look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - light golden brown, decent head dissipated to random covering leaving lots of sticky lacing
S - strong earthy and peppery notes, with some light grainy and adjunct notes in the background
T - light earthy and citrus hop notes, but getting lots of adjunct flavour, just not where it should be
M - light body, medium carbonated, some bitterness, finishing a little thin
O - what started promising turned out pretty average, don't know much about this brewer but I'm assuming its a very small operation, so big respect for putting something out there

From their website: Montana grown 2-row pale, white wheat, and caramel malts. Simcoe and Cascade hops. Named after the two rivers that flow into Flathead Lake- the Flathead and Swan rivers.

As a person that's trying to avoid wheat, I wish this ingredient was stated on the bottle itself. This may not agree with me later.

Poured from a bomber into a sampler. A moderate pour produces about one inch of fluffy, bubbly head that dissipates quickly into a thin island that goes halfway across the top and rings the sides. The beer is a slightly hazy ruddy golden color with moderate carbonation.

There's plenty of floral and citrusy hop aroma-flavors but it's not too intense. Grapefruit and possibly some blood orange notes come through. Backing it is a light bodied and lightly sweet malt base. Slight astringency on the palate during the aftertaste, which lingers just a bit. Tingly mouthfeel with florid burps.

This is a pretty decent pale ale. The hops add nice aroma-flavors without completely overpowering the malt.

Poured from a standard pressure-cap bomber into a conic pint glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- Two finger fluffy white head. Decent retention. Hazy orange-gold body.

S- Despite the bottle's assurances that there are Cascade hops here, I don't detect them. Some golden malts and floral hops.

T- Light floral hoppiness. I get more of the Cascades here.

M- Relatively thick bodied. Wet and clean finish.

O- It gradually improved over the course of drinking. Not great but not awful.
