COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich, Northwest-style Pale Ale is a rare feat of balance: unfiltered, dry-hopped to 40 IBUs, and deliciously sessionable. Groove on this two-time Great American Beer Festival® Gold Medal winner (2001 and 2002 Bitter Category). It really smoothes out the bumps.

Bottle. This one greets your nose with powerful hops and a lot of spices. Poured orange with nice head. Bitter start. Bitter finish. Mouthfeel is lively. Very unusual and different. Enjoyable to drink once you get used to the strong nose.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2006
Orange-gold, slightly hazy, with a white head. Delightful sweet floral and fruit aroma. Strong grapefruit bitterness after a hint of fruit sweetness in the taste. Very good.

paulmetzger (154) - Pocatello, Idaho, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Mountain Brewers Beer Fest 2006. Lack of appearance judging reflects opaque plastic sampling cup. light caramel breadiness. Hevy citrus aroma. Light subtle flavors of bubble gum, peach, vanilla. great dropy hopping. long lasting heavy bitter flavor. nice folks at the booth.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2006
On tap at Skybox sports bar in SLC. Pours a light clear copper with a small white head. Pretty nice Cascade hop aroma. Since this can only be 4%, it is like an APA Lite. Flavor has notes of grapefruit, slight pine and caramel - very light malt base. The body is expectedly on the thinner side, moderate carbonation. Not bad.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 23, 2006
The aroma is strong. It is a mixture of hoppy, fruity and vegetable-like notes. Sweet and spicy. The flavour is round and soft and contains a rather high concentration of fruity notes. It is a rather nice brew with a mild and smooth mouthfeel.

johndoughty (4083) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2006
An impessive pale ale. Quite floral and delicate yet with a full flavour.Considering it weighs in at a mere 4 per cent this is an excellent ale.

pastroup (2) - Alabama, USA - MAR 3, 2006 does not count
This beer leaves a strong, tangy aftertaste that is quite unpleasant. On the other hand, it has a sweet, honey-like aroma and feel that is quite unique.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JAN 20, 2006
(cask conditioned at the brewpub) hazy amber with a generous head. Pine hops aroma. Medium bodied with the lowish carbonation you’d expect from a cask ale. Nice hoppy flavor.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Cask at the Brew Pub, 2005 version: deep, orange-brown with a very persistent ivory foam. Bitter, grapefruit hop aromatics, with a nice vanilla offering. Served in a cold glass, but the beer was a nice cellar temp. Clean, soft palate with enough carbonation to carry the hops and keep the bitterness in check. A great session ale and done very nicely on the beer engine.

Aroma is hoppy. Taste is not quite as strongg as the aroma but still crisp and hoppy.
