Pours a airly clear pale golden yellow, nose is moderate with hops, hints of citrus and floral. Taste is pretty dry, hint of residual sweetness, very light in body, and a nice finish of PNW hops. A really flavorful pale ale. Very impressed with drakes lately.

Keg at Knotty Barrel, San Diego. Clear burnished gold, receding head. Bready malt aroma, some spicy hop notes. Great balance on the taste though, just the right amount of citrus and bitterness. Good body. Very drinkable.

15th July 2014, pint on tap in Schooner, Sunset Beach, Orange County. Cloudy orange/golden pour with a thin white head. Plenty of hops for a Pale Ale, American or otherwise, but I am on the West Coast and they seem to like their hops to take over the beers around here. I enjoyed the brew actually, not too bitter or overridingly hoppy, just a handful or two too many. Liked the fact it was only 5.5% as I was on a mission drinking along the Orange County coastal road via Bus Route No1. Had a great day.

Draft from the source. Light dankness, some grass and malt with traces of pine needles. Flavor is huge west coast influence, good amount of pine. Lighter body with slight lingering dankness. Thin body is the biggest negative, overall very drinkable.

Hazed orange. Pine and sweet fruit aroma. Taste is very chewy. Dank and juicy with a lot of pine cone and crystal malt finish. Classic west coast

Nice hop presence. Hoppy but not overly bitter. Too hoppy for a pale ale. Draft at Spremger’s Tap Room.
