Part of the sampler at the brewery near Disneyland. This was probably my least favorite of the bunch. The palate was all over the place and there wasnít much hop to it. It left me with a strange aftertaste. Probably wonít try this one again.

Draught at Craft Heads. Cloudy ass with a fine head. Dirty looking. Dirty hop nose, catpiss, not so good. Again dirty hop flavor, a bit raunchy, with nice hops but not balanced or refined. Very bitter finish. Disappointing.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a draft into a pint glass at Oggiís in Santee, Calif. About a finger of head when I got it. Color was on the brighter side of orange. Light white lacing on the top. Hardly any film on the sides of the glass.
Smelled typical pale ale notes, albeit light. Bread, grass and grainy. Also some light lemon citrus hops at the very end.
Taste was similar to the nose with bread, grass, lemon citrus hops and some grains coming in there. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Pretty average taste overall.
Medium body. Watery texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish.
Just an average pale ale overall. There are plenty of better beers on the market. Skip it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A: The beer pours a light amber color with a small off-white head.
S: Lots of citrus hop notes to the nose with a big of pine and grass. A bit on the sweet side with plenty of bread, toasted malt, and some toffee malt aromas.
T: A pretty harsh bitterness to the beer which just isnít pleasant. Piney hops with some grapefruit and grapefruit peel. Some malt flavor to it, definitely a bit of toast and bread, but not much sweetness.
M: Medium in body with a moderate to high carbonation.
O: The aroma wasnít too bad, but the bitterness was just too abrasive.
