Buddy, pal, mate, brother (or sister) from another mother, compadre . . . sidekick. All of these are ways to describe someone or something that is always at your side. Sidekick extra pale ale is one of those things. This golden colored ale is loaded with juicy citrus and passion fruit hop aroma yet balanced with malt and hop character. A true companion.

It poured a yellow/gold color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus, caramel and some grassy hops. The taste was of melon, grapefruit, grass, floral and caramel sweetness. Good stuff.

Pineapple in the aroma, some watermelon and strawberry as well. Golden with white head. Mostly pineapple and pine in the taste. Kinda dry. Needs more body. Pretty drinkable and well balanced.

Bottle with hesitant thanks to coyotehunter... umm... thanks or something. So this beer pours a light and clear gold with a fizzy head. Looks like something that is meant to not startle the macro-swilling crowd. In fact, it smells and tastes like that kind of beer too. Itís not bad, but itís not adventurous either.

Nice change of pace. Great aroma of pineapple, mango maybe banana. This pours (from bottle) with nice clean lightly colored camel color and forms a nice 1 1/2 finger head. When tasting all the aroma flavors come to play with a slight bitter note and then turns to a light y sweet malty flavor. Very nice balance of hops and malt.

Lots of pineapple in the nose, very bright. A bit of tropical too, perhaps mango, and a bit of citrus. Really nice nose. Pale clear appearance with spotty lacing. Taste is biting into a pineapple at 1st, then a bit of hops and dryness, then a watery finish. Overall a solid beer. Thanks for the trade Ron!

TH28 (264) - - JAN 23, 2015
12oz can. Appearance: Light golden, with a slight haziness, and a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma: a moderate hop fruitiness, melon, pineapple, and citrus. No real noticeable malt aroma. Taste: Light malt character and sweetness, giving way to a light grapefruit and grassy hop flavor and moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel: light to moderate body, moderate carbonation Finish: Fairly well balanced and crisp, with a slightly lingering hop bitterness Overall: a better than average APA and well balanced. Aroma is a nice passion fruit hop character, but somewhat subdued compared to other APAs. Taste is crisp and refreshing, but nothing that stands out vs other examples.

Transparent yellow with a white head. Interesting aroma of tropical fruit and earthy good. Medium body. Balanced malt presence, hint of sweetness. Finishes with a lingering fruity hop note.

can - This hazy gold brew has a one finger off-white head. It has a good, citrus rich aroma. Citrus hops and subdued malt sweetness combine for a moderately bitter, medium bodied beer thatís really easy to drink. Recommended.

Pours a hazy golden color. Very thin white head. No lacing. Aroma is a sweet tropical hop. Taste is almost juicy and has sweet tropical flavors with a flower like hop taste. A bit of a watery mouth feel.
