Orange/amber colored pour with a white head. Strong floral and orange hop aroma, some peach sweetness, a bit of bread, and perhaps some grass. Very light pine to the aroma, too. There’s a mild sweetness of bread to the flavor. Plenty of pine and citrus bitterness, nice floral notes, lots of grass, and a dry finish. Good grapefruit and orange peel notes.

Bomber shared by Forgetfu (thanks Bill!) poured a clear orange amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, grapefruit, earthiness, light orange and light grassiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, grapefruit, orange zest, light earthiness and light grassiness with a crisp dry lingering bitter grapefruit finish.

Bottle @ Ratman’s. Pours a clear dark orange appearance with an off white head. Über spicy, garlic, onion, hoppy, herbal hoppy aroma. A bit chewy, cracker, grapefruity, spicy flavor. Fun stuff.

GT2 (8283) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 16, 2013
651mL thanks to dfroms. Pours a brilliantly clear orange. Larger off-white head. Very thick lacing. Nose at first is all Lipton iced lemon tea, sweet tea, opening up to white grape juice, something like red apple, something like custard. Taste is spicy, some melons, chalk, full bitterness, fresh cantaloupe. Palate is juicy, not too dense, no astringency. Good.

I once saw Ween play at the Fillmore; it was awesome. On tap. Clear bright orange with a fluffy white head. Nice strong grassy and citrus aroma and taste with some light resiny notes and a grassy finish. Not bad.

jazz88 (2546) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle. A deep rich golden orange color with a nice foamy white head. I was impressed with the hop flavor and feel of this on the palate. It’s hard to believe this is only a 5% abv beer. For what this beer is (style and objectives), this is excellent.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2013 Good pale ale love San Francisco and this brewery. Pours a clear dark orange appearance with an off white head. herbal hoppy aroma.

craftycarl21 (2208) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle thanks to Dan. Spicy and very tea-like on the nose, with grassy bitterness and hints of melon and grapefruit showing through a bit more in the flavor. Dry, herbal and floral, with secondary fruit aspects. Crisp and clean. Very nice.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Appearance: Pours a clear amber gold with a decent thin cap of white and white lacing left behind.

Aroma: Fresh citrusy hops, orange peel, light bread dough, bread crust.

Taste: Juicy hops, bitter piny hops, dry toasty malt, finishes very clean.

Mouthfeel: Thin, juicy, average carbonation.

Overall: A very tasty Pale Ale. It’s one of my favorite styles when the hops do the talking and the malt does the walkin’.
