Named in honor of the hippie house at Denison University where brewer Greg first started working with hops and malt -- over a wood-burning stove, no less. Homestead is a classic Northwest pale ale, with hop aroma and flavor from Simcoes and Centennials; a hefty dose of Vienna malt helps provide some medium-bodied balance. Designed to be both satisfying and highly drinkable after a long day’s labor. Nice work, you hippie!

Slight haze, light amber. Slight, diacetyl, light bitterness, only the mellowest leafy hop. Bleh.

Draught at Portland Craft, Vancouver
Hazy blond color. Nice dank aroma; the malt flavor is not too deScriptive, as well as the hopping, although gives enough bitterness, it doesn’t show much hop quality, some hop resins.
So and so.

On tap. Pours a clear amber with light head. Aromas of grassy hops and paper. Flavors of dry bitter herbal hops. Nope.

On tap St. Augustine’s, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out light floral minerally notes and some biscuity malt. Flavour is pretty weak, with lots of minerally notes, a touch of soapy hops and biscuity malt. Something seems not quite right here. Very bland and somewhat metallic on the finish. Meh.

Bottle to glass, pours a deep yellow-golden color, light haze, and a modest white head. Nice sheet lacing. The nose is authentic PNW hops and pale malt... I don’t know what more to say. Translates right into the taste. Floral and citrus, a light fruity and a little pine. I’m impressed. Its not over complicated, but its rich at the same time. Reminds me of the first few times I had Mirror Pond... the urge to fill the beer fridge. Well done.

Cool to see another Double Mountain bottle in town.. Picked up at the COOP and enjoyed from my CBC Teku.. Pours slightly hop-hazed dark golden... 2-finger white head dies back pretty quickly leaving great lacing... Nice tropical fruity/citrus hops with a light piney element.. Great hop flavor and aroma... In many parts of the country, this would be considered an IPA, but here in the PNW, this is a great NW Pale Ale... Well made and tastes very fresh.

From a bottle , the pour is a pale yellow with above average c02, lemon peel , and a light body.

Bottle (12oz $4.25): Cloud golden with soapy white head. The description calls this Dank. Not sure what dank tastes like, but not sure I like it. Is it like wet grass? Anyway seems more bitter than most pale ales from start to finish. The finish is slightly metallic.

On tap at OBF. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A sweet citrus nose. Soft pine, citrus, some earthy toasted malts. The Vienna malt really some through. Very drinkable.

IndianaRed (4615) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 30, 2014
On Tap at the River Room, Whole Foods, Boise Another DM pale dingy yellow beer. Thin but dense white head. Nice bright piney hop aroma. Big hoppy biter flavor but dull and blunt. A little soapy. Plenty of IBUs for a LA but not as good on the fresh hop flavor.
