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!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. A more or less clear one, dark golden in color and topped by a white head. Peaches, pine cones and some malt notes in the aroma, really pleasant. The flavor equally so, some bitterness balances the sweetness, and there is also peaches and some pine cones. Medium body, very soft on the palate. Pleasant finish. Definitely a beer I could have a few of. 130806

On draft at Marin taproom. Clear amber with a tiny, dense, off white head. Aroma of citrus, toasty bread, light caramel and fruity. Flavor is toasty malt and caramel with a firm hop bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation. Excellent pale ale, lots of mellow malt character with just enough hops for balance.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2013 Golden crisp color on the pour from the bottle. I was able to pick up light citrus and sweet aromas. Taste is very clean, crisp and smooth throughout the drink. Only draw back would be very lightly hopped and would have liked a bit more hoppy taste. Other than that, I loved this pale ale and will be going back to it for a go to style beer!

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2013 Not bad for a pale ale. This one’s got some decent hop flavor which is more than I can say for most pales.
