3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Apparently a American "strong" pale ale. Backlogged rating. Dont remember much about it, ergo it couldnt have been mind-blowing. Light gold-colored beer with a good amount of hop character. Good for a pint with pizza. That is all.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22/11/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bevuta al Thanksgiving Day. Dorata, pesca, schiuma bellissima, molto abbondante e straordinariamente persistente. Al naso aroma intensissimo, un bouquet esplosivo di frutta esotica e pesca con note erbacee, davvero impressionante. In bocca Ť luppolata decisa ma bilanciata, secca, di facile beva, quasi perfetta. Corpo medio, buona carbonazione. Profumatissima, una meraviglia.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask at the Tap Room in PB . Was expecting a smooth Pale Ale, along the lines of Fire Rock, Stone, Sierra Nevada, etc. This was almost like a light IPA. Aroma is citrus, hops and even a little soapy. Appearance is a thick, murky, opaque gold with a soft pillow of white head. Hits the palate hard, but then smooths right out. Might be the cask effect, as casks tend to smooth everything out. Hoppier than expected and for me, thatís always a good thing.
