brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Orange pour with a white head. Nose is very heavy on the solvent character. Pine Sol and lemon cleaner. Lots of grass, even more green apple, and some caramel sweetness. There’s a strong caramel sweetness and some bread. Quite a bit of solvent, pine, and lemon. Bitter pine and grass.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Tap at the brewpub. Rating #3. Clear copper/gold pour with a real nice white head that left some real nice lacing. Mild aroma, light hops and a bit of caramel. Flavor is nice, light bitterness and drinkable, decent. (2122)

badlizard (5537) - Berkeley, California, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Clear golden with almost no head. Very faint grain aroma with an earthy grainy taste (where’s the hops?) and a very light bitterness on the back end and a watery palate.

l1br4r14n (451) - Rancho Cucamonga, California, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Draft at brewery. Poured copper with a thin white head. Medium grassy and citrus hop aroma. Balanced caramel malt up front, bitter finish, lingering citrus hop flavor. Low carb, easy drinker.

illidurit (2172) - Petaluma, California, USA - DEC 20, 2009
Sampled on tap at the brewery. Golden color with a thin wet white head. Aroma is lightly grassy and citrusy, not very robust. Flavor is pale malty with a sort of spicy lemony hop character, if you can really call it ’character.’ Overcarbonated and weak. Thin, boring, typical crappy brewpub pale.

alexanderj (3339) - Branson, Missouri, USA - AUG 31, 2009
On tap a few weeks back, from this underated brewpub. Color was a dark amber. Aroma was strong on the floral and grapefruit; smelled to me like it was dry hopped. Flavor was the same and quite strong. Good stuff.

alagnak (467) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2009
On tap @ brewpub. Not much nose at all (came out REALLY cold). Nice balanced caramel malt up front and citrus hops finish. A little thin on the body side. Solid, quaffable APA.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 22, 2009
On tap at the brewpub as Peak Pale Ale: Transparent dark copper amber pour has a thin, spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty caramel malt and some fresh piny hops. Starts with good fullness and grainy toasty caramel sweetness with a grassy citrusy hop flavor before a drier, resiny bittersweet finish. A pretty decent APA that falls on the darker, more caramely side of the style.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Dogbrick (8681) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a slightly hazy orange/copper color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes steadily. Spotty lacing. Citrus and hops in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of hops, citrus and light malt. The finish is moderately hoppy and does not linger very long. Pretty average all around.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 12/20
Charlzm (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 4, 2008
On tap at brewery, 02/04/08. Golden in glass, thin skin of foam. Subtle, sweet, fruity aroma (apricot, peach). Parching pine flavor up front, refreshing grassy citrus finish. Some light, sweet malt flavor in there as well. Not bad.
