Location: 12 oz bottle from Central Market, 8/26/13
nbmeyers (2) - Arizona, USA - AUG 23, 2013 does not count
Aroma: The nose of this one is pretty hoppy, with some pine/grass, citrus, and a bit of spice
Appearance: It pours an orange color with a small foam of off-white head and some spotty lace
Flavor: The flavor is dry and bitter up-front and lightly sweet, the bitterness fades in the finish
Palate: The body is medium, it has some stickiness, plus carbonation, and a shortish duration
This is a more than solid APA, that I may even have given a higher score, except the hop flavor just doesn’t sustain through the whole palate. Other than the brevity of the flavor, I don’t have many complaints. Nice stuff.
Perfect example of an APA. Not super bitter, well rounded, hoppy and smooth with a little sweetness. All this from the bottle when you need to get Sierra Nevada in a can to come even close to its balance. crajun (1273) - , Texas, USA - AUG 17, 2013

Bottle:   Dark orangish straw, some haze, thin to moderate frothy white head, little lacing.   Pale hop nose, a little stale, some wet blanket notes.   Faint hoppiness on the tongue, a touch grainy, with some wet
blanket bringing up the backside.   Not as sharp as their normal Pale Ale.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft hops, a little grainy, minor earth, and a stale aspect that I cannot shake.   Not as bright as their
standard Pale, which was only fair.   Not really a fan.   Not bright, like most Alaskan beers.   Perhaps I had my hopes too high? ACHops (1688) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2013
On tap on the WSF Walla Walla, headed to Bremerton. Pours slightly cloudy pale orange copper with medium white head. Aroma is light caramel malt and thin floral hops. Taste is faintly sweet pale malt that finishes earthy. Nice mild bitter finish with fresh citrus and floral notes from the hops. Very nice for a pale, the fresh hops really distinguish this one.

12 oz. bottle that I picked up in Jackson, WY during my recent visit to Yellowstone. Pours a hazy golden amber with a moderate off-white head. Very pleasant aroma that has ample citrus hops along with some pale malt. The flavor is similar although not as fruity as the aroma. Moderate hops bitterness at the finish. On the lighter side of medium bodied. No problems. VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
355 ml bottle. Pours a very thinly veiled, yet otherwise clear pale golden amber with a resilient, thin white head. Aroma is toasted malts. Flavor is cereals, hints of fruits, malty, toasty. Finish is a nice shot of citrus, mostly grapefruit and lemon, earthy notes. Light body, watery mouthfeel, average carbonation. Fine APA. Fantomasus (291) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Pours a hazy amber with a one inch white head. Appearance would be rated higher but there is something oily about it that looks unappetizing. Aroma is pleasant but uneventful: light caramel, light citrus, no yeast (or at least very hard to describe). Taste is fairly balanced with a nod towards sour/biter. Medium body with an unpleasant thin, oily feel. Unwelcome astringent, bitter finish. Will not buy again. bconch (471) - - JUL 31, 2013
Draft in Laramie. Fruity citrus nose. Taste is same with nice carbonation. Good, dry apa finish. Refreshing. jkwood04 (5472) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 30, 2013
On tap in a pilsner glass. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops plus a nice pale maltiness. Flavor the same with a great hop and malt balance. Average texture. A good pale ale.
