3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pouring with a hazy honey color this newcomer starts with a beautiful vanilla/cookie nose and a rocky head. First sips give a nicly hopped charactor, a fair amount of malt, and an iteresting grassy/herbal note, with the cookie reasserting its self in the finnish. Sightly dissapointed in the lack of citrus that is chararistic of the style but pleasently made up for it in the end. A very drinkable beer.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma and the appearance were both fantastic. Great orange color with nice white head. the aroma was wonderfully hoppy, lots of dry hopping going on here. but the flavor was too hoppy. i am a hophead and i had a hard time finishing the 22 oz. bottle. there was very little malt to balance all those hops out and left me quite dry and bitter.

Enough bitter and hops to kill a small horse, but where was the malt? About as balanced as a hippo and a guinea pig on a see saw.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good citric crisp California pale ale, honey, lemon, malt background lingers well. Smooth and mellow after a few sips. Well balanced.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This 5.4% alcohol by volume pale ale pours with a hazy, orange-caramel color and produces a peach-colored and very stiff foam head. In the nose, this ale is flowery, with a hint of apricot fruit and light diacyl butteriness. In flavor, this dry-hopped beer does present some stone fruit flavor, a great deal of woodiness, and it ends very dry with a lingering bitter finish. Brewed by Bayhawk Ales, Inc., of Irvine, California.
