COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Terminal Gravity Pale Ale is big enough to be most breweries' flagship IPA. An earthy hop aroma from English Kent Goldings hops punctuates a rich toasty malt nose with plum undertones. An expansive malt palate is backed by herbal hop flavor, then finishes fruity, creamy and bitter. There's a lot going on in this beer. OG: 1.059 FG: 1.015 IBU: 52

Can:   Amberish, slight haze, moderate foamy white head, nice lacing.   Very pale hop nose, moreso an earthy garage like malt base.   Weird, just smells like a damn car garage that people work on cars.   Yeah, minor hops up front, grainy backside.   Has more sweetness than I expected, and less hop umph.   Certainly a paler Pale Ale.   Luckily not so garage like on the tongue.   Not bad overall.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Pretty smooth, and the sweetness balances it out.   Worth a try in my book.

Tap at 16 Tons. Moderate brown in color with light carbonation and a small head. Smells of biscuity malts and floral hops, while the taste throws in some caramel. Very much a British style Pale Ale, but I found it to be fairly tasty despite that not usually being my thing.

Bottle... Poured deep bed with a thin head. A mild pale with forward malt tones and low hop resins and bitterness. Some yeast esters, light fruits, malt sweetness and a mild grassy, hop floralness.

On tap at Rose and Rainfrop after the 06 OR Brewerís Festival. I was told it was the only keg in town... pretty special stuff. I loved it. Iím surprised they donít regularly brew/bottle this. It made such a profound impression on me that I rank it as one of my top beers ever.

On tap at the Oregon Brewers Festival 04. Pours a darker amber with a small white head. Very strong hopped aroma, kinda floral/citrus. Taste starts slightly malty and ends wit a strong bitterness. Very well balanced and smooth, but maybe a bit too hoppy for a pale ale, but Iím not complaining since i love hops. I wish i could get Terminal Gravity brews more often, then never let me down.
