Draft. Orange, tea in color. No head. Very hoppy, apricot-orange. Evokes reminders of Bells Hopslam. Well done. Sampled @ American Beer Fest in Boston.

On tap at Stone. Clear orange amber with fluffy white head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Pine and citrus tastes, caramel, and a huge bitter bite witha a clean refreshing crisp finish. Yum.

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Solana Beach. Aroma of big coriander. Appears a medium-light copper, with some effervescence, and with a nice head. Flavor is of a good malt base, supported by big piney fresh hops. Palate is medium to medium-thick, and appropriate. Overall, this tastes like the Experimental Ale gravity’d up a bit.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 18, 2006
Tap @ Solana Beach. The chalkboard said "Mike’s RIP Pale Ale". Clear brown-amber body, frothy white head. Sharp citru srind aroma. Pine/grapefruit with the usual caramel malt in teh background. Big hoppy flavor - orange, lime, resinous pine over pale malt. The finish features a lingering bitter plant stem + grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel. Wonderfully balanced stuff!

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 1, 2005
Pours with an amber body topped by a thick, lasting head with lots of lacing. It’s slightly sweet and malty yet bitter and hoppy with notes of pine and a touch of pepper. Medium bodied, smooth and a touch dry.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUL 9, 2005
(Draft: Pizza Port in Solana Beach, CA) Potent grapefruit hoppiness in the nose, but it’s accompanied by a vegetable aroma that is a little unpleasant, but not strong enough to overpower or ruin the grapefruit aroma. The flavor is very bitter and hoppy, showing a lot of grapefruit. The lightly sweet malt base is fairly mild, allowing the hops to take center stage, though I think this beer is hoppy enough to demand center stage whether the malt agreed to it or not. Fairly dry on the palate, medium bodied. Hazy, dark golden color. Off-white head is small on the pour and settles to a halo fairly quickly. Overall, this is one hoppy beer, not as hoppy or bitter as Ponto or Swami’s, but approaching them. The vegetable aroma is the only flaw in an otherwise solid beer.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - JUL 3, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 On tap@Port Solana: Cloudy pale golden color with a small (bar pour) white head. Aroma is light pineapple and citrus. Flavor starts fruity sweet then some grapefruit, a light hop bite on the tongue and a lingering citrus finish. Tangy, creamy palate.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUN 23, 2004
draft at solana beach: Yellow brown color with medium white head. Aroma is full of hops, maybe a touch of sweetness, lots of pine. Flavor is very bitter, all about the bitterness. Is there any malt in this? A good brew, not at all balanced, but does the hops thing well. Nice full palate.
