3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty standard pale ale yet really pleasant and refreshing when really fresh, as my sixer is. Pours a semi-hazy copper color, full creamy head. Moderately hoppy aroma with a lemony citrus and herbal nose, with a background of caramelized malts. Flavor is balanced to a T. Full rounded malts, crisp herbal hops, semi-dry finish. Enjoyable sessionish pale ale and a neutral partner to a wide variety of foods.

12 oz. bottle into pint glass. Amber, clear, low carbonated pour with average white head that fades pretty quickly. Hops and some malt on the aroma, sweet and sour citrus hops. Flavor: strange hoppyness, mellow but almost peppery, strangely off-balanced. Palate: average, medium to light bodied, with lightly carbonation but a slight tingling.. Overall: I need to re-rate this because I liked it a lot last night, when I had it for the first time; it just tastes strange now (could be the whiskey I had before the beer affecting it).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at GOBF ’08. Pours a clear golden color with a slight reddish tint. A foamy, off-white head sticks around for a while, leaving some spotty lacing behind. The nose is dry, showing pale malts and cereal grains along with a moderate helping of mildly floral hops. Flavors basically follow suit, with the ever so slight emergence of some citrus character and a bit of toastiness. The palate is on the thin side of medium-bodied, with a clean, dry finish. Its a decent beer. Overall. pretty non-descript and boring, but very drinkable.

Draught: Poured a copper color with a white head. The aroma is slight hops and grain. The taste is similar hops with a soft grain and malt.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear amber color, with a medium foamy light tan head. The aroma was very subtle in this, had some crisp grain and mild hops, but not much else going on here. No real malt presence to speak of yet. The flavor was a decent mixture of hops and the now-present malts. Gave it a little caramel flavor, with some hop bitterness in the finish. Pretty standard for a pale ale. Session beer at best.

pours out an orange color with a smaller amount of head. aroma was pleasant with a nice amount of hop a sweetness. flavor was your typical APA, but had a very weak finish.

Looks, smells, and tastes like what it is: a thinly veiled Anheuser Busch attempt at an "exotic" pale ale. Not pretty. Three sips and down the drain. Aloha!

Bottle from Total Wine. My first beer from Hawaii. Pours out a nice orange color without much of a head. Smell is sweet and somewhat hoppy with some nice hoppy smells too. Some citrus flavors too, little bit of orange. Taste is smooth and easy to drink. Something that you could consume in large amounts on a summer day. Not bad stuff really..

On-tap at Jake’s Del Mar. Pours amber with a thin white head, some lace. Smells of mellow, sweet hoppiness, some malts as well. Tastes citrusy sweet, not so much hoppy citrus, just citrus. Some caramelly malt flavors and a bit metallic as well. Medium body, crisp carbonation. Tasty
