Full Sail Pale Ale
, 5.40% ABV
Full Sail Brewing Co., Hood River, Oregon
The Pale Ale from Full Sail Brewing Company in Hood River, Oregon pours out a coppery gold in color with good clarity and a one finger white, head that dissipates fairly quickly. On the nose aromas of floral hops, honey, caramel and some bready malt. In the mouth this is slightly bitter from the hops at first, with good citrus undertones, that becomes quite subdued by malt, honeyed sweetness and some grain flavors. Medium bodied. Good carbonation. Some lacing. Slight oil to the mouthfeel. Good length on the finish that is well balanced between malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness allowing you taste both. A really nice pale ale that shows its Pacific North West roots.
