This is a classic example of the American Pale Ale style. Bright Amber in appearance with a clean white head. There is a citrus nose and a medium body which makes this the perfect session beer.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 4, 2016
On tap @ Firehouse. Slightly cloudy orange beer with a dense white head. The aroma is not totally terrible, but it is not great either. A lot of grass, some orange peel, and just a touch of line. Maybe a hint of peach and dried apricot. Sort of sweet, but also a little bit of dry grass/straw character to it. Certainly grainy and a little bit stale. Not great.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2012
Sampler perched at the bar of the brewpub, 31/08/12, scribbling notes like a lunatic in retractable pencil on a scrap of paper. Had 15mins to sink (and describe) 6 beers. Biscuit, peach, grassy and slight flowering shrub aroma. Taste: grapefruit, cereal, biscuits, slight stewed tea, almond, soapy breakfast juice and flowery hints. Very decent- about the pick of the samplers.

On tap at the Palo Alto location. Nice clean citrus aroma. Clear light gold with white head that does not linger. Taste is nice and crisp with medium mouthfeel. Citrus throughout. Some slightly harsh bitterness and an awkward finish, but a nice beer all around.

keepersj12 (3063) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2011
A very nice warm weather beer. Pours a light amber with a foamy white head. The aroma has some bread, malt and a hint of hops. The flavor is nice old fashioned beer. Malty up front, bitter at the back. Crisp and clean finish begs for more.
