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.

Ungstrup (29665) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2005
An unclear orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is lovely with notes of Cascade hops and grapefruit. The flavor is malty with quite a lot of grapefruit, leading to a dry end. But the body is thin - no wonder when You check the ABV.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Hazy, pale amber with a creamy, white head. Incredibly lovely nose full of aroma hops. Very light - almost watery - body. Slightly sweetish malt and a short, dry finish with a touch of bitterness. 041105

Bottled. Cloudy dark amber. Orange aroma, Sweet and bold, medium bodied. Loads of citric, aromatic hops. Medium bitterness. All about aroma hops.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2008
Bottle at the Freakin’ Frog, Las Vegas
Amber color. Moderate hoppy aroma. It’s reasonably hoppy, but the body weakness is too evident; such a beer would benefit from a different hop, fruity for example. Too simple.

harrisoni (14020) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2005
Cask at GBBF 2005 Copper orange colour. Some tea on aroma but nice green hop nose with some nettle. Great bitterness on the end. Good pale ale.

bhensonb (11378) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Nice piny hop aroma - more like an IPA than a pale. Beautiful apricot color with a frothy white head. It’s unfiltered, and maybe it’s unpasteurized? Starts a little thin with that nice hop, the malt struggling to be noticed. It’s really very nice. At 4% we’re talking session IPA. There should be more like this. Every sips a pleasure of hoppy aroma and light bitter taste.

on tap-pours a white head and hazy yellow/gold color. Aroma is citrus hops (cascade). Taste is citrus hops (cascade)-slight bitter, faint malt. OK/mild carbonation.
