No THIS is what a pale ale should be. I am still not sure it is a pale ale since it is so hoppy and more orange-golden in color than I’d expect. The NW hops (Cascade, Columbus, Amarillo) are perfectly balanced in this very easy drinking Amercan ale. Great! Great! Great!

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!

All you raters must be mad--this is my favorite Pale Ale, hands down, no contest. What else is there? It’s uncomplicated citrus and floral nose, easy drinking without being wimpy. To me - the perfect balance--it’s not a no flavor Pale Ale by any stretch but it’s also not an IPA labeled "Pale". Marin’s Pale lineup - the Mt Tam, IPA, and White Knuckle are a jab, uppercut, and knock out. Revisit this one boys, get it fresh!

MMMM another good Marin brewing company beer. I am really falling for this brewery. Pours with a thick white head that lasts forever. Has a cloudy brown hue. Mouthfeel is super smooth and flavor is full of hoppy goodness and strong malts with little to no bitterness.

Fantastic Pale Ale. Nice light amber coloring. Hoppy aroma. Slight hop bitterness. Light caramel malt flavor.

Only a PA huh? Maybe just by name. The smell is very IPA’ish which is very good IMO. Everything else about this brew is very well ballanced. Nice foam head on it that lasts. Taste, like the smell, leans a little more towards an IPA but not quite like the smell does. The hops are there in the taste but fade pretty quick. Very drinkable, esp. for a hop head.

Bottle pours a nice chopper color with white head. Very enjoyable pale ale. Nice floral, citrous and hoppy aroma and flavors.

22 oz bottle. Pours a amber golden clear. Nose is spicy hops. Flavor is bready, yeasty and clean. Excellent APA. Probably one of the best.
