UPDATED: MAR 8, 2013 Orange appereance with a white head with fair lacing. Smell is of Pine and Citrus. A few caramel notes are present but flavor is dominated by Cascades. Reminds me of a boozier SNPA.

Can. Lightly hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and mildly crisp and semi dry. Smooth but thin malts, semi sweet. Light marmalade hops, little tangy bitterness. Pine and hops spice. Whisper of tropical fruits. Minerally crisp finish. Easy drinking.

olio (5969) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 23, 2014
473 ml can.
Pours dark copper color with a medium sized head. Mandarin and orange peel on the nose, some grassy hops, faint caramel notes as well as some distant pine needle notes. Flavor of citric fruits, gooseberries, kind of grassy, pale malt notes and some hops. Refreshing, very simple, slightly better than I expected.

Can. Pours crystal clear orange with a medium puffy pale white orange head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is light with citrus, pine and biscuit notes. Flavor follows, just a touch of sweetness, light bitterness overall, some pine and caramel. Lightish body, a bit watery. Not bad.

Full pour at the brewery. Much needed thesis break. Aroma is pretty darn clean with cracker, pale malt, and a whiff of orange peel. The whole thing almost seems sugary after a few attempts to identify it. The beer pours hazy orange that actually does glow when held up to the light. Taste pretty clean with mostly pale malt, and bread bread showing. Lingering tastes of poppy seeds, orange peel, and candied grapefruit show up on the tongue. Definitely not bitter, but he hops lend a fruity flavor. Body is light with medium-high carbonation. A little fizzy at the end back, finishes a little full. Overall a pretty clean and fruity pale ale. Bitterness is absent but the hops lend a nice fruit character to make sure this is not too bland. Nice brew.

Had a taste on tap at the brewery. Solid, if a bit standard. Good west coast hoppiness, light.

brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Orange in color with a white head. Some orange peel and general citrus hop notes on the nose. Bready malt sweetness, grass, and some pine. A bit bland, though. The flavor is a little bland as well, but okay. Some orange peel, pine, and grassy hops. Bready malt flavor and lightly bitter on the finish.

On tap at the brewery with my bro-in-law Mike. Great off-the-radar brewery. Strong amber pour with off white head. Good bite, but not overpowering roast. Great hoppiness. Nice even pale ale.
