3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in a flight at the local brewpub. Pours a clear bright gold with a white head that laces the glass and settles into a film and ring. Notes of pineapple, lemon, grass, straw, pale and bready malts, florals, and melon. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, juicy, moderately bitter mouthfeel. Surprisingly good pale ale, and considerably better than the IPA.

Taster in Florence - nose is resin. Sip adds more resin. Malty backbone and fairly bitter. Decent and inoffensive.

21st May 2015: BJís Laguna Hills outlet. Part of an eight glass flight. Light golden pour with a full white crown of foam on top. Hop front with a malty backbone, I thought the blend of flavours married together well: mild fruitiness and mini citrus feel to the taste. This was the first beer I tried of the eight and a good, basic start to my tasting session. Not too sure where the "For hopheads only!" comes from?

From site: A hoppy, American-style pale ale made with Yakima Valley’s best hops. Bittered with Chinook, while dry-hopped with the snappy flavor and bite of Cascade hops. For hopheads only!

Had at the brewpub in San Antonio. Do I detect Simcoe? Same as others, has promise. Just needs the extra oomph from a fuller grain bill.

[2/21/15] Draught at BJís Mission Valley in San Diego. Clear golden. Aroma is a bit grainy with citric hops. Sweetish flavor with a bit of malt, citric hops and a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied. Easy-drinking.

Never have I met a beer so middle of the road. Nothing wrong with this one at all, really nothing. Nothing stand out either. I could drink a bunch of these and hardly notice I was drinking beer at all. "for hop heads only..." really? I will not complain here, because I detect nothing I donít like. Thing is, I detect almost nothing at all!

(tap) clear, bright light amber colour with a small beige head; aroma of malt, lemon; flavour like a lemonade with a long medium bitter finish, bit strange

Ok. Clear copper pour with minimal head, but strong lacing from what it does have. Around is grainy. Taste is grain and some citrus in the background.

Keg at BJs, Gainesville, VA. Pours a clear golden with a medium sized frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of floral, citrus, tinny hops, grainy malt. The taste is grassy, citrus hops and pale malt. Thin-medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness.
