COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Truly a handcrafted original, our American Pale Ale is a distinctive, crisp beer that’s delightfully easy to drink. Its deep golden color, full-bodied mouth feel and robust flavors combine to create a smooth finish with just the right amount of snap, presenting the perfect pour.

RedSox2004 (1200) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Clear golden amber with one-finger white head and thick lace. Bready malt aromas with grapefruit and grass. Mild hop bitterness up front offset by a subtle malt sweetness, accompanied by citrus, pine and herbs. Light to medium bodied, generous carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a bitter hop finish.

Barreras (932) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Pours an opaque yellow color with a light floral aroma. Taste is clean and refreshing with a minor bitterness. This beer is mildly happy with some grass notes. An earthy flavor throughout.

pintbypint (2542) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 6, 2014
12oz brown bottle. Gold colour, clear. Bubbly white foam on top, long lasting lacing. Nose has some fruitiness, sweet citrus/orange/greapefruit. Taste has light bread/biscuity sweetness, grapefruity hops. Finish has orange notes and grapefruit, medium bitterness and ends dry. Satisfying and actually pretty chugable, a good APA.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 26, 2014
Nothing even close to the IPA but still an above average easy to sip on Pale with a good hop character and light but well balancing malts. Pours a bright yellowed amber with a frothy white head. Overall, a good brew

reebtogi (4051) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
355ml bottle pours a clear bright golden color with a finger and a half of white head that has decent retention and leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with some mild grains. Taste is a grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with an underlying malty sweetness. Fairly well balanced with a medium body and modest carbonation. A nicely done American pale ale that is definitely worth checking out.

Golden body, white head. Nice hoppy resinous aroma. Thin maltiness, moderately bitter. Falls a bit flat on the palate. Drinkable. Finish is dry.

single bottle from fresh market santa barbara. great aroma of fresh hops upon opening bottle. fits description to a tee - crisp, dry and hoppy - another great west coast pale ale - much more flavor and hops than usual for a pale ale - a true west coast APA. much better than its rating. very sessionable.highly recommended

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours amber gold with a white head. Aroma seems citrus. Flavor is roast malt with citrus. A little fruity. Nicely bitter. Finishes that way. Sharper flavors than some APAs.
