COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The original Extra Pale Ale, this is the one that started it all. Our first brew was introduced in 1989 in Golden Gate style kegs. We have stayed true to our beginnings and still brew it the way we did back then. A bright golden hued ale with a medium body and a crisp spicy /floral hop character and very mild bitterness. This unfiltered ale has a pleasing mouth feel and remains our most popular brew. This beer goes with everything and every occasion.

Fatehunter (1399) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Thin head on a hazy, medium straw colored body. Lots of bubbles coming up. The aroma is rich malt with the slightest citrus. Mild bitter start, medium malt sweetness in the middle, and a long dry bitter finish. Great balance and depth. Smooth texture, moderate carbonation and medium body. A better than average pale ale.

Bottle from Katsuragawa Aeon mall. Cloudy gold, small white head. Aroma has biscuit, hops, floral notes. Light and smooth flavour. Definitely grew on me as it went on.

Hop_Hedonist (260) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2014
Quality pale ale - had several years ago now revisited - decent body - slightly more biscuit malt than herbal hops - readily available at the local bottlo so a real go-to beer - easy drinker - yep, enjoyed.

Cerveja gostosa. Pouco amargor, o amargor é bem discreto. Não vale tomar novamente, pois o gosto parece um pouco de uma pilsen. Veio na assinatura mensal do Onbeer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Salmoniform (1001) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Golden hue with creamy white head that dissipated to a ring & suspended particles. Aroma is straw, spicy hops, pine, sulphur. Mouthfeel is good with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a hop bitterness and a slight metallic finish. Overall this brew is so so.

Smooth pale ale with a fruity finish. Light aroma, light orange in appearance. Probably was ok to call it "extra" when it was released, however, it is actually a mild pale ale by today's standards. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange, honey. Fruit salad, cake, herbal hops, grapefruit peel, mild bitter finish. Quite light for an extra, but refreshing little fruity pale ale.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2014
A) with a vigorous pour produced a thick white foam cap that fades quickly to just a smear on top. The color is straw with some orange highlights. A bit hazy S) smells slighty citrusy T) tastes of citrusy hops with a yeasty or bready ending MF) A bit thin around the edges Overall I thought that this beer doen’t live up to the style of pale ale. It needs more hop character and the color was more to a pils then to a pale ale. On the other hand this is a good convert beer for our junk swelling brothers. Also to me this is a good summer beer, flavorful and light perfect for grass cutting or firing up our lump charcoal grills. Have a good day

Homer321 (2136) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Draft. Nose is lemon with some toast. Pour is light gold with a white head that laces well on the glass. Taste is slightly dirty with a pithy bitterness. Not really much going on in terms of hop flavor. Just ok. Kinda turns soapy as I drink more.

If you’re talking Left Coast Pale Ale’s - this better be brought up, otherwise you’re not having the right conversation.

I’m not sure what the difference is between an IPA, APA, and an EPA. This one had a unique flavor though, so maybe that is it.
