SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 11, 2005
Cask at O’Briens. Rests clear, pale amber in the glass with a thin whitish head and a little lace. Aroma is primarily citrus and pine hops with a little spice. Nice mellow maltiness in the flavo brings a little fruity sweetnessr, but again this is dominated by the hops, lemon, grapefruit and pine abound. Smooth cask mouthfeel with mild carbonation. Pleasant.

beerguy101 (5287) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 29, 2005
On tap and cask at Pizza Port Solana Beach. Tap - Light gold color. Small white foamy head. Aroma is floral hops and citrus, orange. A light to medium bodied Pale Ale. Malts are fruity and sweet, touches of orange and citrus. Hops are floral, piney and grapefruity. Lighter [pale ale, but it has a lot of flavor and a nice hop profile. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertatse is slightly bitter. Cask - Larger head. Aroma has even more grapefruity hops. They also appear more in the taste as well. Nice soft carbonation. Fuller mouthfeel. Malts seem a little softer as well. I think I like the cask version better. It seems to have a lot more flavor.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Lightly hazed pale golden hue. Fragrant, fruity, hoppy orangey aroma. Hoppy fruity palate, fairly sweet at first, light and easy, decent bitter grapefruit bite in the finish. Lingering fresh orange aftertaste. Good summer afternoon hop nectar.

DarkElf (3035) - La Jolla, California, USA - MAY 8, 2005
(Draft: O’Brien’s in San Diego, CA) Another in an almost bewildering array of pale ales from the Pizza Port breweries, unless a side-by-side tasting is available, they’re becoming indistinguishable over time. This one is moderately flavorful pale ale, lightly sweet, orangy citrusy, moderately hoppy, only mildly malty. Sweet, orange citrus nose is quite aromatic, enticing and probably the best part of this beer. Light to medium body, fairly clean on the palate. Light golden in color, and slightly hazy in appearance. Carbonation bubbles are few and far between, but absolutely huge in size. Average size white head.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Pours with a golden body topped by a thin head with little lacing. It’s bitter and hoppy with slight grapefruit and pine notes and touch of sweetness. Smells and tastes like fresh hops. Light to medium bodied, smooth and a touch dry.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - MAY 1, 2005
On cask@Port Solana: Chill haze pale lemon yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is citrus with a wiff of pineapple. Flavor starts lightly sweet with some grapefruit and pine and finishes with a light orange rind aftertaste. Smooth creamy palate. Nice pale.
