Clear gold with a white head that recedes quickly. Aroma is faint, citrus and straw. Taste is bitter hops with a hint of sweetness. The finish is bitter, with citrusy hops. arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Bright yellow-orange, very clear, great head. Smells very hoppy for a pale ale, citrus fruits like lemon and orange come to mind. Flavor is more of the same but this is not an IPA, it feels lighter in body and so easy to drink. I think I found my new go to pale ale because this has less alcohol than Sierra Nevada and I might just prefer the hop profile, great stuff.

On tap at capitol beer. Has a yellow color with white head. Taste is refreshing and hoppy. Light IPA taste. MrHangover (4442) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2012
Bottle. Clear, beautiful golden colour with a soapy white head. Fresh aroma of raisins, grapes citrus and coriander. Flavour is fresh bitter, decent amount of hop character and very easy drinkable. Medium body and carbo but really refreshing and thirst quenching. If I had better access to this, I would defintely stock my fridge with it. Very nice APA. lukemundy (33) - California, USA - NOV 4, 2012
This pours a beautiful gold with a hazy head. The aroma is bright and citrusy with a faint smell of crusty bread... think San Francisco sourdough.
The flavor is spot on for a California pale: bold hops with their piney bitterness, but nothing big or overbearing. It's a crisp, balance and refreshing beer.

Pours a golden color with a nice head. Aroma has some flowers with a little pine. Taste is crisp with a mild bitterness. There is some grapefruit on the finish. Thisis12ptfont (1176) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Strong hops on the nose with some crisp bread-like malts behind it. Light gold in color with a fast dissipating foam. Assertive hops greet the palate followed by a steady caramel and biscuit malt flavor. Overall, this is a well done pale ale. Simple yet, assertive and balanced. I’d give this a B rating. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Pale gold with good, foamy, white head / Bright nose of soap, citrus, and pine / Light to medium body, a tad thin, some resin, good balance and bitter finish / Weak but fine flavors of soap, grapefruit, honey, and orange peel / Just a little too light, but wouldn’t turn one down. abemorsten (3593) - Mosterřy, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2012
Small bottle kindly shared by Valeria at Galeria Kaufhof Berlin Alexanderplatz. Clear golden with a white film. Heavy dry hopped nose where the cascade seems to dominate. Medium bodied hoppy juice. ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 16, 2012
Pours a clear, pale copper, small white, fizzy head that doesnt stick around. Small bubbles pepper the body. Aroma is fruit, malt, caramel, honey and a nuance of sour yeast - husky sweetness cut with the hops. Quite clean and crisp and a little dry in the mouth. A bready, malt sweetness offset by the bitterness of hops that are big in the middle and finish, but never overdone. More bready malt in the finish. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied and quite lively carbonation. Another nicely balanced, quite sessionable APA.
