Enjoyed on draft at the OB brewpub. This beer is great in the can, but that much better fresh on draft. Big citrusy, west coast hop aroma embodied in a golden orange brew topped with whipped white head. Perfect hop balance with malt backbone to boot. Clean finish with lingering hop perfection. Relatively high alcohol content for a Pale Ale is well masked by malt and hops. One of the best pales in the country.

This beer is becoming one of my favorite pale ales. The unique flavor is that of a traditional PA but with sweet under currents. Very well made and complex brew.

Thick creamy white head on top of a nice amber color. Aroma is slight hops (might be a little cold) and a little malt. Flavor is nice and spicy hops and good malt backbone. Great version of a pale ale.

Orange/amber color with a large tiny bubbled white head. Aroma bigs hops with lots of citrus and some herbs. Flavor is peppery and spicy but nicely balanced with caramel sweetness. Long sweet finish with lots of residual bitterness.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 ounce can in pint glass. Bright copper with lasting beige head and lace. Fresh hop, citrus and bread aroma. Exceptionally well balanced flavors of malt sweetness, mild fruitiness, hop bitterness, and, best of all, hop flavor. Medium body and carbo. Good enough to drink often and in large quantities. Excellent.

wow. Just goes to show you, you canít judge a brew by itís container. This is like that lil whitekwhatever from belgium that comes in that ol petite can. This is hugely hoppy, but has immense flavour to it. More so than any of the sierraís or others Iíve had. Lotís on the swish. Ripe grapefruits, malts, creme, berries, and a touch of barely and mint. Very entertaining.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2008 Had this one for the first time at a tasting a few months back. I was surprised at how flavorful it was since I am not used to drinking such full-flavored beer from a can. One of my current favorites. Nice hoppy flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a pint glass with a burnt hazy amber colour with a medium white creamy head. Nose of grapefruit hops and sweet malts. Initial taste is softly carbonated that pours over the palate with a delicate touch of caramel. Balancing on the finish with sharp bitter hops and light red berry. Smooth finish. Good palate duration. Good head retention and lacing of the glass. Body is light to medium and very drinkable. Refreshing and tasty american pale that shows this style can be very enjoyable. Nice job!
