Bottle from Vons. Nose is somewhat sweet with a bit of hoppiness and a biscuity note. Understated dry hoppiness up front with a pretty strong malt foundation. Not super bitter, but not sweet either. Tasty pale ale.

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.

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.

Typical if uspectacular version of a California Pale Ale - light golden color, decent citrussy hop nose and palate, very light malt and body.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle from local grocery store. Pours a translucent brass color with a small white head that has fair retention. The aroma is soft and indistinct with mild grains, grass and a hint of melons. The flavor, unlike the nose, is fairly assertive, with complex citrus--I get oranges, mangoes and papaya. The malt base is bready and compliments the hops nicely. The palate is a bit on the lighter side which is appropriate for the style, and the carbonation is lively. Finishes short and dry. Overall: Iím impressed, this pale ale rocks.

Italian bread and a little yellow fruit aroma. Flavor is not so hot; cardboard, light butter, dried oregano hops. This beer kinda sucks.

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.

Good stuff this. Clean modern PA with an excellent cut of grassy minerally zingy hops. Not heavy dumb or sweet, just ultra refreshing. Really hit the spot.
