COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is another English style, though with another American twist. Also an original flagship brew; this is brewed to be our "introduction to micros" for our customers. The Pinnacle Peak Pale Ale is a light bodied, mildly hoppy ale brewed with a 2-row malted barley and a special German malted barley. Palisade and Citra hops are used to provide the balanced palate. This is another in-house favorite session beer and very friendly at 4.4% ABV and 20 IBUs.

Draft pour, tasted at Harmon, Tacoma. Clean golden pour with a foam ring head. Soft aroma, with sweet grain, and hops. Cool flavor, a refreshing pale. An excellent beer for a session. Where is this when the baseball season is going? Enjoyable for sure.

Harmon Tap Room, Tacoma. Thin foam, bright pale orange gold. Clean, bitter fruity pale ale. Pretty classic profile. A touch sweet, rather fruity malts. Pale aroma. Solid.

Draught at the brewpub
Golden color, just hazy, with creamy head. Now, this is a nice surprise; there is a good jib with the malt, that appears to be also a bit biscuity, delicate aroma of quality hops, fairly bitter, with a good amount of hop resins in the final.
Well brewed.

Keg at Harmon Taproom, Tacoma, travel 6,000 miles for a golden fucken blonde - hurrah !!! 07/11/14. Clear golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is pale malt, straw, orange, citric vibes. Taste comprises much the same, pretty ho - hum, you’re not going to match the best examples of this style unless you produce them via cask conditioning, more orange, light vanilla, melon, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close, light hop bitterness. Drinkable but ultimately dull !

Draft - Nice grapefruit and a bit of pine. Clear gold with a decent white head. Earthy battering hops, pale malts and a clean finish. Basic, but decent.

Hazy amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is a little bit fruity with some light caramelly malt flavour backed by a touch of citrus. Iced tea ish but not cloying. Hops are there but the bitterness is fairly muted. Leans to sweet. A little bit of brown sugar flavour on the back.

Mount Rainier National Park - on tap at the Inn. Murky medium gold pour, soft white head, good lacing. Aroma has a nice floral touch to it. Flavor is lemon accented with a touch of grapefruit, nice subtle bitterness. Crisp, clean mouthfeel. Overall, very refreshing.

Slightly hazy golden color, good creamy white head, lace. Grapefruity nettles aroma from Citra. This one has also good body for ABV. Flavor has pale malts, sweetish pineapple, pine and citrus. Lots of flavors in this beer. Citra is not dominating in the flavor, Palisade brings up some piney notes I believe.
