"very nice indeed. one of the best pales i’ve had in quite some time. as hoppy as some brewers ipas but lighter, sweeter, and more refreshing. still crisp, with floral and citrus hops and good balance. nailed this one."

Classic Left Coast Pale. Thick and hoppy enough to keep you interested while being able to gulp plenty of it. Love they still have the old picture up here!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask version @ brewpub. Opaque dark orange with a fluffy stable white head. Brightly hopped aroma. Amarillo? Yum. Fruity. Oranges with fresh, oily hop buds on top. Quaffable, so very very quaffable! Goes down easily. Is earthier and milder flavored than the aromas let on. The body is balanced and mellow. Liked a lot.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Elysian Fields pub. Colour... dark gold with no head. Nose... light hops and some malt. Palate... lightly hoppy, malty and citrusy. Kind of blah, really.
