2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Aliceís Restaurant in Woodside. Pours a clear reddish-amber color with a small whitish head and some lacing. Aroma is not too pronounced, with bready malt, caramel, rye, and somewhat restrained citrusy hops. Flavor is bready malt, caramel, and rye. The description calls this beer a pale ale, but thereís IPA in the name, which begs the question: where are the hops? This really is not bad, but itís not an IPA. Iíd call it a rye pale ale, and itís a bit like a homebrew, fairly rough around the edges. Medium-light body with average carbonation. Drinkable at least, but pretty average overall. As the top rater of Devilís Canyon and therefore the worldís supreme authority on their beers, I continue to describe them as "meh."
