Really good pale, nice hop kick but very clean aftertaste. One of their standard taps, a good thing! Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 3, 2012
On tap at The Green Frog. Solid pale ale with tons of flavor; pushes into the IPA realm. Crisp and snappy texture. Juicy hops. Floral aromas. Moderate bitterness. Dry finish. Very sessionable and tasty. ericsondr (48) - Camano Island, Alabama, USA - MAR 11, 2010
Rich foamy head with a light amber color. Heavy malt flavor. Dissapates fairly cleanly but leaves a nice coating of malt behind.

Combo rating between me and my wife. So I would have a tick down. Nice amber hue with odd white head. Great lacing too. Nose is spicy hops and quite generous for a pale ale. Flapcor has an initial burst of hops but not heavy. Good balance of bready malt. Really nice for a standard pale. bitbucket (2166) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 3, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear copper with a lacy white head. Sweet citrus and pine nose. Light toffee and citrus taste with a lingering resinous finish. I have a hard time seeing the IBUs being as low as 37? Another nicely sessionable beer from Black Raven.

Draft at the brewpubs.
Nice strong pawn pale aroma, and then maybe the most aggressive hop edge I’ve ever en in an APA. Tom’s adjective garlicky is ingenious. I have never thought to call a beer this before, but this one is actually garlicky. Pretty darn session able, nice beer. 22415brewery (379) - Washington, USA - OCT 25, 2009
Clean, clear, light-amber. A fine northwest pale ale featuring up-front citrusy-piney hops. Very similar aroma and flavor qualities to their IPA when drank side by side, the "little brother". Slightly bigger malt backbone than most pale ales, which is quite pleasing. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - FEB 8, 2010
draft at the brewery. pours a crystal clear dark amber with a loose and slightly sudsy grayish head. toasty, garlicky nose. creamy medium body with lively carb. toast, browned garlic, biscuit, and a little bit of cooked caramel on the mid palate. long toasty finish.
