3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
tap at the brewery and at the Microbar in Rockford, IL-pours bright orange with a small soapy white head. nose is very husky with lots of hops too-do i detect rye? flavors are sweet, husky, hoppy, with lots of citrus and floral notes. very simple but for the abv, this beer is easy to session. big citrus flavors for such a small beer with a long citrus finish. lingering husk notes but thats to be expected for this beer. tasty!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draft: OíBrienís and Liarsí Club in San Diego, CA) A great idea from Ballast Point! The nose is very fruity, kind of peachy, lightly hoppy. The flavor is fruity and moderately bitter, but the hops does stand out because the lightly-sweet, grainy malt base is pretty light. Light-medium body, very clean and fairly crisp, moderate carbonation. Pale golden color is somewhat hazy. Smallish, off-white head settles to a filmy layer, leaving a few spots of lace behind. At 4.5%, this is a true session beer for the hopheads in San Diego. I like more malt in my hoppy beers, so while I can appreciate the flavor of the hops, this really isnít a beer for me.

I had this on tap at Ballast Pointís 10th Anniversary Party. It pours a clear golden color witha mild hoppy flavor. They listed it as a session ale and it certainly is. Itís a very nice middle of the road brew

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Caramel orange, off white cover. The aroma is toast, perfume, citrus hops. The taste is largely the same, very floral and perfumey, light bodied but expected at the ABV level. This beer is fantastic and would make an amazing session if it werenít for the $5.50 price for the pint.

On tap @ Ballast Point (Linda Vista) - Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. Aroma is hops and light esters. Flavor is hops, light esters, and light caramel malt. Nice balance. A light to medium body beer. Very easy drinking. This would be a good beer to convert the non-believers.

Tap at the Old Grove brewery. Light gold pour with a nice white head. Clean crisp flavor, light on the palate. Not alot of aroma, but this would be really good session beer if available on a regular basis.
