This is a solid beer. However, it has a bit of a creamy taste to it. Not my favorite... but maybe because I always expect it to taste more like an IPA

Hazy dark orange colour, small white head. Aroma of citrus, malt, fruits, piny hops. Dry taste with mildly bitter hoppy finish. Nice ale.

sholbert (38) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 22, 2017
Light amber pour, nice head and lacing. Not much nose at all. What’s there is stale biscuit, almost tinny. Flavor shows some hip character, but it fades quickly. Bit of herb, grassy, then bland malt. Slick finish with nothing else.

Heidbummer (518) - SCOTLAND - FEB 17, 2017
Pint at Shuckers. Pours light amber, rapidly disappearing white head. Soft carbonation. It’s light generally. Crisp, dry, hints of hops and citrus but it’s all a little lightweight for me. Quaffable mind.

Capa (3135) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Hazy copper with a white head. Light citrus and toasted malt profile. Medium bodied. Simple but tasty.

Baliboo (11) - THAILAND - NOV 25, 2016
Tap at Cooper’s, Seattle. Cloudy golden. Aroma is hoppy, citrusy. Flavor is light sweetness, mildly caramel and malt. Medium bodied. Okay one.

StevieT (1936) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 24, 2016
On tap at Von’s Seattle. Crisp finish, fruity but not overly hopped, easy to drink this is a well made beer.

fiery_1 (795) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2016
Draught pour @ SeaTac Seattle Taproom. Pours a cloudy golden orange. Nose is... well bland? Flavour is pretty much the same, there really isn’t much here but a slight hoppyness.

JorgeLee (2015) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2016
On tap in Cactus in Seattle. Looked like a pale ale, perhaps deeper in colour than many pale ales in the region. Rather wishy washy unfortunately, lacking definition in malt or hops and just a bit bland. Perfectly drinkable and pleasant but felt like it has been left behind by more modern pale ale recipes.

scarletfire65 (1423) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2016
Draft at The Irishmen in Everett Wa. A non description but we’ll made and tasty pale ale. The grain bill is savory with a slight toastiness. Slight piney hops. Not bad.

This is a well balanced pale ale. It is slightly darker and and has a stronger malty flavor than most Northwest pales. The hops are not overbearing, making this beer a good choice when sharing a pitcher with friends.
