Our cult favorite, deep gold American pale ale. Big citrus and floral aromas, malt flavors, and intense hoppy finish.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Amber with a light creamy head and stringy lace. Fresh hop aromas. Bitter, floral, piney with lemon and orange citrus notes. Bitter again in the flavor with citrus, melons perhaps. Malts back it up well. Creamy mouth feel with a bitter hop filled finish

Sampled draught at Steelhead Brewing, Eugene
Copper color, sticky head. Nose of hop resin, something horizon or Amarillo like, pale malt & dry alcohol. Nice plum feeling in the mouth and a clean finish.

Clouded orangey color. Hop spiced, balanced malty grain aroma. Good hoppy flavors, sweetness of tangerine, bitter grapefruit and lemon. Not strongly bitter but good tropical fruit and citrus. A well balanced fruity IPA.

Burlingame. Fruity aroma. Hops really not detectable in the nose. Creamy, off-white head. A little faint visible carbonation. Good lace. Nice peppery body. Discernably hoppier than the Pale ale. Very similar to the White Dog PA, but just hoppier. I also had the cask version but my taste buds were too burnt out to rate it. It was smoother, creamier and good, though I preferred the standard.

Tap@Steelhead. Loved this stuff, Once again really well, made, textbook IPA. Massive sweet lychee flavour. Pine and grapefruit, as is alwasy the case with USIPA’s. Little creatures pale ale kept coming to mind while having this, real tasty stuff.

Pours amber with a small white head. Aroma was slightly hoppy with a citrus edge. Taste was sweet at first then the hops brought on a bitter end with hints of orange peel.
