2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a bomber purchased @BevMo in SF. The price was marked down, so they wanted to move this product. Pours nicely with good color and head as mentioned by other reviewers. A decent example of the style, but not in the top half of my list. I visited the Lost Coast pub in Eureka several years ago and I look forward to trying this and other brews at the source in the near future. Nice Humbolt artwork on the label.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks Hayduke! This beer pours a hazy golden hue with an uneven fluffy white head that has excellent retention. There isn’t a big aroma but it is grainy. Hops lead the flavor with grapefruit along with honey and sweeter passion fruit. Honey and pepper can be tasted. As the beer warms the hops are more pronounced in the aroma enhancing their impact on the flavor. Grass is also in the finish. A nice and well balanced beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Lost Coast. Pours golden, almost lager looking. Light aroma of lemony malts and light citrus. Flavor is fairly malty all the way through the thinner body, Chinook creeps through a bit before ending if somewhat of a watery finish. Not the best, but not a pour out.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Ledgers. We’ve had this one for a while ~4 months. Probably not the best idea for a pale, but the beer fridge has been full for a while. Very nice palate, even hop flavor, and nicely balanced. I liked it and may buy again in a summer month.

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.
