This beer bridges east and west with a lane dedicated to riders who aren’t afraid to get dirty. Three kinds of organic caramel malts and a 24 pound whirlpool hop bomb keep things interesting while the wheels go round and round. Cheers to narrow knobbies, kazoos, and more cowbell! 12.5°, 45 IBU

A very satisfiying and enjoyable pale ale. The color is orangish and the head retention is good. Some light caramel and nuttiness in the flavor to help support the bitterness. The aroma is grassy with notes of grapefruit and piney. An everyday pale ale...nice job!

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear orange gold with a medium sized white head. Bright citrus on the nose, a touch of sweetness. Orange tones. Medium bodied, bright pungent grapefruit and pine. Long bitterness, big pungent bitterness, pith and grapefruit with a thick pine backbone.

On draught at Hopworks Urban Brewery. Clear full golden color. Floral, citrus aroma. Taste is sweet, slightly tart citrus with a touch of light malt. Well-balanced and pleasant citrus aftertaste.

Mild, floral hop aroma and taste with clean and refreshing maltiness. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Tap at Hopworks - lightly hazy old - medium body - clean and medium sweet - earthy, piney hops - a bit of a mineral quality - slight herbal, tea-like notes - a little vegetal on the tail end - meh.

Bottle:   Golden, slight dirty haze, large frothy off-white head, sticky lacing, very light carbonation.   Not much of a hop aroma, moreso a barnish funk of a malt aroma.   Slight earth and soil matter.   Noticeable hops on the tongue, still light tho.   Less of an organic bite than I would have thought by the nose, but still noticeable.   Lingering mealy malts, some of that barnish funk.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   A little dry on the backside, powdery, sticks to my tongue and makes me smack my lips.   Decent Pale Ale, but not as juicy/floral/bitter I would have loved. That and the fact that it was a little mealy/funky/barnish/soily sorta of detracted.   I’ll stick with their IPA.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with small white head. Smooth with a hint of hoppy bitterness in the finish, but not overpowering. Just the way I like a good pale ale!

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 4, 2011
At hub with Carla. Pours gold with white foam. Smells sweetly hoppy. Tastes slightly tangy with hints of apricot and a bitter pine flavor.

A rather standard brewpub pale ale. Cudos for the organic label, but put a little more umph in your beer!

Travlr (26069) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Draft at BikeBar. Aroma of grass, taste is similar. Decent body. Nice eample of a proper pale ale.
