Bottle. Pleasant if standard visuals, shiny, still and amber, the head is solid and white. Fun little aroma, too ... fresh and lightly citric, but not dominating in any way. Drinks with superbly exceptional balance ... firm but light malt backdrop, then a rollicking fresh hop blend that really makes this beer good. Just a twitch of fresh mown grass in the very finish. Excellent. (#5556, 6/16/2013) DanielBrown (4528) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2017
Bottle from Clink, Birmingham. A hoppy beer, which is bold, fruity, fizzy, clean. Not sure whether it’s the hop or malt variety, but either way this has a rich caramel tang which is delicious. Stunning beer. MisterSparkle (29) - California, USA - MAY 26, 2011
On tap @ Stone. Pours a deep amber-red, clear with a nice white finger head which is very beautiful froth...lace is stringy and runs with only a little bit of stick. Aroma distinctly piney/spruce. Taste is true to nose, hop-forward, light-medium body, an excellent SD County Pale Ale. Finish is a tad astringent, but in a good way...saps the moisture in your mouth a tad, and you pucker at the bitter goodness. Very impressed with Green Flash these days...they know how to get mileage from their hops! thetmaxx (917) - West Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 25, 2012
On tap at Streets for beer week! Pours with a thin white head that leaves a lot ifl lacing. Aroma is nice with the hops citrus. Flavor is nicely bittered, a little more than your average pale which is just right! Good malt balance on this one as well. Palate is medium bodied, not to thick, not too watery. Would be nice on a hot day. FresnoStoney (4) - Fresno, California, USA - JAN 27, 2015 does not count
Overall,Would I Drink it? Yeah!
Would I buy it? Probably not
The Finish stays with me way too long...

Draft at pizza Luce hopkins. Hoppy aroma with grapefruit evident. Murky Amber with a thin ring if head. Some lace. Wonderful citrusy hop flavor with juicy grapefruit. Tons of flavor for a pale ale. Excellent. bigwesticle (37) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Growler Fill from The Filling Station. This beer reminds me a lot of a light version of their Imperial IPA. It’s definitely a pale ale but leans ever so closely to an IPA. Big piney tropical notes on the nose, very hoppy aroma for a pale. Taste follows... lots of papaya, tropical fruit, bananas, and a semi-sweet malt back. Absolutely awesome pale ale. beertholomeus (1813) - California, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Pours a light amber color with a white head. Citrus, floral, hop and malt aroma. Grapefruit, mango, orange, hop, floral, caramel and malt flavors. Medium body and carbonation. Floral, citrus hop finish. Solid. dwyerpg (6368) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 30, 2015
It has a nice light hop aroma, the flavor is very effervescent with some citrus hops. Good and right on per style brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 15, 2010
A: A light golden-yellow color with a nice white foam.
S: Some good citrus but more pine from the hops. Decent malt backing.
T: Very nice hop fruitiness from this beer. Lots of citrus and some pineapple. Excellent piney bitterness is present as well, along with a decent amount of malt.
M: On the lighter side of things in terms of body, but good carbonation helps out.
D: Overall, a very solid and easy drinking pale ale.
