draft. nice rich aroma, good lace and head, nice clear copper color, smooth taste, crisp hop finish bhensonb (15621) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 10, 2007
Aroma seems floral with underlying citrus. Very nice. Fine amber color, very little head. Starts with malt and berry, not overly strong berry; the hop aroma dominates the flavor, and the hop bitterness carries through to the finish. After the hop wears down, the malt can be detected. This must be balanced. Very good stuff. Palate gets fatigued after about half a bottle, so it starts great, but it wears you out. Even so, it remains a good drink.

Pours deep copper in color w/ a medium sized, semi creamy froth. Lacing is full w/ a dusty canopy. A nice malty aroma. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Texture is soft and smooth. A malty backbone w/ a persistant hopsy bittering from start to finish. Caramel is mild to moderate creating a more leathery flavor profile. Drinks better as it warms. Finishes w/ a lingering bittering component. Overall: a solid brew. Highly recommended. thedm (6309) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 4, 2007
This draft brew from the brew pub poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were and left behind a transparent softly carbonated golden brown colored body and a fair lacing. The nice aroma was hoppy and malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt hops and mild caramel. Delicious and one with a fair amount of caramel malts that I would certainly buy again.

On-tap at Outback. Awfully deep amber with a clear body and soft white head. Nice grainy, pale malt backbone with a mild hop build. arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Interesting orange color which was much darker than I expected for a pale ale. Almost no head on this beer except for a few white bubbles, I kept trying a hard pour but nada. Smell is a little bready and some slight sweetness in the background. The taste has a slight bit of citrus and a slight bit of hoppiness. Well balanced with a bready malt taste.

12 oz can, gift by luttonm. Not sure if he thought the gift was him giving the can, or me taking the can off his hands. Either way, I got a beer in my hand, I’m happy. A golden, hazy pour with a full foam cloud cover head. Juicy and hoppy, bright aroma. Flavor is creamy, a bit juicy, solid hop profile. No real bitterness noticeable througout. Drinks easy. Always nice to see a beer that’s been around since years before I was, and still on the shelves today. A good beer to keep a few ice cold, and enjoy, while taking in some ball games. Seems fitting anyway. Brewsmith (148) - Torrance, California, USA - AUG 9, 2010
On tap at the brewery 8-4-10. Pours a hazy deep gold color with a big hop nose, typical pacific NW hops - citrusy, grapefruit. Clean malt profile with a big bitter backbone and big hop aroma. Lighter body makes the hops really stick out, maybe a little too much. Balanced definitely toward the bitter side. Dry finish without much sweetness. blackisle (2761) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2013
