On tap at the brewery. Clear golden / light orange coloured pour with a lasting thin white head. Aroma is subdued, pale grains. Light pine hop. Flavour is composed of very dry light grains, faint pine, some carbonic acid,. Palate is light. Some sweetness, highly carbonated. Drying carbonic acid bite in the finish. Lacks flavour.

"well rounded stout that borders on an american imperial. flavorful and aromatic, with lots of roasted coffee and a decent share of bitter hops. a solid entry."

OldMrCrow (2434) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Tap at the brewpub.

Light yellow in color, modest white head. The aroma seems grassy, cascade hops notwithstanding. Flavor follows, a mild hop snap, as sessionable as it is unexceptional.

joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 12, 2013
On draft at the brewpub. It pours a clear golden yellow color with a white head. The aroma is lemony with some light herbal notes and grapefruit. The flavor is dry with some pine, bread and herbal spice bitterness. They label this as an English Pale Ale, but it is more American influenced than I would have expected. Fresh, light and clean. A nice alternative to the other hop bombs they do here.

monk191 (1951) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 6, 2013
A good pale ale. Pours an ugly clear yellow, but smells good, like strawberries and honey. Taste is creamy, and sweet up front, but a slightly strange straw aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ibrew2or3 (8557) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 18, 2012
On tap at Triple Rock pouring up clear deep gold with thin copper core and tiny near bright white head. The mild aroma offers up some sweet malts, a touch of slightly roasted malts and a dash of vague hoppiness. The taste has carbonation enhanced punchy notes of spicy to floral hops mixing with some sweet malts and a thin river of malty sweetness. Nice Pale where the hops are a bit on the bright side for an, as stated, English Style Pale but Im totally cool with that.
