3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
32 oz growler from Growl Movement pours into a 16 oz shaker.
$7 for the 32 oz.
Golden amber coloured ale with a good sized frothy cream head.
Aroma is decidedly hop free..more of an English style honeyed leaf.
Taste again very balanced honeyish sweet malts with a touch of piney dank hops..a very slight touch.
Mouth feel is medium all around and quite nice.
If i had to categorize this it would have been in the English Pale Ale style..that overwhelms any PNW aspect.
But a good easy drinking pint.

Keg at the taproom in Corvalis, 10/11/14.
Clear golden orange with a decent off white covering that dissipates then retains.
Nose is citric sherbets, earthy hops, light mineral notes.
Taste comprises orange squash, citric pithdom, straw, hoppy rinse in the close.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with chalky mineral rinse.
Ok APA but no Kernel lets face it, needs more hop and citricana.

On draught at Sky High. Nice golden color. Hop and smooth barley aroma. Malty, biscuit taste with mild hop profile. Overall, good pale ale.
