12oz bottle. Light amber with small head. Fresh c hop aroma. Taste is solid malts with light bitterness. Refreshing. skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Good stuff. Pours almost a deep golden brown with orange hints. Very light aroma mainly consisting of fairly sweet malts. Flavor is inviting, and gets right into the pale aspect of things right away. Almost a burnt hop flavor exists, but its good, and draws you back for more. VERY piney - the body, the finish, the flavor. Burnt pine...yes, and then sour pine towards the finish that lingers (I’m noticing they’re good at finishes here). Good stuff, wonder how it is bottled.

Ice Harbor Brewing – Kennewick, WA Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 5, 2002
Aroma: Hoppy nose with a good malt backing.
Appearance: Amber brown in color, clear with a thin head.
Flavor: Nice malt flavor with a big hops finish.
Palate: Dry with a smooth hoppy finish.
Overall: A very good Autumn ale.
Re-Rate 06/05/02: Nice deep amber color, the head frothy and beige, the nose lightly floral, huge 'Hits' of malt. Front is sweet, the top is light, big hop finish, dry, acidic, and much more drinkable than their 'Red'. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2001
Color- rust, copper. Head- medium retention, good lace.
Aroma- bready, appetizing.
Heavy hops up front. Bready in the middle. Sweet finish. spikester (606) - Salem, Oregon, USA - OCT 2, 2008
From a growler filled today. Amber color with a modest head and lacings. Floral, fruity aroma. Taste is bitter orange with a malt profile that barely supports the hops. Hops are bitter, somewhat piney, and quite fresh tasting. Some earthiness in the palate. Decent APA, very drinkable.
