Copper in color pours in with a nice head. Good solid pale ale with hoppy flavor. but yet too malty for my taste

Malty nose, great pour, nice copper color. Citric properties in the palate with definite traces of Cascade hops in the finish.

Orange tinted amber, fairly carbonated, and with a thin carbonated cream head. The hop nose was quite tangy--at first leading me to suspect amarillo hops. A definite sweet, fruity, and citric pungence as well--via hop and malt intermixing. The flavor is correspondingly of sweet, tangy hops with a definite fruity and citrus character. Impressive for an EPA--if that’s what it really is.

A decent brew overall. Lacking abit in flavor and aroma - but makes for a nice session beer.

Delicious sweet malt/floral hops bouquet. Burnt malt flavor followed by a somewhat empty finish: salty and weak (the finish, that is. The beer is pretty decent).

Copper, like a SNPA with annoying astringency. Could benefit from dry hops.

On tap Berkeley. Copper color. Sweet with an astringent flavor, didn’t enjoy it.

Tap. Dark golden copper color. Lots of hops in the aroma and malty flavor and body.

I really liked this beer -- very malty. It almost completely lacked any hoppy bitterness though. If you don’t like bitter, you’ll love this beer.
