Bottle from Maruhn, Darmstadt, bottled on 02/20/13
Blond color. The aroma is immediately resiny, piney, and then fruity. The mouthfeel is weak and very dry; light malt flavor, with strong hopping, quite resiny, and a touch of orange peel, chamomile, lime; if fresher, it could be something.

Taste comprises tangy citric peel, pine needle, melon, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying close with a skunky hop wash. Decent enough APA.

harrisoni (17574) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2008
Bottle bought at GBBF 08. I love these Californian pale ales, so easy drinking. First beer of the day at 20.50 straight out of the fridge and straight down my throat to quench my throat. Moderate grapefruit hop on aroma, just enough malt to keep it all together and a light stinging lingering grapefruit hop finish. Just a perfect quaffing beer. Wish I had another 4 or 5 in the fridge as this one has seemed to disappear in about 5 minutes. Boy, was I thirsty.

yngwie (16711) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2013
On tap at Firestone Walker Taproom, Buellton. A clear golden beer with a dense, finger thick off-white head. The aroma is grassy and piney, like smelling a hop pellet. Some tropical fruits and sweetish pale malts too. The flavor has a nice bitterness, along with the other hoppy things found in the aroma. Some sweetness. Full to medium body, velvety. Long finish. A nice one, although a bit simple. 130809
