3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2009 Bottle thanks to DuffManSW. Clear gold pour with a 1 finger, frothy white head. Biscuit, bread, a light caramel notes come out in the aroma with a light balance of citrus and pine. Definitely more malt forward in the flavor too. Thereís lots of biscuit and graham cracker with moderate hop bitterness and just a hint of phenol pepperiness. Thin body with lots of tingly carbonation.

Tap @ Hamiltonís Tavern. Pours a clear deep golden color with a one finger thick white head that left some spotty lacing. Nice nose of light hops, grass and cereal grains. Flavor was crisp and malty with a light hop bitterness.

12oz bottle from hophead22.....pours a mostly clear light amber brown with a thin wispy white soapy head..... aroma of bready malt and light citrus hops. not too much goin for it.....flavors are equally hop and malt based. citrusy hops meld with biscuity malts. slight bitterness in the finish. somewhat sweet in nature overall. medium carbonation and goes down pretty well.

Nice and clean flavor. This beer is on the upper end of pale ales in my opinion.

Bottle courtesy of Hophead22 -- thanks.
Didnít realize this was such a seldom-rated beer when I tried it -- interesting! Thanks for the ultra-local hookup.
Pours a nice copper with a foamy near-white head. Good citrus aroma, rich caramel malts coming through as well. Very nice. A bit of skunkiness in there too, unfortunately, but still, pretty impressive. Flavor is more non-descript. Yep, a pretty nice APA leaning toward amber ale.

On tap in Redlands, CA at the Royal Falconer. Pours a clear amber with a decent sized tan head. Citrus hop aroma with a fair amount of malt. Very nice flavor of citrus/pine hops with a slight bitterness in the finish. I really enjoyed this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clean aroma of citrus and pine as well as light biscuity malts. The flavor is more hops. Not over the top bitterness, just a nice hops profile of citrus and pine as well as a nice biscuity backbone. Soft lingering hoppy resins. Really nice APA.
