Bottle from Liquid Solutions. Poured a very light golden with a wonderful hop aroma. Taste was a very hoppy/ grapefruitty with a good malt balance. I really enjoyed this beer. Too bad it isn’t more easily obtained.

Honey colored with a white head and floaties. Aroma is strong grapefruit. Flavor is a bit sweet, and tastes like leaves from a tree. Watery and ordinary.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle poured a clear gold color with a nice white head. The aroma was more spice and pine hops than citrus with some light caramel malt notes. The taste was balanced with no lingering bitterness and a nice crisp finish. Overall an excellent Extra Pale, but just an ok American Pale.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2006 Nice all around. Pours clear golden yellow with little white head. Aroma is citrus and perfumy hops with some malt sweetness. Flavor is exceptionally balanced. All flavors complement and don’t overpower one another. Nice easy drinker.

This is actually an extra pale ale, so i give it high marks for its full body, strong hops scents and easy to drink finish. Its the perfect beer to share with people who dont know anything bout beer. Youll have a hearty brew and theyll have a crisp refreshing drink. Very well done for its catagory.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2006 Pale amber pour with white head. When you pour it a piney citrus and malt aroma jumps out at you. Flavors of lemon citrus, hops, and a balanced malt flavor. Flavors are not that strong, and the beer is very smooth and drinkable.

I really enjoyed this ber. Nice clean golden color, great aroma of hops and fruit, definitely an american pale ale and not an IPA, but very well balanced hop flavor.
