paulmetzger (154) - Pocatello, Idaho, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Light yellow fine beaded head. Aroma is heavy berries and floral. Nice dry hopping. Flavor is dominated by hops, starting citrus piney and fading quickly to flowers and berries. Smooth and crisp with a long lingering bitter. Very drinkable.

Sigmund (5024) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2008
Bottle, at the GBBF 2008. Golden colour, moderate head. Very nice hoppy aroma, notes of citrus and tropical fruits. Pleasant hoppy flavour but not overdone, well balanced.

Nebulor (109) - , California, USA - FEB 14, 2009
Pours a gold color with a copper hue and lots of action and suspended sediment also had an inch high white head and lacing. Has a slight caramel malt smell with some hop esters in the background. Has a sweet tea (eyewater) taste with some caramel and grapefruit hops through to the finish. Very drinkable due to the balance as a session beer or even a session starter.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2009
Bottle. Aroma of strongly toasted, raw-grain cracker, loads of leafy hops, citrus, raspberry, all assertive yet well integrated. The grain presence is quite impressive and unexpected. Flavor quite interesting as well with cantaloupe, maybe other melon, delicately resinous, spicy hops, toasted whole grain bread, maybe a bit of caramel. Quite complex really. Smooth bitterness creeps up on you toward the finish but also melds into the sweet malty notes. Really nice.

355ml bottle. Full rich creamy and deep white head that sits atop a vibrant amber body. Strong hop aromas with a floral thread coming through. Hop flavour livens up the mouth and leaves a pleasant and long lasting aftertaste.

Maris (983) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2011
From a 650ml bottle on 25/1/2011. Has a moderate but pleasant aroma of pine, oranges, caramel and toffee, with some floral notes. Flavour wise, there is heaps going on with citrus fruit, spices, nuts and caramel and toffee notes. There are oodles of lovely, lingering hops to savour long after it goes down the hatch. This is a superb pale ale and criminally under-rated on here. Yet another cracker from Anderson Valley.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a light gold color with a white head. Nose brings forward some citrus and floral his along with some bready malt. Taste brigs on some bitterness at a pretty high rate for the style. Feel is nice with good bitterness and carbonation. Drinks quite well and is one of my favorites from them.
