Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours gold with a creamy white head that does a bit of lacing. Light fruity aroma. Med body. Flavor is pine/citrus/fruit, and it goes a little wheaty in the finish. Nice, light, yet satisfactorily bitter ale. Finishes with fairly mild flavors.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2014 "I see these more as IPAs given how ridiculously they are hopped, but theyve gotten classed as APAs due to the 5%. Either way, this version was among the hoppiest session ales Ive ever had. Wonderfully vibrant and aromatic, light feel without being watery. Id say refreshing, but the ruinous amount of hops tempers that a bit. Lovely beer :)"

Clear yellow orange in color with thin white head... Aroma of light pine hops... Flavor is light and crisp, with notes of pine and floral notes from simcoe... Extremely sessionable... Nice beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 ounce sample on tap at Reno Public House. The aroma is nice with plenty of dank simcoe hop aromatics. Light cereal malts are also there. Pleasant aroma. Transparent blonde body with a medium, strong white head and ok lacing. Starts with nice, hoppy, lightly catty, dank, and mild citrus hop character. Really bright and flavorful. Light cereal malts in the middle, before a floral, moderately bitter finish. Yum.

On tap at Capital Beer and Taproom, minimal lasting head, yellow, good overall but suffers from single hop syndrome. I struggle to find the virtue in the one hop movement. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours amber with a decent beige head and a citrus aroma. There is a medium-bodied caramel malt flavor with a nicely bitter finish.
