We took our time to get the finely-tuned balance of Persnickety Pale just right. The clean orange-peel character – brought on by Yakima Valley Chinook, Cascade and Centennial hops – balances perfectly with a soft caramel malt profile, built entirely from locally malted Washington grain.
Malts: Base Malt, Crystals, Munich, Vienna, Carapils
Hop varieties: Centenniel, Cascade, Chinook, Galena

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.

22 oz Bottle. Pours an amberish brown with light off-white head. Aroma of herbal hops. Taste is of roasted malts with a hint of coffee. Slight bitterness in the finish. Not bad, but not amazing.

This is a crisp pale ale with a smooth hoppiness. Golden amber in color with a pleasant aroma.

In a can. Session beer with a moderate amount of hops but not something that's overly complex.

Could not control the pour on this beer. The head was like ice cream and the smallest addition to the glass caused it ti expand exponentially. The carbonation effected every aspect of the experience. Beer was cloudy, expected to see a yeast layer on the bottom but there was none. Fail.
