Golden straw colour. Flowery aroma hints of quenching capabilities. Fresh citrusy character - light and grapefruity. A little astringency. Light malt notes. Similar to an English golden ale.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 18, 2003
Awesome hop aroma, so floral and rich with hops. When you drink this one you're expecting a bitter explosion of hops but it doesn't happen, the hops are all for aroma, almost none in the finish. There's a slight citrus aftertaste, it's not bad.

Medium orange old color. Small head. Aroma is malty, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied pale ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are grapefruity and floral. Nicely balanced. Smooth taste. Nice dry hoppy finish. Touches of orange peel. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

thedm (4887) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 4, 2007
This draft brew from the Old Lampoc brew pub poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized off-white colored bubbles that were and left behind a and a good lacing. The aroma was malty and bready. The crisp and clean mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops.

hotstuff (3917) - Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Draft at New Old Lompoc Brewery, Portland, OR. Ivory head that was mostly lasting, decent amount of lacing, transparent, minimal amount of carbonation, and an orange hue. Nose was bitter, hoppy, fruity, and lightly malty. Flavor was bitter, hoppy and fruity. Fairly smooth mouthfeel and medium body. Quaffable brew that was not over-the-top hops and not too bitter tasting. Worthy of a try.

drfabulous (3646) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUL 26, 2010
Draught at Horse Brass. Somewhat orange body and a bit of orange in the taste. But overall, just a solid IPA (though it was listed as a Pale) with very nice flavor. Very enjoyable.
