On tap at the brewpub; was a little skeptical based on its claim of being in the style of Northwest. However, it did not disappoint. Poured an orange color; didn’t make notes of the head. Aroma was citrus and fruity; flavor was similar with only a moderate bitter bite at the end. However, the hop flavor was spot on; good for the style.

Tap at Brewery. Good aroma of sweet citrus and floral aroma also. Orange body color with decent head. Good cirus orange flavor medium bodied beer with a mild bitter on the finish. Good brew while the bartender was packing up couple of bottles and growler for me. kidmartinek (5001) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2008
Pale orangish yellow, nice foam top, exhibits good carbonation. Very sweet, fruity aroma. Bitter hop taste, cascades are nice. Dry mouthfeel, small bite and medium-heavy finish. Superb lacing. mmmbeer (1428) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Sampler at NXNW- very small off white head, cloudy hazen amber appearance, aroma of hops and, for some reason, light evergreen trees. Hits the mouth with a medium body, the malt is in near perfect balance with the hops, finish is good and strong. My favorite of the evening. jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2007

Decent aroma with a light flavor. One of the better cabonations in the North by Northwast beers. I would have again! lb4lb (2629) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 28, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2008 Pours light golden, with very little head. Aroma is a nice piney hop flavor with maybe some cedar too. I really liked the fresh, woodsy smell of this one. Taste was of some mild hop bitterness, and a good balanced malt behind it. Overall a slightly sweet pale ale that is very drinkable. I liked it a lot and ordered a pint after having it in the sampler. My favorite of the NXNW beers so far. churchill00 (154) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2007
On cask at NXNW. Copper with thin white head. Nose of citrus, slightly floral aroma. Fair amount of roasted nut flavor. Enjoyable.

Draught at the brewpubscraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Hazy golden color with a nice lace. Nice hoppy aroma, a bit fruity (Cascade, light grapefruit) . Average strength, with some malt (not enough) and a good clean hoppy line (Cascade, a bit fruity, with some hop resins).
Draft - Orange, creamy white head. Floral, citrus, and pine nose throughout. Hopped up flavors that receive a nice helping of caramel sweetness for balance. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry, semi-bitter finish. Decent...
