3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gold color and slightly hazy with a few floating particles. The head mostly diminished. Floral hop aroma and a hint of butter rum. A well-balanced APA with moderate hop bitterness. A difficult and inferior encore to the Indica.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light amber hue with small head but good lacing, thin to medium-bodied. Pronounced piney hop aroma with undertones of butterscotch and french toast. Taste is more subdued than expected however the finish is aggressively hoppy. A bit too one-diminsional IMO. Not enough malt characteristics. Watery and fizzy mouthfeel, metallic feel. Ho Hum beer.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Medium amber with a medium lasting creamy white head. Mild pacific hops aroma, light pine. I thought this was quite watery in taste with a thin body. Aftertaste is bitter hops. Average.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy straw colored smell reminds me somewhat of a wheat beer. Thin lemon flavour as well as an unwelcome aftertaste much like an inferor wheat that I never like. Lost Coast lost the focus while making this Ale, thin palate unbalanced flavours and in my opinion a insult to the APA style, Not Recommended.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gold/copper color. Small head. Aroma is fruity (apricots and peaches) and a touch spicy. A medium bodied Pale Ale. Malts are mild, nutty and a touch sweet. Hops are slightly spicy and grapefruity. A milder flavored pale ale, more in the English style than the over-the-top West Coast style. Very smooth taste. It’s a very drinkable pale ale. Light and refreshing. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Why yes it is rather pale. Like lemon water. Bitter front but mellows out in the end with some malt. A good APA. Nothing spectacular, but a good combination to keep it interesting for a session beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear golden color with a small, white head. The aroma is a nice balance between the hops and malts. Medium body with medium carbonation, the flavor is nicely balanced up front, with a decent hop finish that has a touch of sweetness. This is a solid American Pale Ale, flavorful and highly drinkable but not over the top with hops. Nice.

Tap @ brewery. I thought this was an English Pale Ale. Light golden color. Malts dominate with some hop balance.
