4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazed golden color with a sticky white head. Intense grapefruit aroma to this. It’s very citric. Very little malt to it all. There’s some pine, maybe a bit of pineapple. A bit of weed, too. The flavor is just as much intense grapefruit as the aroma had with a bit more pine bitterness and pineapple. The marijuana is there, too. Just a hint of pale malt flavor. Light body, medium carbonation, and easy to drink.

Growler… Clear, deeply golden ale with nice orange highlights and a small, creamy, white head. Musky, earthy, grapefruity nose. Medium-bodied and raspy with soft carbonation. Lots of lupulin flavor, but the bitterness is not overbearing. Lengthy, grassy, dry finish. Growler courtesy of WeeHeavySD!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Carlsbad. Pours with a mildly hazed golden hued body with a frothy white head that lasts. Aromas are of tangerine, pomelo, citrus, herbaceous and dank. All hops. Flavors are sweet fruit, citrus, herbaceous, dank and a bit minty. Low to no malt character which is fine by me. Fresh tasting. Lively bubbles and dry. Good, but are very hoppy 6.1% beers American Pale Ales these days?

Pours a clear gold w/ slight orange tinge. White head. I had the beer after a Poormans so take that into account. Citrus, hint of caramel malt, slight grapefruit. I thought it was a pretty light and refreshing pale ale. Easy drinking and tasty.
