Pour is a bright copper with a huge white head. Aroma is hard to get past the head but a decent hop lingers. Flavor is sweet malts with a hop bitterness. Very smooth and drinkable. You could probably drink put a few of these away in one sitting. csaso (2266) - Missouri, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Bottle - very big foamy head, nice medium amber/red color, good citrus hop aroma, nice hoppy but balanced flavor gregwilsonstl (2466) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Sweet. Pretty refreshing after drinking many hoppy brews. Thin head. Good Pale Ale. This does a very good job of hiding the alochol content behind good flavor. Thanks Ruhlman. Blairgus (4535) - California, USA - MAR 13, 2012
13 Mar 2012, bottle. light orange, clear, steady bubbles, foamy head. nose is toasted grain and pine hops, both soft. med body and faintly fizzy. resiny hops kind of mute the dried toast malt. meh. mjg74 (3093) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAR 10, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2015 Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Deep copper in color. Nose is sweet and fruity. Some breadiness up front along with a bit of hoppy bitterness. Decent grapefruit peel bitterness finishes this brew off.

It poured an orange/amber color with a small white head. The aroma was of some pine, maybe spruce and malts. The flavor was sweet caramel, pines and loads of hops. A very good Northwest Pale Ale. AWMiller (512) - Mansfield, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2012
now this is one wicked good APA!!!! delicious taste, creamy texture and a long-lasting clean sweet(ish) finish and way excellent lacing effects on the glass! alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Kind of a coppery color, clear, very pretty looking with a nice two finger white head and nice lacing.
Smell is fruity, floral, hoppy, touches of pine. Flavor is really great on the fruits, light fruits dominate, mangos, peaches, apricots, pears, apples all come to mind. There’s tons of great hops presence, piney, floral, citrus very nice.
Body is light and finishes slightly bitter, almost like a light IPA, certainly more bold than your average pale ale.
Overall it’s very fine and I plan to drink it again and again! I like a good hop forward pale ale and this one fits the bill. tdcritch (153) - Missouri, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Really good IPA, sweet with a good amount of hops. One of my favorites. Aroma is sweet with a good hop nose. Copper color pour with a good head. Taste is sweet then a nice bitter. ANGRYCPA (50) - - MAR 5, 2012
12 oz bottle, pours a cloudy amber color. Nice floral, hoppy nose which translates well in the mouth. Solid beer!
