A very smooth and accomplished pale. Crisp and refreshing with nice hop character and solid taste throughout. A great session beer that goes great with almost any food.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz Bottle on 15th March 2014 before a meal in The Rusty Pelican, Newport Beach. Pours with a slight haze, orange to Amber in colour with a head that did not want to be there.
Citrus hop aroma, tempered with a mild maltiness. The taste was also a pleasant blend of citrusy hops and a subtle malt undertone. Body depth suited the brew and I thoroughly enjoyed my bottle.

Draft at the brewery taproom - Fullerton. Pours clear, bright gold with a lasting, white cream head. The nose holds light pine needles, hay, melon and lemon rind. Light-medium sweet flavor with moderate bitterness, some mango, apricot, pine needles. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Balanced finish with some sweet, lightly dried pale malts, more tropical fruits and pine. Good one.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz from Costco Californina. Still cant believe I can buy good beer at costco in california. PA beer laws are so frickin idiotic. PA Politicians suck. Nice mild Orange aroma upon opening. I always enjoy trying PAle ales because it is so much harder to make a pale ale rise above the average than it is to do the same with an IPA. This one makes a decent effort, but is not quite dry enough nor hop-forward enough for my tastes. Decent., but barely rises above average.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased at a tiny liquor store near LAX on a recent business trip. Pours a nice orange copper color in the glass. Immediate aroma of citrus and piney hops. Interesting flavor of a citrus rinds and wood notes followed by a clean dryness on the palate. Overall, a real nice find. I’ll be on the look out for more of this next time I’m in LA.
