COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich, Northwest-style Pale Ale is a rare feat of balance: unfiltered, dry-hopped to 40 IBUs, and deliciously sessionable. Groove on this two-time Great American Beer Festival® Gold Medal winner (2001 and 2002 Bitter Category). It really smoothes out the bumps.

Ungstrup (37934) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2005
An unclear orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is lovely with notes of Cascade hops and grapefruit. The flavor is malty with quite a lot of grapefruit, leading to a dry end. But the body is thin - no wonder when You check the ABV.

Draft. Hazy amber color, medium white head. Aroma of citrus and light fruit. Taste is white bread and grapefruit. Decent.

Bottled. Cloudy dark amber. Orange aroma, Sweet and bold, medium bodied. Loads of citric, aromatic hops. Medium bitterness. All about aroma hops.

Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Hazy, pale amber with a creamy, white head. Incredibly lovely nose full of aroma hops. Very light - almost watery - body. Slightly sweetish malt and a short, dry finish with a touch of bitterness. 041105

Bottle at the Freakin’ Frog, Las Vegas
Amber color. Moderate hoppy aroma. It’s reasonably hoppy, but the body weakness is too evident; such a beer would benefit from a different hop, fruity for example. Too simple.

harrisoni (18823) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2005
Cask at GBBF 2005 Copper orange colour. Some tea on aroma but nice green hop nose with some nettle. Great bitterness on the end. Good pale ale.

mcberko (18082) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2016
On tap at Squatters, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out light piney hops and dry biscuity malt. Flavour is well-balanced, with a nice piney hop quality and dry biscuity malt. Bland and lifeless, but it’s okay.

yngwie (17078) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2014
Can. It’s an unclear, golden-orange beer with a finger-thick off-white head. The aroma has hop pellets, pine cones, orange zest and some hints of pale wort. Piney and lightly orange peel-ish flavor with malt notes and a decent bitterness. Medium to full-bodied, dry and nicely carbonated. Lasting finish. A bit too much on the hop pellet side this one, but nice anyway. Impressive body for a beer this weak. Quenching. 140613

3.3
brokensail (16486) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 20, 2015
On tap @ Wasatch Sugarhouse. Sort of hazed golden pour with white foam. A bit of blueberry and a whole lot of grassy hops. Somewhat pithy, too. Mild malt flavor and sweetness. Pretty good bready character, but the grassiness is a little too much.

3.8
bhensonb (15353) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Nice piny hop aroma - more like an IPA than a pale. Beautiful apricot color with a frothy white head. It’s unfiltered, and maybe it’s unpasteurized? Starts a little thin with that nice hop, the malt struggling to be noticed. It’s really very nice. At 4% we’re talking session IPA. There should be more like this. Every sips a pleasure of hoppy aroma and light bitter taste.
