on tap at Stone Bistro. Hoppy aroma. The IBU is right there, almost an IPA, what would be conceivably an IPA years ago. Very decent drinkability.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Great appearance, clear copper in color with a lacy white head. The aroma is typical of a good San Diego pale ale, dank and citrusy with some resins. The flavor is great too, with just a slight sweet malt base and a big hop punch with grapefruit, orange rind, pineapple, and resins. Sticky on the mouthfeel with medium body and average carbonation. A very good pale ale overall.

Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate earthy hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

Cask at The Linkery SD. Orange, pine, grassy, biscuit hops aroma. Starts slighty sweet and oily but very quickly becomes dry and tightly bitter. It finishes with a long paprika and pepper spiciness. For such a light body this is pretty unique all around. Very enjoyable.

(On draught at beachwood bbq Long Beach). Pours clear copper with off-white head. Little carbonation. Aroma has bright citrus, light caramel and some bread. Taste is sweet with some sharp bitterness. Thinner bodied with oily texture. Bitter finish. Nice, easy drinking beer with lots of flavor.

Tap @ Parkway. Hazy orange-gold with a short white head leaving a coarse, medium lace. Fresh hop, pine, and toast nose. Medium body and carbonation. Toast, ganja, singed caramel, pine. Finish is long, bitter and astringent. A bit darker-tasting than I like my pales, but very good.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Stone. Pours a deep amber-red, clear with a nice white finger head which is very beautiful froth...lace is stringy and runs with only a little bit of stick. Aroma distinctly piney/spruce. Taste is true to nose, hop-forward, light-medium body, an excellent SD County Pale Ale. Finish is a tad astringent, but in a good way...saps the moisture in your mouth a tad, and you pucker at the bitter goodness. Very impressed with Green Flash these days...they know how to get mileage from their hops!

Lovely golden pale ale. Stronger & heftier than I would like for the style. More of an IPA than a Pale Ale, though maybe not bitter enough for a full-on west coast IPA. Nice Pale Ale, I could just have handled less (in terms of alcohol & fullness)
