Fatehunter (1100) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Off the tap at the brew pub. Thin head with medium straw colored body. The aroma is great: grapefruit and lemon. The taste is smooth with a good dose of malt and moderate bitterness. The texture is crisper with moderate carbonation and medium body. It’s a nice, easy drinking ale and flavorful.

ElGaucho (2161) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle. Really odd pistachio aroma with no hops in the nose. Crystal clear dark gold. Thin white head. Very dry without the perfumy fruity tastes that I like in an APA. Just ok. Another brew I bought because Draft magazine rated it highly only to be disappointed.

Nice dry hop aroma. Session able at 5.4% abv very balanced and clean beer. True to the style of an American Pale Ale. Nice touch with the mount hood hops.

Draft at Firestone Public House in Sacto. Pours amber with an off-white head. Nose is malt and light citrus. Flavor is maly, grain, pine, with medium body. Earthy finish. Decent.

Just nothing exciting in this one. Pale lemon tangerine pour with a small ivory head. Slight dusty citrus, caramel malt; and honey. Thinner mouthfeel. Meh.

FROM NOTES: August 7, ’12 On tap, poured into a half-yard at The Yardhouse-San Jose. A: Strong citrus hops with notes of grapefruit and orange rind with some sweet malts joining in to balance. Not a lot of complexity or depth, but still pleasing. A: Poured a light orange/amber with a thin tan head that left decent spots of lacing down the glass. T: Malt forward but with strong earthy, almost grassy hops. The malt is not overly sweet or caramely, and it has a nice roasted, bready flavor to it. Faint pepper in the finish. P: Light bodied with a very thin, watery texture. Finishes bittersweet with a dry, very faint lingering bitterness on the palate. O: Good drinking and refreshing enough. Flavors are crisp and clean, wish there were more hops.

Rating from memory. On tap at Beachwood BBQ, Seal Beach. Roasted malt, grass, citrus rind, and floral aromas. Flavors are similar with a light early malt sweetness then moderate grassy hop bitterness. Not fascinating. Lively carbonation, light-plus bodied, thin texture.

22oz bottle. Pours a light amber with a white head. Malty, some citrus notes, moderate bitterness. Watery mouthfeel. A little plain. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DTM (783) - Winters, California, USA - AUG 14, 2013
On tap at Vito's in Davis CA. Pours a dark yellow color and it left a ton of lacing on the glass. Not much flavor to it. Just some mild sweetness with maybe a hint of hop. Not bad, just not very outstanding. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap @ Cullen’s Pub in Benicia, CA. Not bad for a pale ale. Some decent malt and hops, but nothing too complex.

GT2 (7899) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Tap at Salted Pig. Orange pour, webby white lace. Nose is muted, some detergent. Taste is metallic with flashes of vinegar. Palate is harsh, papery. Bizarre.
