Draft pour pint at Elysian Fields, after a good win. Pours a cloudy orange color with tons of foam head. Soft feet hop aroma, not the most inviting. Flavor is a solid hop profile, with some juicy orange fruit. Low bitter, orange finish. Drinks very much like an IPA. Pretty good. slowrunner77 (12471) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 2, 2014
"very nice indeed. one of the best pales i’ve had in quite some time. as hoppy as some brewers ipas but lighter, sweeter, and more refreshing. still crisp, with floral and citrus hops and good balance. nailed this one." skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Classic Left Coast Pale. Thick and hoppy enough to keep you interested while being able to gulp plenty of it. Love they still have the old picture up here! kaser (6364) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Golden pour at triple door in Seattle. White head. Good smooth bananna and tropical flavors. Tons if head. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2010
Cask version @ brewpub. Opaque dark orange with a fluffy stable white head. Brightly hopped aroma. Amarillo? Yum. Fruity. Oranges with fresh, oily hop buds on top. Quaffable, so very very quaffable! Goes down easily. Is earthier and milder flavored than the aromas let on. The body is balanced and mellow. Liked a lot.

On tap. Pours red gold with thick beige head and some clingyness. Aromas of caramel, burnt sugar and some breadiness. Bit funky with earthy hops and a bitter grapefruit finish. Florals come out with food. neepsntatties (2019) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 15, 2009
On tap at the Elysian Fields pub. Colour... dark gold with no head. Nose... light hops and some malt. Palate... lightly hoppy, malty and citrusy. Kind of blah, really.
