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."

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.

On tap at Fresh Craft, I was surprised to see it and knew I better order it because I don’t think it is bottled. Light yellow orange color, good head. Smells like lemon oil to me, citrus hops. Taste is hoppy and yet is unmistakeable as a pale ale, the slight biscuit flavor from the malt lets me know. I liked this and it was clearly differentiated from an IPA to my taste buds.
Serving type: on-tap

This was tasted at the brewery. The ale poured a clear gold color with a small head. Good ale but not special. The carbonation was soft with a smooth finish. This brewery I was able to take a tour. It is an impressive brewery and are looking at coming East. They would not say where.
