Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Fruity citric hops, lighter dank piney notes, and moderate bitterness. Very light malty base. Pretty good.

Not sure of the date on this...seemed kinda sorta fresh. Ish. I love me some Citra hops (and apparantly others do to cause this incarnation of Blue House scores way better than the others on RB). Definitely a one trick pony, light all around, but features the twang and citrus kick of the Citra hops.

Tejas (872) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Draught > Toronado. Refreshing as hell. Super easy drinker. Not crazy hoppy just as a pale should be. Not super dry either which I appreciated. This would be a regular drinker if it were in Texas.

RedSox2004 (1253) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Cloudy copper orange, three-finger off-white head, thick film and very nice lace. Aromas of floral and citrus hops, lots of orange and grapefruit. with a hint of bready malt. Bright citrus hop flavor, almost tart, with a mild offsetting malt sweetness. Medium body, bright carbonation, exquisitely smooth and creamy mouthfeel, and a crisp and dry finish. Terrific.

Bottle. Pours a clear yellow orange with no head. The aroma is strong citrus and resin. Medium mouthfeel with nice fruity hop and light dry bitterness. Very good.

Keg at the Commons Ale House, Santa Monica, 16/04/14. Clear pale golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is pine, bitter hops, grass, mandarin, grapefruit, solid aromas! Taste comprises pine, mango, bitter citrics, grassy knolls, orange pith, grapefruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi aggressive hop bitterness in the close. Super solid APA!

Barreras (982) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - APR 23, 2014
Pours a yellow color with a light floral aroma. Taste is a bit spruce and hay with floral notes. An easy drinking beer that had an earthy flavor overall. The aftertaste had a small hint of spice. This beer was easy drinking and could be enjoyable on a warm day.

ACD (639) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 20, 2014
Bomber, nice and fresh. Hazy gold. Lovely peach and pineapple in the aroma, some light orange and slight pine spruce too. Sweet and juicy melon, peach and pineapple in the taste, light spruce, and a bit of sweet biscuit malt. Lovely balance. Good little bitter citric and pine kick. Juicy finish. Medium body. Solid - could drink bucketloads of this.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a bright yellow color with an off white head. Aroma is ruby red grapefruit, mango and Tangerine. Flavor is dryish and citrusy with bready maltiness in back. Medium body, light carbonation. Finish is moderately bitter. A very nice session ale. Iím really enjoying this beer, so much so that Iíve stocked up in case itís not in steady rotation.
