A ho hum average pale ale, perhaps a tad below average, really. Poured the amber color with a white type head, good lacing. The aroma was citrus and caramel. Flavor followed, not nearly as bitter as I was hoping, residual sweetness present too? Grainy. Mouthfeel moderate in body and carbonation.

Aromas of citrus fruit and bread. Clear red, with quickly diminishing, white head. Lightly sweet, with some berry flavors, but well-balanced with the hops. Medium-full body, with average carbonation, and a long, bitter finish with some toast.

Draft. Pours amber gold with a white head. Light citric hoppy aroma with a pale malty base. The flavor has citric and floral hops and light pale and sweet malts. Not bad.

On tap at brewery. Poured a translucent bronze color with a small white head. Aroma is fresh hops, with a light sweet malt backing. Very much like a standard brew-pub APA. Not that this is a bad thing, I really enjoyed it and all it’s "unrefined" fresh glory.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beer with the same name as my best friend from law school the night of the bar exam--certainly hard to forget. On tap in late July 2009. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate amber color with a nice off white head and some rings of lacing on the way down. The nose brings some fairly-strong citrus notes with a bit of pale malt in the background. The taste is slightly bitter with some nice hop flavors and a bit of malt. Good body and carbonation with a nice level of bitterness. Drinks quite well overall and was part of a nice intro to this brewery.
Serving type: on-tap
