12oz bottle via the beer swap box! - Thanks! - Pours golden with a fluffy white head that fades back to a ring but laces from there down. Beautiful citrus aroma of orange blended with many floral notes as well and a little grapefruit even. Flavor is quite hoppy as well with notes of orange, grapefruit, floral accents, and light grains. Crisp, clean and refreshing on the palate. This is as fine of a pale ale as Iíve tasted. Very nice..

Poured a orange-tinged copper color with a big cratered head. Very nice orange-buddy citrus nose. Very citric bite in the flavor, too, like spiced oranges, very nice dry finish.

bottle: smells straight up like a bouquet of flowers. flavors of cirtus, mainly orange and grapefruit. a complimenting balance of hoppy bitterness. a tad too dry for me....but all in all u canít go wrong with humboldt brewing.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - AUG 11, 2006
12oz bottle poured a clear copper/gold color with a small white head. Aroma has a strong citrus hop character with a slightly sweet carmel malt note. Taste has the perfect bitterness for a pale ale and a great hoppy finish that is good and dry. Overall a great American Pale that should definitely be on the top 25 list.

Light amber color, small white head. Very flowery aroma, and a very nectar type flavor. Great overall, and really fresh and crisp flavors.

Dark gold with a small off-white head. Hoppy nose with floral and citrus notes. Spicy-floral lightly hoppy flavor with a better hop bite in the aftertaste.

Pours light amber with a large-bubbled white head. Very floral and woody nose, with a hint of the same honey hop aroma found in the IPA Nectar. Citrus and pepper are in there, as well. The flavor is more floral than that of any other beer Iíve had. The middle is kind of bland, but still good; it almost tastes like a very well-made lager until the hops come back in the end, bitter and piney. I like it.
