Marheb (2641) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Un corps moelleux et aérien qui fait changement des structures résineuses de la côte ouest. Agrumes et fruits tropicaux en harmonie, un peu de biscuit dans les malts, amertume docile, buvabilité suprême.

Tap at the brewery, 4S Ranch. Pours clear copper with a large, frothy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is citrus, fruity, and herbal hops with pale malt and apple esters. Flavor is fruity and citrus hops, light bitterness and malt with a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

Jimthechap (1850) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 25, 2014
As soon as I opened this beer, as well as the hiss, there was an immediate surge of resinous hops in my nostrils. Crikey. The body of the beer is orange amber with a puffy white head and another blast of herbal hoppiness when I poke my nose anywhere near the beer. It is strongly reminiscent of green spruce cones and redwood resin. Just glorious. The immediate impressions of the taste is that it isnt as massive as its aroma. It is gently carbonated and then those herbs come through with a slightly sweet stonefruit body but then they return with chlorophyll-like bitterness. I am not in the least disappointed. It’s a good exemplar of its style while retaining its individuality. It’s more herbal than other APAs and delightfully so.

jandd1983 (2887) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 23, 2014
On tap at the San Diego downtown brewpub. It poured a golden color with an off-white head. The aroma was of malt, fruits, caramel, citrus and some bread. The taste was light to medium sweet with fruit and caramel and a nice bitter finish. Decent.

beer-yum (685) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 21, 2014
A delightful drink that ticks all the "Pale Ale" boxes. The enticing aroma is backed up with a perfectly balanced body and a restrained bitter finish.
