Sharing the same proprietary hop blend, around 40 of our brewery brethren nationwide created beers to benefit research for ALS, a disease often associated with baseball legend Lou Gehrig. A strong swing of tropical fruit and citrus drives light-boded No. 4 Pale Ale to the wall, and it crosses home with a crisp, dry finish. (Lou Gehrig’s number 4 was retired by the New York Yankees in 1939.)

marcus (6788) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 30, 2013
On tap at Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours clear golden with a nice off-white head and a floral aroma. There is a medium-bodied pale malt flavor with a dry slightly bitter finish. Too thin.

Not going to tank it. But not that great for an ipa. Can really taste the yeast. Not a big fan. Not many hops.

deekyn (1264) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 22, 2013
A - pours nice effervescent gold. With low white ring of head. Strong lacing. S - interesting fresh citrus with musty white grapes, light musty hop flowers and resin. M - light dry body. A little thickness. T - lager notes, lemon juice, musty orange juice and blossoms. Doughy and caramel malts. O - good but lightly muddled. Sweetish pale, so un Sierra. Like a mellow sweet Sierra pale. 3.3

bhensonb (11534) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Pours dark gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is sort of citrus/mango. Med body. Flavor is bready with mixed fruity hop. Maybe light roast malt is a better descriptor than bready. Finishes a bit papery, but dry and bitter. Good session ale.
