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.

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.

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

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep yellow. Nose is pine and sweet malts. Some yeast. Flavor is a sharp pine resin bitterness, sweet smooth malts. Reminds me of pliny at times. Very good Pale. Insanely drinkable. This could be my go to pale ... to bad they arenít in FL. I originally rated this as the IPA. From my notes, I didnít think that there was any way this was just a Pale. Impressive.

Bottled sample. Golden color, stable head, a nice soft flavor, nothing overdone. Some hops on initial drink, mellows alot, with malt coming through as well, nice balance, some pine, grass, pepper. Good one!
