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

12 oz can from 5000. Nose is citrus with some light grass and pine. Hazy copper with a big, short lived, lightly lacing, off white head. Flavor is bitterness, some lemony citrus, and light caramel maltiness. Finishes moderately bitter.

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 8, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2011 Solid pale ale. Nice caramel hue with a decent head. Malts are rich -- toasty, bready and cracker-like, with only a subtle caramel sweetness. Hops are balanced with earthy hints of herbs and grass. Grapefruit-like bitterness in the aftertaste.

poisoneddwarf (2646) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - FEB 4, 2012
12 oz can. Pours hazy orange-copper with noticeable sediment. Has a large cream rocky head that lasts, leaving lace. Aroma is citrus rind, citrus powder drink, grain. Taste is sweet, sour and bitter all rolled into one. Tastes a little worty, some metal, blood. Body is a little thin, carbonation average. A flawed but drinkable APA.

Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - AUG 12, 2011
Hazy amber orange, thick beiege head. Aroma is pretty heavy with sweet malts, dark fruit, pine. Taste is more dank and bitter than the aroma lead me to believe and most APA’s in general. Good malt balance.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Growler. Big toffee nose contrasted by a dry leafy side. Caramel side of amber, frosty haze, creamy off white head, sticky lacing. Little bit on the dark side of caramel, gently toasted biscuit, finishes very clean with only a touch of green grassy hops accenting the finish. Went great with a clam chowder that was less chowder and more milky potato soup with clams.

Beerdrinker79 (2218) - Idaho, USA - MAR 3, 2012
12 oz. shrink wrapped can- Pours slightly hazy orange with a one finger head that reduces to a soapy looking blanket. The aroma is hops, soap, maybe a little fruity. The taste is sweet almost candylike, some hops, not in your face at all, very sessionable. Body is medium to almost light, carbonation is soft. Overall not a masterpiece, but it is very drinkable, I enjoyed it.
