kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Tap. Pours a clear gold body with a small wispy white head that fell to a thin ring. The nose is fairly bright floral hops with a light crackery and bready malt base. Very fresh and bright. The flavor is bright and bitter with a grapefruit finish, nicely dry pale malt body. Light bodied and very easy drinking with soft fizzy carbonation. Lingering light tropical fruit hops. Really nice sessionable Pale Ale, this is what I want when on the west coast.

jbruner (4740) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Pours a chill hazed golden yellow on tap with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of resinous citrus hops and sweet bready malts. Taste is more toward the malty side, a hint of oxidation, but still nice and hoppy to balance. Not bad, but nothing special.

Nice relaxed pale ale. Great addition to a sunny day on the waterfront. Some hops tanginess. Mouthfeel is......normal.

Wombata (625) - Kobe, JAPAN - AUG 12, 2015
Aroma: Sweet, floral orange, ripe passion fruit, malt, resin. Palate: Flavor and body quickly turn thin. Flavor: Orange, passion fruit, Comment: Sweeter and less bitter than Two Beers Day Hike. Aroma is very good, but the flavor and palate are not. The thin body and flavor from the mid-palate just seems wrong. Their Interurban IPA doesn’t have this fault though it too has a rather short finish.
