- as a better replacement, albeit slightly different style. Having said that, this Pike is still a clear winner. Always consistent visually, aromatically, and tastewise. Its an easy drinking beer, and thanks to its bitter kick, is a super accompaniment with good food.

Still good, but not like it used to be.Good hop nose. Lots of hops in the flavor
