Thanks to Julian for sharing this. This tasty pale ale has lots of hop goodness.
Tap at Beachwood. Filtered orange-tan. Foamy white head. Earthy, juicy, tangy hoop tones. Not an all out juicebomb though, it leans into the bitterness too. Really good. Marheb (6193) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 1, 2015

Hoppy pine flavor, mango, passion fruit, diesel notes, pine apples, some oranges and grapes. Delicious APA. GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Tap at Churchills for SDBW. Pours a clear golden with great lacing. Nose is spot on kumquat and mangosteen- juicy, pithy, bright. Taste is clean, light as hell session APA with juicy passionfruit, sharp grassy balance. Dry, refreshing. Solid session APA offering from Beachwood.

On tap @ Toronado: Poured a golden blonde with a thin fluffy topping of head. The aroma is dominated by hops and has a metallic smell as if it were a jar full of coins. The drink is extremely bitter with a bold taste of hops that taste as though I just took a bite out of an unripe grapefruit. This comes across as unbalanced and tasting almost like a homebrewed IPA on steroids. Leaves behind too much of a metallic finish for my enjoyment.

Clear golden color with ivory head. Big grapefruit, pine aromas. Light to medium bodied. Big bitter grapefruit rind, pine needle flavors in a wispy pale male base brew--good hop flavors but not enough malt to balance JoeTheYounger (1195) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - NOV 28, 2011
On tap at Stone Bistro. Poured a golden orangish pour with thin white head. Aroma was grapefruit and dank floral hops. Taste was very malt forward with a small bite of hops. Good pale ale although I did enjoy the aroma much more than the taste. iowaherkeye (2804) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Draught @ Toronado SD. Clear golden with a small white head. Nose of rye and citrus rinds. Lots of tropical fruit and grapefruit rind dominates, not much on the malt area other than some rye and a tinge of rye sweetness, which is just fine. Bone dry, bitterness at a 6. Low carbonation with a light body. Tasty. nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Tap at Toronado copper gold color. Pine grass aroma. Flavors of bitter dry hops and mild hop back bone. Finishes pretty dry and lean . Great beer and could drink much more.
