3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2008 2008-09-08, draught at the brewpub in Rancho Drive, 6-3-6-3-12=30
Golden color. The body is quite weak, both aroma and flavor have a earthy character (manure), reasonable IPA bitterness. Maybe I’m getting more exigent.

Light amber color; creamy head; nice lace. Good fruity aromatic hops; the taste is also quite malty. Just the bitterness in the middle is not very strong.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the Rancho Dr brewpub. This brew pours a clear golden-amber color with a thin white head that diminishes steadily. Thin stringy lacing. Light hops and citrus in the nose. Medium-bodied with weak citrusy hops, caramel and malt flavor. The finish is short and lightly hoppy. Forgettable overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear light orange, very hopped with a sweet pine and citrus juice nose... flavor is similar, has good balance but resembles an IPA more.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub, Vegas. I guess this beer is the standing tribute to the original brewery Holy Cow, that became Big Dogs of today. Medium golden body, thin white head. Aroma is very muted, piney, but just really low. Pale biscuit malts, light piney hops, moderately bitter finish. Nothing wrong with this, it just seemed really reserved.

On tap. Pretty solid pale. Pours with a, well...its pale (very light color, sub 9 SRM if I had to guess). Good lace and minimal white head. Light pine like hops. Taste is floral and pine needle bitterness. Bitterness lingers. Nice and hoppy! Fizzy. Decent!
