At brewery. Pours a cloudy pale yellow. White head. Aromas of lemon and melon. Taste is light melon with a light bitterness. Pretty crushable.

brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 21, 2016
On tap @ Cellarmaker. Lightly hazed golden beer with a white head. Grassy hop character with a lot of floral and citrus rind notes. Some orange, light pine, and bready makes. Pretty mild sweetness, some bitterness, but a distinct lack of that intense fragrant, aromatic hop punch as well.

A little known beer factoid is that long ago, beer researchers G. Nickerson and L. Van Engel proposed a metric for beer aroma in a paper entitled, "Hop Aroma Component Profile and the Aroma Unit," J. Am. Soc. Brew. Chem. 50, 77 (1992). The metric never caught on, but it would probably be the best metric for Cellarmaker APAs and IPAs, whose differences seem more a matter of degree than a matter of kind. I suspect the aroma units for the May 2016 version of New Beer Smell might be off the charts.

On tap at Cellarmaker, SF (USA). Very cloudy lemon skin pour, white creamy head. Nose: mango, tropical, a bit creamy. Mouth: mild creamy character, a bit zesty, refreshing session PA with a citra character. Solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 8, 2015
On draft at Caps & Taps. It pours a lightly hazed pale orange/yellow color with a white head. The aroma is nice with florals, grapefruit and lime. Very fresh with hints of passionfruit. The flavor is the same. Light crackery malt, floral, grassy hops with stronger than average bitterness, at least for Cellarmaker. Overall, very enjoyable.

ineedbeer (2255) - Oakland, California, USA - JUN 26, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Aroma is moderately malty with some nice pale cracker and white bread notes. Moderate hop notes of tropical fruit, melon and citrus. Pours a hazy, gold with a small, white head that lingers for quite some time on the edges. Moderate lacing and small legs. Flavor is moderately malty with some nice cracker, biscuit and white bread notes. Moderate bitterness. Bright hop notes of citrus, tropical fruit and melon. Some light resin character. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, another nice pale from Cellarmaker. I?m really digging their pale ale style with balanced, lighter malts and bright new age fruity hops.

popery (2231) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 22, 2015
The beer is a slightly orangey tan yellow color. It’s quite cloudy. Medium white head. Some lacing. The aroma has a nice sweet tropical fruit hoppiness with a little bit of crackery malt underneath. Hops could be a bit juicier. Grape, mango, sweet pineapple juice, strawberry, blackberry, tangerine. Good stuff. It’s moderately bitter. A bit grassy on the palate but the fruitiness is there. Pretty dry. Easy to drink. Refreshing. Light, dry feel with a lingering hop presence.

On tap at Apex, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Nose is very fresh, with quite a bit of funk, floral hops and crisp biscuity malt. Flavour is similar, with funky notes, floral hops and biscuity malt. Smooth and drinkable. Really fresh and funky. Excellent.
