This is a tones down version of the IPA. Different than most other pales I have tried. I like to great aroma and flavor of this beer. It has a fuller body than most pales (which I like). Malty sweet undertones. All around great beer.

Almost like a milder version of thier IPA, this beer is easier to find the malt flavor in because of the toned down hops. I like my pales a little thinner, (more like the Sierra Nevada), but this is a great runner-up, and easy to drink, one after the other.

Rich dark amber, a healthy portion of thick foam, a light hoppy aroma seemingly of the pils varieties, Hallertauer and/or Saaz. Semi-dry and clean palate with a slightly astringent finish. Like a pumped up Pils in the nose with APA color and texture.

Not a bad pale ale. Maybe too much caramel flavor in it? Hops decent. I wouldn’t turn one down if it was offered.

First rate pale ale. Nice hoppy (floral) aromatics. Just the right amount of carbonation. Chewy and nutty with a darkish amber hue.

Mmm. Pleasant floral hop aroma. Sweet maltiness gives way to bitter hops. After one glass, it’s taken its place near the top of my list of favorite pales.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2005 Thought I’d finally give this a more realistic rating: Bottle. Dark amber, slightly orangish with a good beige head. Big hop aromas (pine/citrus) with a caramel backing. Clean tasting, surprisingly malty (toasted malts, some biscuit), but the citrus hop flavor with a bit of spiciness dominates. Flavors some together very well and strike a balance - an in your face balance when you consider this is a pale ale, but balance none the less. It still wins our blind taste tests. I’ve had this beer many times and it has never failed to impress. In a blind taste test of 8 southern california pale ale’s, this beer came first on 7 of the 8 taster’s lists.
