COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Another beer inspired by West Coast hop-heads. Amber in color, medium-bodied, a bit fruity with a hint of caramel. The big hop nose and dry, hoppy finish are yours courtesy of Yakima Cascade hops.

A: The pour is amber/dark copper in color with a white head which leaves some mild lacing on the glass. S: The nose is about right on for a pale ale. The nose has a lot of citrus and resinous pine hops. The nose is very comparable to their IPA, actually. T: While the nose gave off a very hop forward aroma, the flavor was a slight step back. The hops are still there, but the caramel and slightly toasty, biscuity malt really comes through as well. M: The body is medium with the carbonation being a bit on the lower side. D: Overall, this was like a pale ale should be: an easy drinking and refreshing beer. Not the best beer on the tap list, but a solid enough choice.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 23, 2009
Cask at the brew pub. Hazy gold/straw color with a big creamy white head. Great hop aroma, lots of grapefruit, very pungent, but in a good way. Flavor was much the same, more grapefruit, very silky and smooth. Very well done.

chrisafari (100) - Orange, California, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Pours amber brown with thin white head. Aroma is mellow and nice balance of hops and malt. Flavor is similar: nice hops and aftertaste of subtle carmel malt. Nothing really amazing, but a good beer, none the less. A decent pale ale (i think Stone’s Pale Ale is better).

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Poured golden amber. Small head. Floral and citrus aromas. Hops upfront. Pretty floral with balanced caramel malts backing it up. A very drinkable session APA.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - AUG 18, 2006
On tap poured a slightly hazy pale/red color with a small head. Nice hop aroma and a good balance of bitterness and carmel malt sweetness. Overall a good American Pale, but maybe a little more hops.
