22oz bottle poured a clear pale/gold color with a small white head. The aroma had light citrus and pine hops with some sweet caramel malts. The taste was somewhat spicy and an average bitterness with a good malt profile. Had a dry spicy hop finish with some grainy notes.

Solid APA. Pours clear copper with a good off-white head. Nice aroma of malt, hops, and wood. Lots of citrus and hoppy bite upf front that mellows into malty sweetness. Nice beer. One of the better ones in this category.

Bottled. The body was dark gold or medium orange depending on the light. The white head was thick and frothy. The aroma was grapefruit with some caramel and almonds. There was also a hint of tobacco. The taste was lots of grapefruti with a bit of salt and some toffee. A decent APA.

From a 22 oz. brown bomber bottle with a short blurb and serving suggestions on the back of label, no bottled/freshness date. Poured a partially cloudy reddish and golden hued orange with a foamy white head. Aromas of pine, flowers and lemon citrusy with a bready maltiness at the edges. A crisp, lightly textured and smooth light bodied mouthfeel, good APA drinkability. Hop tastes are upfront, pine mixed with a lemony citrus, a smooth hoppiness that balanced by toasted grains and a sweet bready maltiness, there is a light alcohol warmth in the palate and a dry lemony and grainy finish. A very enjoyable APA from Marin, balanced tasting and very quaffable.

Nice thick yellow orange color with huge head. Nose of light hops. Good hop hit up front with a well balance of malt to compliment. Like many said before, a little tropical fruit tone along with the the citrus tones. Great clean finish.

Sammy (10783) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2006
A simple easy drinking American pale. Understated hops, but you can enjoy the aroma. Very light mouthfeel. Orange with tons of foam. Citrus mouthfeel, a tad drying finish

This is one of the freshest pale ales I’ve ever had. Great balance of hop and malt. Round maple notes and ash bottom. Pineapple and mango. Bursting with freshness. Possibly the pinnacle of pale ale pursuits!

Bomber. Small head with a nice orange mango thing going on tastewise. There’s a bit of a dry ash taste which is tasty. Mmm fresh West Coast hops in NY. Life is good.
