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.

Bronstein (175) - Göttingen, - JUN 30, 2003
Amber color, hoppy aroma. Dry hoppy flavor with a strange special "pine" smack. Not bad. Probably little alcohol(Utah) and for that much body.

George999 (104) - Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Lightly hoped aromas, nice head on a cloudy Amber to blond color, taste is an ale with hops pleasantly pronounced but not overpowering, a little skunky hops used, but overall a great balanced ale, great airport find

bottle from Whole Foods park city. pours orange with no head. doesn’t leave any lacing. not much on the nose. a bit of hop bitterness on the finish but not particularly interesting. dries out the mouth a bit. not really feeling this one at all.

slowrunner77 (6031) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 26, 2014
a bit thin and light due to the 4% law/rule/whateverthehellitis, but the floral and piney hop presence is really niec, especially in the aroma, and theres enough sweet light malt to back it up. could be better, but as it is, not too shabby."

This beer was pretty bland and forgettable. Slight hop presence with some malt sweetness. Thin bodied. Eh

Had in Utah at Neil Diamond cover band concert. Pours cloudy amber. Somewhat fruity nose. Bready, citrus taste - touch of bitterness. Not bad. Better than the cover band. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dlihcsnatas (328) - Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Amber brew with small head that faded fast. At first pour it smelled of pine but after it sat in the glass a little bit it had more of a fruit aroma. Taste was fairly balanced with the hops not being as strong as I had expected from the smell. Very thin watery brew that doesn’t offer anything for body or mouth feel. While nice aroma and decent flavor overall I have to say it is a flop due to being too thin.

Bottle from Guess Who? Bentonville. Light amber with a small head. The nose is hot cantaloupe and pear. PNW hops and sea salt. Some tropical guava. Less vivid flavor. Some pear and apple. Biscuit. Light body, soft carbonation. Decent.
