UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 On tap at Beachwood BBQ, Seal Beach, poured into shaker pint. Appearance is clear orange-amber with a finger and a half of white head that lasts and leaves patchy lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, mango, pineapple, pine, and biscuit malt. Taste is hoppy citrus bitterness with a fading pine note followed by a balancing malty sweetness. Medium bodied, slightly oily texture, average carbonation, just to the bitter side of balanced on the finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear, bright amber appearance with an average size white head and decent lacing. Straw and resinous hops play around in the aroma. Citrus and pine hop flavors dominate and together with the crisp, bitter aftertaste raises the bar for this style. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a lingering finish.

This was an awesome pale ale. Very hoppy and flavorful. Aroma was nice. Coincidently had a good mix of onion, grass and hay. Pour was a nice hazy medium light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was big and full for such a low ABV. Strong hop flavor with the same flavors as the aroma. Very light malt influence. Nice carbonation. This beer is hoppier than a lot of IPAs and was a great surprise.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Bud. Malty, honey nose with orange and peach. Hoppy, malty flavor, sweet and a bit cloying with lots of honey malts and then cat piss and big bitterness. Not my thing.
