We took our time to get the finely-tuned balance of Persnickety Pale just right. The clean orange-peel character Ė brought on by Yakima Valley Chinook, Cascade and Centennial hops Ė balances perfectly with a soft caramel malt profile, built entirely from locally malted Washington grain.

Beerdrinker79 (2034) - Idaho, USA - MAR 3, 2012
12 oz. shrink wrapped can- Pours slightly hazy orange with a one finger head that reduces to a soapy looking blanket. The aroma is hops, soap, maybe a little fruity. The taste is sweet almost candylike, some hops, not in your face at all, very sessionable. Body is medium to almost light, carbonation is soft. Overall not a masterpiece, but it is very drinkable, I enjoyed it.

poisoneddwarf (2285) - Coeur dí Alene, Idaho, USA - FEB 4, 2012
12 oz can. Pours hazy orange-copper with noticeable sediment. Has a large cream rocky head that lasts, leaving lace. Aroma is citrus rind, citrus powder drink, grain. Taste is sweet, sour and bitter all rolled into one. Tastes a little worty, some metal, blood. Body is a little thin, carbonation average. A flawed but drinkable APA.

reebtogi (5686) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 30, 2011
650ml bottle listed at 5.7%ABV poured a golden-orange color with a modest white head and some fine lacing. Aroma is mostly citrus with some light toasted malts. Taste is light malty sweetness with a bold citrusy hop finish, mostly grapefruit. Medium body and nice carbonation with a pleasing mouthfeel. This is a full flavoured pale ale that is recommended for a pleasing tasting experience.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Orange brick like color with beige like frothy head. Light caramel malt aroma. Medium bodied with malt notes of nuts and dark chocolate that do battle with strong hop flavors that take over in the long lasting astringent finish.

DuffMan (9543) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 10, 2011
Bottle. Medium orange amber, sediment delivers a bolus of small particles that stay in suspension. Chunky white head that laces decently. Aroma is pretty muted actually, even after sufficient air time: soapy and grassy notes mix with papery caramel. Caramel base, some light pine and grapefruit (quite light), dry bitter finish ending on a boxboard note.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - AUG 12, 2011
Hazy amber orange, thick beiege head. Aroma is pretty heavy with sweet malts, dark fruit, pine. Taste is more dank and bitter than the aroma lead me to believe and most APAís in general. Good malt balance.

bhensonb (14094) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 27, 2011
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours Hazy amber with a transient beige head. Aroma of sweet caramel with some herbal/pine. Near full bodied. Flavor is caramel, with some resin and arguably grapefruit rind. Itís starting sweet and ending balanced. A strange and confusing situation. In some respects itís like a thin barley wine with lots of hop. It drinks quite well.
