Full Sail Brewing - IPA; Pale Ale

The Full Sail Brewing is in Hood River, Oregon.

IPA - This 6.0% ABV beer pours a light to medium copper-amber in color with a small head that leaves light lacing down the glass.  The aroma is mostly dark fruit, slightly sweet, with a bit of fresh grass.  The taste is malty, biscuit and slightly sweet pastry, a bit of tea, with a very dry and very bitter finish.  This is along the lines of a classic British style IPA.

Pale Ale - This 5.4% ABV beer pours a clear copper in color with a slight head and fine carbonation.  The aroma is malty, fresh grain and grass with a zesty overtone.  The taste feels light, a cranberry and cherry scone, with a bitter finish.
