3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap. Golden pour with a slick of white foam. Aroma is bitter hops, pine, and some sweet malt. Taste is heavily bitter with pine and a fairly dry malt backbone that shows a bit of sweetness. Clean, slightly coating mouthfeel. This is an IPA and a nice one.

Clear orange-gold with big, foamy, white head / Bright, smooth nose of weed, pine, citrus, and cream / Medium body, creamy with big hop bite, fruit somewhat overpowered astringent with lots of bitterness in finish / Flavors of orange peel, grapefruit, and cut pine / A solid ipa, just a little disjointed.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA Pours light amber with a creamy white head. Med body. Aroma is citrus and a bit "wheaty". Flavor is somewhat malty with fairly strong hop - more citrus than anything else. It’s a pale without the strong roast malt of many pales - but more than expected in an IPA. Hybrid. Dry and bitter with some grapefruit rind in the finish. Very nice drink.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Gift from Neko-chan. Pine and citrus (mostly citrus) and thick caramel malt nose. Slightly hazy dark straw color, big fluffy head, and thick lace sticking to the glass. Good malty and more-or-less balanced initial; dark hops bounce out in mid palate; final has a slight bitter burn and then fades to a creamy balance. Thin medium body. Sharp hoppiness for a pale ale; it really feels more like an IPA. The label claims, " An IPA on any other street."

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Growler Fill from The Filling Station. This beer reminds me a lot of a light version of their Imperial IPA. It’s definitely a pale ale but leans ever so closely to an IPA. Big piney tropical notes on the nose, very hoppy aroma for a pale. Taste follows... lots of papaya, tropical fruit, bananas, and a semi-sweet malt back. Absolutely awesome pale ale.
