Bottle pours copper with foamy white head. Spruce, floral, caramel. Low bitterness and moderate sweetness. Medium bodied. Not a whole lot of flavor. I donít know if I had a bad bottle or what, but I was disappointed with this.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange color with a small head. Hoppy aroma of orange, grapefruit, and flowers. Taste has a nice crisp bitterness, fresh hop flowery flavor, and a little malt to hold it together. A great example of an American pale ale. Reminds me a lot of Sierra Nevada's.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle into pint glass. Pours a nice hazy amber color with thick frothy head that retains wells. Pine, honey, and floral aromas fill the nose. Very outdoorsy smelling and lovely. A flavorful brew with hoppy pine, some malty caramel, honey, and hay. Refreshing. Mouthfeel is good with a light body, medium carbonation, with a slight bitterness on the palate. A well balanced beer that's easily sessionable.

Who designed the bottle, Ralph Lauren ? LOL.
12 oz bottle.
They do well with those "Pacific Northwest Cascades" hops that firm a bitterness and delightfully floral aroma.
Piney and grassy aroma that is not too strong.. A red /brown/orange appearance snow white head some lacing..taste is well balanced, a bit sour but with an exact maltiness to balance it..somehow both hoppiness and maltiness seem muted though..light mouthfeel and a slight tingle on the palate. Wonderful and a "beefy" pale ale that is not at all watery.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear light burnished gold; constant head coating and full lacing. Taste begins with a mild, sweet caramel; American hops slam into the sweet without dislodging it. Nicely done, very drinkable, sessionable, recommended.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a shaker glass from a 12 ounce bottle best before 5-23-2012.
A: Slightly hazy amber with a decent sized creamy white head.
S: Slightly sweet tea aroma, some bready malts. A bit boring.
T: Decent flavor hints of tea and toasted bread with a slightly floral hop bitterness. Rather bland, semi-sweet.
M: Medium body with fizzy carbonation gives this a bready mouthfeel.
O: Not a fan of this one, itís a bit bland for my liking. I see no reason to buy this over more flavorful options.
