3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In a flight on 13th March 2014 at the Back Bay Bar inside Wholefoods store in Newport Beach. Clear amber pour this hoppy brew hit the spot nicely. I don’t usually like over hopped or citrus flavoured brews but this seemed just about right in every aspect, certainly bitter but not overly so. One of the best Pale Ales I had during my whirlwind visit to California. My British palate really took to this and I would have had a pint, but I was on a mission to try as many beers as I could before the wife dragged me away (to a near-by Yard House).

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Pours a dark yellowish orange color with white head. Fair hop character in the aroma, mostly piney earthy but quite a bit of malt aroma as well. Flavor is dominated by caramel, toasty malt...hops take a back seat. Slightly citrusy in the finish. Doesn’t drink bad but not well balanced.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Draft at Hay Merchant, 4/22/14
Aroma: The aroms is grassy, with some citrus, and pale malts
Appearance: It pours a clear gold-orange color, with an off-white head, and heavy lace
Flavor: The flavor is similar to the nose component-wise, with a clean and bitter finish
Palate: This one has a creamy feel, an average carbonation, and a dry finish
I thought this was a pretty nice pale ale. It wasn’t an amazing beer, but it was a nice west coast hop feel to it. Solid stuff.
