3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Appearance: sudsy 1" off white head recedes quickly with nice lacing. Color is clear rich gold with mild streaming carbonation.
Aroma: citrus and floral aroma dominates, some caramel and bread dough in the background.
Mouthfeel: light and somewhat sticky mouthfeel with a somewhat dry finish.
Flavor: balanced hop and malt flavors. The sweet caramel and bready malts lead the way, followed by citrus and then a lingering bitterness in the swallow.
Overall: a pleasant pale ale and representative of the style.

There is more to the floral citrus smell and golden hue than actual flavor. It smells great, pine and a back note of citrus but becomes a watered down version of their other pale ales. Good if you are drinking a bunch of these over the course of a day. A bit lacking if you expect a hop note finish, deceptively smooth with no hops lingering.

This beer is awesome when it’s really cold. It’s very hoppy, and has a distinct flavor reminiscent of Sweetwater 420 but a little sharper.

Golden color with a disappearing head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, sweet, caramel. Flavor very hoppy, not excessively bitter, and has the right level of malt. Ends dry and has a soft mouth feel and carbonation. This is a great APA - restrained except with the aroma hops.

bottle courtesy of Norcalgrowler. Pours a deep gold with a thin white head that lingers leaving nice lacing behind. Aroma is strong, but not overpowering citrusy hops with a hint of oak. Flavor is hoppy, but smooth - letting the malt come through with a little oak character. Liked this a lot.

Decent Pale... not too much to say about this one. Tastes like an English ale with a little extra bitterness, very light head from bottle, very drinkable but not memorable. Serve cold.
