Clear orange yellow with a foamy beige head and ok lace. Aromas of bready malt and citrus - lemon and orange. Flavor is similar, with a gentle herbal hop flourish. Light to medium body, low carbonation, prickly mouthfeel, and a generic finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Beachwood BBQ Seal Beach poured into shaker. Amber color, one finger of head, spotty lacing. Aroma is mild, grassy hops, honey and bread malt, some citrus peel. Flavors are similar with a cracker malt backbone and slightly more assertive hop bitterness - a balanced apa. Textbook palate: light bodied, crisp texture, moderate-high carbonation, a touch dry in the finish. Paired well with my salad.

11/15/13. 22oz bomber from ninotchka22. Thanks, gurl! Obscenely pristine clear amber copper pour with a nice khaki head that sticks around and laces quite well, actually. Very subdued aroma, bitter, but not much character. There’s also a hint of a mineral aspect, some metal, breadiness, and light citrus hoppiness. Mellow flavor, minerals, caramel, metallic, a bit of a citrus bite, not much else. Meh.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a lager-clear orange golden color with a pure white head for which Fig is well known. Mouthfeel is nearly perfect for the style. Wet and full with a hint of carbonation and hop warmth. Tangerine, grapefruit, and a hint of pine. Pine emerges more in the flavor. Some tangerine and grapefruit flavors. Fine example of the style.

A fairly solid pale sampled at the Buellton tap room. For a hophead, it is a little light on the bitterness and the grain/malts don’t seem to pick up the slack.
