Postmortem Brew Review
Brown color with orange hues.
Carmel malt and spice hop smell.
Off white 2 finger head that leaves a cover.
Good amount of lacing on the glass.

Nice balance malt and hops taste.
Active carbonation; slight tart fruit note on finish.
Light, refreshing mouth feel.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy

Very pleasant take on a pale ale from our 50th state.  I rather enjoyed the fruitiness found near the end of each sip.  It was nearly indistinguishable, but the fruit tones were definitely there.

The hops were also present but not burning, as one would expect in a pale ale.  That too, was very refreshing. This is not so much  a, "'ve gotta' try this, it's great..." beer as much as it is a, "'ve gotta' try this it's really pretty good..." beer.  Know what I mean?

So really, you've gotta' try this.  It's a pretty good beer.
