Draft pour at the brewery. Pours an oily copper color with a lasting head. Grassy hops aroma. Flavor is pretty grassy as well, with some bitter hop finish. Pretty standard pale, but tasty overall. I’ll take this over a lot of competition. gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 13, 2010
On tap at the brewery. Pours pinky orange with minimal head. Earthy hop aroma with some pine. Taste, after initial pine flavor, is primarily bitter grapefruit peel that lingers and lingers. Not bad but it doesn’t seem like a pale to me. BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2010

Hazy amber color with compact head. The hopping is quite fruity (aroma), the malt flavor is lean, the final is bitter, with some resins and not enough fruits. Tastes old.
Nice but simple.
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear amber with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is grass and citrus. Medium body, pine, citrus, bitter finish, good.
