3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Pizza Port Ocean Beach. After a bunch of IPAs, this one tastes a little weak and malty with subdued fruit, melon, citrus. I’m sure it’s better before a bunch of hop monsters. Very decent and drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Pours a clear orange with a smaller, off-white head. Excellent sheety lacework. Nose brings herbal and squashy noble hop character with some fruity, melony NZ like hops. Taste is fruit juicy, melon flesh, jackfruit, butternut squash. Quenching and juicy. No apparent bitterness, no cheese, no nut skin astringency. Solid stuff. Weird English hop flavors I’m not used to in IPAs/APAs. Very good nevertheless.

I liked this a lot. Nice hoppy aroma with some malt sweetness. The flavor was a light hop, not to overpowering. Very easy drinking. Dry finish. A go to beer for the summer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The pour is a clear golden amber color with a nice white head and some sticky lacing.
S: A bit on the malty side with a lot of bread aromas. The aroma is light overall, but there are some hop notes. They seem to be mild citrus, straw, and some grass.
T: The flavor starts off fairly hop forward. Mostly citrus peel with a little bit of bitterness. Some grass and floral hop flavors are also there and the bread and malt provide the bulk of the flavor.
M: Light to medium in body with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Sort of underwhelming. Not really hoppy but not all that malty either.

This was a nice and clean pale ale with not much hoppiness to it. I drank it after the wet hop and it still wasnt very hoppy. Nice and refreshing and went well with a spicy pie.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden orange pour with a thin head. The nose is a little bit sweet with a distinct caramelly nose. There is a touch of light butterscotch in the caramel that I could definitely do without. A little bit of light grassiness to the hopping as well. There is a lingering caramel and a touch of sweetness as well. More caramelly than I typically prefer but it does have a decent balance of malt and hops. As it warms some lighter grapefruit citrus comes through.
