This beer is my interpretation of a classic California Pale Ale. The yeast allow the aromatic Yakima hops to shine through and hit your nose. A significant malty character is balanced with a small dose of bittering hops.

On tap at the brewery. Clear light golden appearance with a beige head. Aroma of citrus zest, tropical fruit, fresh hops and light grass. Similar flavor, adding mild malt sweetness and light hop bitterness. Light to medium body, kind of thin, with soft carbonation and a smooth, creamy feel. Pretty good for these guys.

(draft @ Big Beaver Brewing - Loveland, CO) Hazy gold pour with a thin white head. Light citrus aroma with some light grass. Flavor is about the same. Mild citrus and light malt. Not too bad, but a little plain.

Sample at the brewery. Comes light amber with an average tan head. Aroma of citrus and malt. Taste is citrus hops, malt, and cereal. A bit bitter at the finish. OK.

onceblind (6927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 8, 2011
Clear copperish amber with a light cream colored head. Citrusy nose with a pale malt and biscuity undertone. Same for the flavor, just some bitter citrus hops, with a nicely balanced biscuity, pale malt and cereal grain backbone. Decent, but struck me as outstandingly average and forgettable.

adnielsen (10445) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 18, 2011
On tap @ brewery. Orange appearance with a tan head. Pretty citrus hoppy, pale malty nose. Somewhat bitter, orange citrus hoppy flavor. Ok.

Ratman197 (12958) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2011
On tap at Big Beaver poured a clear orange amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness, skunk bud and cat piss. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness and light skunk bud with a smooth lingering earthy finish.
