On tap at the brew pub in Arnold. This was a near perfect pale ale. Poured a nice orange/amber color with a thin white head. Huge grapefruit and citrus hops on the nose with enough malt hiding in the background to make it interesting. The flavor was more citrus hops, but the malt balance was perfect. Spot on. Not to bitter, not to malty. This was a fantastic beer. Made the side trip to Arnold 100% worth the drive.

Out of a pint glass outside of Yosemite at "California’s oldest saloon." Hazy gold color with a nice white head that remains full and lacy. Nice hop aroma. Taste of well balanced hops and malts follows through with generous citrusy hops on the finish. Mouth.

A decent pale ale. Pours a nice amber color with not much head. Smells a little fruity and hoppy. Taste starts fruity and finishes hoppy. Not bad. Had in the bottle in Murphy's. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Huge foamy head....bad bottle?? Somewhat metallic in taste and smell. Copper appearance. Not too good, but will try again in case I got a stale one.

Brownish gold, small white head, aroma of citrus & pine hops. Malt character is good, fruity (oranges?), hops finish is very nice. Well balanced and enjoyable, a decent APA.
