Thanks Tim, pours pale gold with a nice rocky white head that lasts. Aroma and flavor are much the same. Grassy, toasted malts with nice bright hop notes of resinous pine.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Piney, catty aromas from a medium yellow body with a thin white head. Nice clean malt taste with balanced light hop bitterness which isn’t as strong as the aromas seemed to suggest. Finishes clean and slight sweet with an orange/citrus aftertaste. Easy drinking but tasty and interesting too.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Outstanding Pale Ale, not too bitter, smooth, excellent barley malt taste. Slight citrus. Spicy beginnings, barley kicks in nice malt barley aftertaste. So many pale ales dump in the bitters like grapefruit and don’t blend out the alcohol. This is a true pale ale. Hits the tongue better than first smell, first aroma not a good blend of citrus, barley and hops. After aroma through nose pleasant. Fresh, solid brewery upcoming.

Tap at brewpub and bottle from their awesome mix 12 pk-June 2012-pours lite orange with a smooth sudsy white head. nose is lite floral hops clean cereal-smells more like a hoppy golden ale than a pale. hops are more punchy on tap than in the bottle however, most everything holds together in both samples as being the same. flavors of crisp floral hop notes, clean cereal, lite bitterness more hop flavor than bitterness here. a very solid little pale here-lots of hops yet lite and crisp without big bitterness. good stuff!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp, slightly hazy copper coloured body with a thin off-white head that dies fairly quickly. Aroma of fresh resiny and citrus hops with some caramel and rye behind the scenes - a bit earthy too. Medium-bodied; Nice resiny and citrus hop flavours at first with some rye, specialty grains, caramel and figs noticeable in the taste. Aftertaste is lighter, grassier, a touch sweet and a bit earthy - with the good subtle hop notes finishing it off. Overall, a nice lighter APA with some pleasant hop notes, a touch of grass and a little sweetness. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Super Jr Market in San Diego, California on 06-May-2012 for US$2.19 sampled at home in Washington on 15-May-2012.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear, light orange color with a decent frothy head. Light hoppy aroma. Nothing too overpowering. Sweet tangy after thought as well. Dry, hoppy finish. Nice balance between the grapefruit and the hops. Decent beer, but I would still go with their IPA.

Poured from the tap it has an amber color in the glass. Taste is nutty with some hops. The finish has some mild bitterness but a good balance.

A solid pale ale. Medium bitterness. Maltiness is strong here. I am starting to prefer the single hop pale ales. I can see this as a summer beer for the BBQ.
