UPDATED: AUG 7, 2016 355ml bottle. Pours cloudy dark gold with little head. Spicy aroma, with some of that spice coming through with some citrusy hops and a very controlled bitterness. Very easy drinking but not at all exciting.

호피한 느낌의 페일에일. 뭔지모를 향이 있는데 허브향에 가깝다. 가볍지 안ㄹ은 바디감이 있다. 효모가 보이는듯하다.

popiela (529) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 5, 2016
Butelka 0,355l. Aromat z butelki przyjemny, chmielowy, cytrusowy, ze słodową, delikatnie karmelową podbudową. Obfita piana, zamglone złoto. Ze szkła dochodzi do głosu mocniej aromat chmielowy, ale tutaj już głównie białe owoce i tropiki. W smaku słodowo-chmielowe, jednak w kierunku słodu. Goryczka niska do umiarkowanej. Przyjemny, chmielowy finisz. Nasycenie umiarkowane.

Named after the mountainous region of the Western United States, this beer is about as fresh as they come. Beer pours a snowy 2 finger head. Aroma of hops, pine and yeast. Tastes bitter and malty. Lots of green on the palate notably pine and grass. Hoppy citric finish. Very thirst-quenching and fresh. Probably the second best Pale Ale I’ve tried but definitely the best American.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a shaker. Nice golden-amber color with an off-white head. Nose of malts and a little hops. Caramel. Moderately bitter finish.

Well balanced pale ale. Heavier on the malt than a lot of more modern pales, and the hops and bitterness are subdued somewhat. All the same, a tasty beer and easy drinking.

bartzluke (595) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 23, 2016
12 oz from bottle into tulip. A style-defining beer. Exactly what I think when I think pale ale. A little citrus, a little malt, a lot of flavor without being overpowering

PowY (146) - - JUL 22, 2016
355 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange with an off-white head. The aroma is hoppy with pine needles and some hidden citric notes. Medium body with medium carbonation. The taste is a little fruity with grapes and berries and a solid lightly sweet malty backbone. In the end a mild hoppy bitterness comes into play

Not much aroma, but once poured has a good golden appearance. Taste is gentle not overly malty, with mild aftertaste on the palate. Overall a good beer but not stand out
