retinadoc (123) - - MAY 3, 2013
Draft. Refined hoppy nose. Very well balanced hoppy mouthfeel. Not as punchy as some small microbrewery offerings, but clearly a well-finished ale, with no offensive odors or flavors. This is a beer that won’t win any tastings, because it doesn’t have any single overwhelming quality, such as extra hops (eg. Samuel Adams Latitude 48 IPA) or high ABV (eg. Dogfish 90 minute ale), but it’s a beer I can drink all night if I wanted to. Very smooth and refined.

Love this pale ale. Nice malty flavor combined with a flowery hoppy aroma and palate. Excellent brew.

bhensonb (11491) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Tap at the brewpub. Pours brassy gold with a white head. Aroma of light roast malt and hop. Med body, nearly. Flavor is light roast malt, with a touch of citrus. Finishes lightly bitter, and towards dry. Drinks ok.
Earlier Rating: 7/12/2007 Total Score: 3.2
Aroma of floral hop backed by caramel malt. Full amber color; head was filmed upon delivery. Medium bodied; moderate carbonation. Starts with malt, and it is firmly there. A little hop, arguably with citrus, comes along. The finish is only moderately bitter, not quite dry. The bitter does tend to build in the mouth though.

sudomorph (707) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2014
Draft at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill. Pours a clear caramel/copper with a nice head that sticks. Aroma has notes of bread and caramel mixed with pine and resin. Taste is balanced. Starts with a bit of bready caramel then moves to a solid piney resin. Medium body and carbonation. A touch of a resin texture with a dry finish. Overall a really nice beer.
