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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours with a clear golden hued body and a lasting white head. Aromas are hop forward, fruit, spicy, dank. Sweet/tropical fruit with a nice grainy/bready maltiness. Flavors are show a sweet bready quality (not actually a sweet beer in the slightest, just the impression of sweet malt), grassy, fruity, tropical fruit. Finishes dry with lively carbonation. Great little beer on tap. Very sessionable.

Has a pretty good hop aroma. Looks fine. The flavor is hoppy, but certainly not overly so, a pretty good balance, although maybe a bit more malt at times than I like. Still pretty solid.
