COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made with classic Pacific Northwest Cascade, Centennial, Mt. Hood in the boil and dry hopped with more Cascade hops. Cascade aroma dominates the nose, so be sure to sniff it like a wine snob. Plenty of ultra premium Maris Otter malt and three specialty malts give the beer a nice smooth sailing biscuit like aroma and body, some sweetness, well balanced against 5.8% alcohol by volume.

mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Quite enjoyable and flavorful. Two demerits. First, Way too high ABV for this style. Second, I seem to be detecting a slight alcohol burn.

3.3
ADfan (877) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Poured from a bomber it a amber color. Aroma of pine and resin. The taste has a grainy flavor with some citrus and more resin. Pretty good beer.

3.3
RABinCO (1707) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Draft sample at the brewery. Gold/light copper pour. Sweet, grassy aroma. Taste is bitter up front. Hints of pine and tropical fruits. Nice slight roast malt balance.

3.4
minihame2 (765) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Brown, hazy body and a white head. Faint aroma with hops and pine notes. Watery mouthfeel, not a lot of carbonation. Taste is also a bit weak with a little bit of bitterness in the end. It’s an easy beer and very drinkable.

3.5
Dogbrick (14000) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Sample at the tap room in Denver (as RiNo Pale Ale). The beer pours a slightly hazy orange-gold color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of floral hops, citrus and bready malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.3
Oakes (19013) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
Hazy amber, lively, bubbly head. Balanced, nice bitterness and toasty malts. Ok stuff, but not bright.

3.4
sturmthis (1195) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2014
22oz bottle. Orange color with thin white head. Slight grapefruit aroma. Biscuity and earthy taste. A very solid beer.

fiulijn (21461) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Courtesy of Josh, as Epic RiNo Pale Ale
Beautiful copper color, hazy, with medium head. Nice grainy malt aroma. Dry and smooth mouthfeel; simple profile, just a bit of caramel; ordinary bitterness, with light vegetables and a metallic feeling.

3.9
Caytinator (1005) - Waco, Texas, USA - MAY 18, 2014
5oz taster at the brewery. Neon opaque copper color, good lacing, good head, appetizing as hell. Good description, it’s hop-forward, very floral, a little grassy/farmy beer--easy-drinking, not very hoppy, no severe bitterness. Get some!

2.7
CloakedDagger (2870) - - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle 65 cl. Comes as "RiNo Pale Ale". Pours amber with a slight haze and a lacing, off-white head. Very biscuity malt aroma with hardly any hops coming through. Medium body, biscuity crystal malts, some subtle bitterness but honestly not much going on here. Inoffensive though. 090514
