Pint on tap at the brewpub. The aroma has a little pine and some PNW C-hops present. Light underlying malt sweetness. This has a pretty classic APA aroma. Light danky hop notes are also teased out. Transparent dark golden body with a small, white head and good lacing. Starts with some metallic character and decent hop flavor. A little toasty in the middle. Finishes with impressive pine, herbal, and earthy bitterness. Not too shabby.

Light golden orange with acreamy white head. Faint hoppy aroma. Grain and citrus hops taste but a bit on the stale side.

On tap at the brewery. Nice mild pale ale. Very hoppy, but not too much. Nicely balanced with a touch of caramel sweetness. medium bodied, golden in color with a small white head. I liked this one.

Limited bottling of beer, usually available only on draft. Nice head. Darker orange body with lots of carbonation when you hold it up to the light. Very fresh hoppy aroma, which carries over into the flavor. Flavor doesnít seem complex so Iím guessing itís a single hop beer. Hops linger for quite some time on the palate. Itís a pale ale that, IMHO, clearly borders on the high end of the hop spectrum, nearing some IPA flavors!!

Pours attractive copper with an ehh shell colored head that persists and leaves substantial lacing. Great balance of light pine hops and caramel malt. Smooth on the palate and very easy drinking.
