22 oz bomber. Pours a medium amber with a slight tam wispy head. Crips hop aroma right off the bat. Overall a light body with a crisp hop taste that lingers.
Smooth and very drinkable. Great notes of citrus. Clean. Balanced bitterness on the finish. An excellently crafted pale ale.

From tap at The Widmer Brothers Pub, Portland. Aroma is soft fruity hops with mild citrussy notes and a sweetish caramel malt backbone. Flavour is moderate sweet and mildly bitter. Body is medium. Classic APA, easy and drinkable. BeerRenter76 (1007) - Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Originally rated on 2/10/09. Aroma of citrus hops along with some malts. Appearance was a mid amber body, plenty of carbonation, thin head that left some lace. Flavor was a bit disappointing with the hops taking on a earty almost skunky taste. Overall it was fairly decent until the flavor got in the way trveboozer (3) - The Desert, Arizona, USA - APR 10, 2017 does not count
Great Summer beer, hoppy with a light citrus aftertaste. Doesn’t disappoint, perfect on any day. JackLope (1) - - MAR 19, 2016 does not count
I can’t find this anymore. My favorite location stopped serving it long time ago.

3/4" head with nice lace and a firm cap atop a clear orange amber brew....
The nose is resounding citric... tangerine even..
Flavor is the same... zesty orange.. some doughy maltiness adds a little bit of sweetness.. with a light smack of caramel.. really balanced yet you still know this is a fresh PNW pale ale... medium body with a lively carbonation... even the burps taste like tangerine juice essence..
This is actually pretty damn good pale ale. justsayswell (277) - Kansas City, Kansas, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Reviewed from notes. Pours a clear amber with about an inch of head. Nose is bread, caramel, and citrus. Taste follows. Bready malt backbone with a punch of tropical fruit and citrus from the hops. A delicious and sessionable Pale Ale. GreatDane1632 (1169) - North Dakota, USA - NOV 23, 2014
First beer that exposed me to Nelson Sauvin hops. I’m a big fan of those hops and as such, this beer really sat high on my list for a while. Nice pale ale with fruit flavors imparted by the NS hops. slowrunner77 (11917) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 3, 2014
"nice balance of malts and hops here, making this pale better than average pale ale. other than the balance and the nice floral hop aroma, nothing stands out, but it’s a solid rep of the style." ads135 (4587) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 15, 2014
A pleasant APA. I wasn’t expecting much considering their mediocre hefe, but this is a very well balanced mix of pine and caramel, citrus and bread.
