I enjoyed this pale more than several others. I felt that the hops while dominating were not overwhelming and too bitter. I would enjoy a session with this brew if I lived in the NW.

spikester (606) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Cloudy amber bottle pour, thin white head, minimal lacings. Slighty sweet caramel aroma. Taste is full ale with bitter hops and sweet toasted malt. Not over the top flavors. Just a nice balance with a slight grapefruit bitterness. Good mouthfeel. Would be a good session APA. Well recommended.

jsnicholas (591) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle (12oz $1.30) Hazy golden brown with two finger head that fades. Smell citrus. Tastes bready with the hops kicking in little in the end with a slight metal taste,

SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2004
Floral notes with citrus. Typical of Cascade hops and its northwest cousins. Prefect malt balance clean flavor some may miss the yeasty flavors that many other pale ales have

Falconseye8 (542) - Evans, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2004
Very nice, hoppy, easy drinking APA. Good flavor, not overly citrusy or yeasty or malty but it sure glides down the hatch well. Nice effort for my first Hale’s product

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 20, 2001
This beer defines the pale ale style. More assertive and bold than English pales, but not wildly over-hopped like many West Coast ales, this Seattle brew is perhaps the world’s best balanced beer. Incredibly drinkable and smooth. One of my top ten, and the beer that really got me started on craft beer. The ultimate session beer.

benpickens (498) - Camarillo, California, USA - AUG 5, 2006
Pours with a small white frothy head. Very aromatic with biscuity, flowerlike, aromas. The hops dominates the malt and there is a very bitter hops finish.

Hanuta06 (469) - Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Serving: from tap at Vostok Dumpling House. Aroma: heavy, floral hops. Appearance: average-sized, creamy, off-white, initial head with very good lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Cloudy, dark-amber body. Taste: lightly bitter initial flavor and moderately sour, grapefruit finish with average duration. Palate: medium body with oily texture and soft carbonation. Overall: excellent. Great aroma, interesting taste.

zombywoof (466) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Moderate aroma of citrus-more orange than grapefruit with a hint of piney hop. Medium bitterness with some resiny spruce hops. Good but nothing really special.
