COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Balanced toward the hoppy end of the spectrum, this straight-foward, California-style pale is eminently sessionable. Crystal and Munich malts provide a backbone to showcase the bright, citrus, piney notes of Cascade, Chinook, and Simcoe hops.

Pour on tap at Woodman, slightly hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, some hints of nice pine, grass, herbal notes into a bit of dank in there, touch of citrus. Taste is a mix of citrus, grass, bread, some nice resinous into some pine, finishing fairly bitter.

maekchu (2361) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 1, 2015
Can from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Piney hop nose, some citrus, with tropical fruit. Dark amber color, thinwhite head, some lace. Citrus/pine hop initial, caramel behin it in mid palate and final. Medium-thin body, with some hop texture. Simcoe and Cascade bomb the nose. Hopping also dominates the flavor. Fun stuff, but it is definitely way overhopped.

Fatehunter (1414) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Pours a finger of head on a clear straw colored body. The aroma is loaded with citrus: lemon and grapefruit mostly, and a little pine. The taste is balanced. Great malt profile with the bitterness taking over halfway through. Lots of citrus here too. The texture is crisp. Nice.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2531) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 18, 2014
5.5 % Can from CBB bought to ring in my 100th APA rating. Served in a lager glass. It pours a good-looking deep gold with a big fluffy head and a wonderful citrusy hop bouquet with a touch of dankness. The taste is tropical fruits, citrus, white grape and a light bitterness with a crisp finish. This is a very good hoppy pale ale that is lightly refreshing and quite satisfying.
