COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We took our time to get the finely-tuned balance of Persnickety Pale just right. The clean orange-peel character – brought on by Yakima Valley Chinook, Cascade and Centennial hops – balances perfectly with a soft caramel malt profile, built entirely from locally malted Washington grain.
OG: 1.058 SRM: 13 Malts: Base Malt, Crystals, Munich, Vienna, Carapils Hop varieties: Centenniel, Cascade, Chinook, Galena

RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 23, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2012 Aroma is quite yeasty with hints of citrus. Body is citrusy as well - lemon, orange peel, grapefruit. Nicely bitter, but balanced enough to be sessionable. Finish is long and full of grapefruit rind. I quite liked this.

Can. It pours a clear, golden body and a small, dense, off-white head. Lightly citrusy nose with some caramel in the back. Some citrus peel and resin in the flavor, and of course bitterness, else it’s more or less like the aroma, with caramel as a foundation for the hops. Medium body, dry. Not my idea of an American pale ale, but it’s drinkable and far from foul. 120622

In a can. Session beer with a moderate amount of hops but not something that's overly complex. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.1
CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Can. Orange copper colored in appearance with a half-inch of beige foam. Mostly earthy hops, citrus and cereal malt in the aroma. The taste is sour grapefruit and orange rind upfront followed by some herbal hops bitterness and toasted biscuit malt. Lots of carbonation in the body along with a tangy, bitter finish. The overall flavor is slightly off-balance and tastes more like an Amber or ESB than an APA.

3.2
Zeswaft (1773) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Fairly mainstream. Moderately hoppy, some wheaty malt flavors and aroma. Slight sour tang. Sessionable and satisfying but nothing to rave about.
