Pours orange/amber/brown with a good amount of off white head. Nose is orange piney hops. Flavor is a kind of odd mix of bitter, orange-ish citrus, and hops. I cant say it seems really balanced. Full bodied, sure. But balanced? No. Too much bite. Feel is kind of thick and doughy. Nice enough carbonation. Overall, the odd flavor profile here kind of drops the drinkability in my opinion. I mean, hey, theres no balance here where there should be. Ya know? Just seems to be lacking.

Bottle. Golden body, big rocky white head, citrus and yeast (!) in the nose. Metallic notes at the start, honey, moderate bitterness, perhaps some citrus in the finish.

Bitter burst of citrus and honey initially, then settling to an utterly forgettable McPaleAle.

Wegro (332) - Fresno, California, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Smells mildly of hops. Pale gold color, bubbly white head. Has some good malt sweetness and moderate hops but it tastes mostly watered down. Really easy to drink but it honestly is one of the most watered down pales Ive had. Not a winner.

12oz bottle-pours an off white head and hazy gold color. Aroma is somewhat bitter citrus hops, secondary/faint medium malt-biscuity. Taste is somewhat bitter citrus hops, secondary/faint medium malt-biscuity, nicely balanced. A bit over carbonated, which is rare for me. Thanks Wasatch.

Pours a clear gold with white head. Grain, hops, citrus, and a bit of sweet caramel malt. Easy to drink beer, but quite uninteresting.

Charlzm (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 18, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2007 Botled, consumed on 10/18/07. Pours a clear, pale gold. Head is white and made up of fine white bubbles. Fades rapidly to a ring around the edges and a thin skin on the center. Sweet citrus hops in the nose with a hint of malt and resin underneath. Thin but smooth, it slides into the mouth easily. Maltier than I expected, almost like a red or amber ale, with sweet honey notes. Astringent with mild bitterness as it goes down, the aftertaste lives on in a tingly patch in the center of the tongue. Very mild grapefruit hop note lingers as well. After beer warms, I would be fooled if someone handed me a glass of this and said it was Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. I might not buy another bottle, but its a fine drinking beer.

Bottle. Cloudy dark yellow with an overwhelming head. The head dissipated slowly leaving brussels lace stranded on the glass. The aroma was sweet yet sour, both floral and fruity. The taste was soft and refreshing but nothing memorable or worth trying again. The carbonation hits you first followed by little else.
