3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap @ Pleasanton HopYard. Clear, golden ale with white head. Smells good, taste is good - just not enough of it. This would be a great beer to indroduce someone to NorCal Pale Ales, a little lighter and less strong than Sierra Nevada.
Tap. Pours clear amber. Aroma and flavor are pale and caramel malts, pear, citrus, nice balance, and crisp dry finish with some bitterness lingering. Medium body rdixon77 (2873) - Georgia, USA - JUL 13, 2017
Thanks Carl! A bottle a bit past prime, but still a nice smooth pale that had traces of the big citrusy hops. A bit of grainy body. Good stuff. MarcoDL (5028) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2017
Bottle. Golden pour. Aroma of caramel, pine, citrus, grapefruit and grassy hop. Taste has fresh grapefruit, citrus, caramel, mild pine and a bitter hoppy finish. TBone (17676) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 9, 2017
Bottled 355ml (Beer Republic, bottled 27/03/17)bryanbrews (1) - Modesto, California, USA - MAR 25, 2017 does not count
Slightly hazy yellow color, small white head. Peach, pine, citrus in the nose. Light-bodied. Pale malty, a bit fruity, grapefruity and pine hops. Some fruity sweetness in the aftertaste. Easy-going well-brewed APA.
Bottled and opened after 11 days. Aroma slight fruity, estery, bubblegum. Appearance clear and very pale orange, many dry hop floaties add minor haze. Tastes sweet light/medium, bitter medium/heavy, sour light. Very crisp, light body. Soft carbonation with pretty fluffy white head dissipating quickly, not much lacing. Creamy finish with slight astringency. Overall a pretty light bodied ale quaffable but a tad on the bitter side to be deemed sessionable.

Bottle. Pours a dark orange colour with a thin white head, aroma is light and hoppy with hints of orange, the taste is medium bitterness with a dry bitter finish. & DavidWoodruff (629) - Windsor, California, USA - MAR 1, 2017
Dark gold with a frothy white head. Lemon peel and pine are the aroma stand outs. Malt takes a backseat to resiny hop flavors. Balanced and not overly bitter for it’s medium bodied palate. Nicely done and quite enjoyable. SVD (2026) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2017
Orange medium aroma malt caramel fruit citrus hop. Taste the same not much in aroma and vlavour probably past best before sweet JohnRMurdoch (4914) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 13, 2017
12oz bottle from Valhalla’s Goat. Amber brown, not much head. Resin hop aroma. Toffee grain hop flavour. Better sweet aftertaste. Better than their IPA. kevinsenn (2236) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2017
On tap. Solid resin and fruit aroma. And a solid resin a.d fruit taste with good balance. Long bitter finish. Solid pale ale. Nothing wrong with it.
