3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Uber Tavern in Seattle. Poured amber color with a medium-sized white head. Flavor is balanced between hops and malts. Can taste floral hops that are balanced out with a caramel malty taste. Pretty smooth beer which makes it easy to consume.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the brewpub. Relatively generic APA with carmel malts etc. The saving grace is a solid citrus hop kick. A good brew to knock back a few with.

On draught at brewery. Very good session pale ale. Very dry and hoppy. Hop bitterness is not too strong though hop flavor is definately the star. I enjoy dry pale ales and this one is dry.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
What a nice beer. Completely flying under beer geek USAís radar, this beer is a really great example of an America pale ale. Itís got just the right combo of maltyness and hoppyness to be near perfect in balance. Excellent condition gives this a beautiful color and head. This baby is worth every penny if/when you find it.

Tap at brewery in Alpine, CA: Golden, nose of light fruity hops. The flavor is rich and sweet. A light balanced hop and malt tango. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden colored with a dusty aroma, I was really surprised when I found bottles of this in Orange County. The flavor is dry and tangy. Itís a very nice APA from a brewer that deserves more publicity.

Moderate aroma of lemon grass. Orange-tinged straw in color with a fluffy white head. Caramel-sweet flavor with nice component of c-hop flavor. A real desert thirst-quencher.

Bottle. Pale amber beer with a nice white head. LIght hoppy (grapefruit) and slight caramel aroma. LIghter bodied. Some nice grapefruit, orange, and a bit of pine flavor over some sweet malt, but the lighter body takes away from this. Easy drinking, but has the potential if there was a bit more body to be better. I didnít have the big hop aroma that others mentioned - bottle had a date of coming to the store a month before being drunk.
