Draft. Pale hazy golden color with no head. Very fruity - apricots and a little lemon. Some balt, a lightly bitter finish, but fruit dominates. Easy drinking.

Nice amber hue, small lacey head. Sweet malty backbone, citric and veggie flavor. Biiterness not overwhelming but well balanced. East drinking beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy golden color with a fluffy off white head. Light cookie dough, mild grapefruit and celery aroma. Spanish peanuts and cookie dough flavors. Reminds me of an APA but lighter and lacking malt depth.

Cloudy bright gold. Nose hoppy, citrus and pine. Taste is pretty average, cirtic burst up front, good malts backing it up, somewhat toasty and nutty. Do like the palate, has a nice, stickyk creaminess to it.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2011 Head was a frothy white with some lacing while drinking. The hops were balanced with a mild maltiness. About average for the Pale Ales that I have had. Had another from Total Wine and More in April 2011. The color was a hazy gold with a head that laced down the glass. The pale ale was weeak in the floral hops and lacked character. It had a light body and alcohol was well balanced with the malts.

This is just your basic generic pale ale. Nothing lacking, nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is not one of my everyday drinkers but a nice change. Light in body, citrussy, with an an orange and tea like flavor. It doesn't bite like most California pales but it's tastey and refreshing.

One of my favorite APA's. Spicy, citrusy hops flavoring is complex but not overwhelming. Hints of orange with a peachy, malt follow. Carbonation is perfect - I'd really like to try this one on tap.
