3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The pour was a crystal clear sparkling light to medium amber with a slight yellow hue and a head that was average sized (1-2 finger), fizzy and white and had fair lacing.
The aroma was kind of mild of a grain malt, a citrus hop and a musty scented yeast with a hint of caramel and grapefruit.
The taste was just a tad sweet and acidic with a mild caramel note at first and then became a little bitterer and a touch hoppy with a definite note of citrus (grapefruit) at the end. The flavor hung around for a little while after the swallow leaving a bit of bitterness to linger on.
Mouthfeel was a shade or two above light in body and dry but also watery in texture with a nice lively carbonation.
Overall a decent Pale Ale, one that goes down easy and finishes nice...

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. Originally rated on 10/10/2008.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

"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."

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
