3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice copper color. Some pearly white head. Aroma is very malty for a pale ale. Flavor has a nice grassy note to it, with a backbone of caramel hops. There is a significant alcohol flavor as well, not unpleasant. The hops kind of play second fiddle, but that’s fine, because it’s a very drinkable beer.

Another Full Sail beer I got in a trade with Wasatch. Thanks John!
It pours from 12oz bottle a clear gold with a nice 1 finger head of foam.
The smell is hoppy but not overly so. Just about right for the style.
The taste right off the bat is a nice balance between some good bitter(grassy) hoppiness and malty sweetness. Yum. Very quaffable as well. Go figure.
A few more sips in and I notice the hop character does have some citrus and it works really well along side the grass and both work really well with the malt. Dang, this is a tasty brew and very drinkable. It has a medium mouthfeel and carbonation and it finishes both slightly sweet and slightly bitter...again with the balance!
I really liked this APA and I think it's one of the better examples of the style that I've tried. I recommend it.
Full sail poured a nice amber body with plenty of carbonation that left ok lace, thin off white head. Mouthfeel was thin and watery, not much aroma to speak of. Flavor of hops, but it was kind of bland, however the finish was nice. It was o.k. but i probably wont purchase it again.

Uma bela apresentação: dourada, translúcida, com pequena formação de espuma, mas que dura até o final. O aroma cítrico, com algumas notas de caramelo e malte é meio genérico e sem personalidade, mas melhora muito na boca: o malte fica mais acentuado e se equilibra bem com o final cítrico, um pouco picante e amargo. Corpo mediano, mas que se sustenta bem. Refrescante, saborosa, uma boa cerveja airrick2003 (872) - Louisiana, USA - DEC 17, 2015
Appearance: pours with a medium off white head, the beer is an average very clear gold color
Aroma: strong flowers, citrus, pine,
Taste: very nice hop flavors of flowers, light pine, citrus, has a light pale malt, light sweetness too
Palate: average carbonation, medium mouthfeel, mild aftertaste
Overall: this is delicious, ranks up there with southern tier live for a very hoppy pale ale, lots of floral and citrus notes, this one hides it's very high for a pale ale abv well

Nice standard pale ale. Good. Has a hoppy aroma of Oregon pine trees. Flavor of mild malts and more pine and medium bitterness.

Pours an amber color with a medium white head that left some lacing around the glass. The aroma is caramel, floral hops, and some sweet caramel. The taste is very similar with a mild hop kick. This is a good beer! slowrunner77 (12998) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
"better than average hoppy, refreshing pale ale, but nothing that REALLY stands out within the style. a good enough beer if it’s on sale, but nothing great." Sarlacc83 (2404) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 5, 2014

A: Deep copper with a 1/2" white head. Lacing.
N: Barley and biscuit. Hops lend a spruce and peppercorn element. Some esters and banana. Touch of citrus.
T: A larger than expected hop bitterness. Malt sweetness.
M: Tickling carb and medium body. Creamy.
O: This is far better than expected. Shows its PNW origins; I would drink this time and time again. It hits the spot; seems like it’d be right on style if compared to others in the category.
Orange golden colour with a fine white head. Nice lacing. Floral hoppy nose. Medium malty base in the flavour, with lots of hoppy citrus notes. Ok body and a pleasant carbonation. A fine and tasty brew. rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 23, 2014
