Bottle at Davis Beerfest 2011. Pours clear blonde with a rich beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a dry pale malt flavor with subtle hop bitterness. A very balanced and smooth ale. BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Typical if uspectacular version of a California Pale Ale - light golden color, decent citrussy hop nose and palate, very light malt and body. KUEric (976) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2011
I liked this beer, it had a nice copper color a floral aroma and taste, with a slightly bitter finish. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Bottle: Hazy golden, very orange and dirty, fine sediment floats about, large frothy white head, fairly nice lacing. Musty candied citrus peel nose, pale hops. On the tongue its a little musty/barnish. Not real bright, hops are subtle. Tiz clean, but not as hoppy as I would have liked. I did sit on this bottle for a while, so no doubt it has mellowed. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Finish feels musty, a little over the hill. That aroma just encapsulates me, just this candied citrus peel makes me want something sugary sweet. Perhaps a little over the hill, but still clean and enjoyable.   Thanks Tim! joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 24, 2011
On tap at the brewery. It pours gold with a white head. The aroma is citrus, grass, and hints of tropical sweetness. The flavor is light with a strong citrusy, grassy, orange hop finish. A bit light on the palate.

A: The pour is a slightly hazed golden orange color with a finger or two of white had.
S: Nice citrus hop aromas followed by a definite pine character. The piney hops are incredibly oily and resinous which you don’t often find in a pale ale. Some moderate malt notes of bread and biscuit malts.
T: A nice flavor, but not quite as good as the nose. Not as much citrus and the pine is not as intense either. More toward the bready malt side of things with some grapefruit peel adding additional bitterness and maybe some floral notes.
M: Medium in body with the carbonation on the high end of medium.
O: Pretty decent pale ale, though it’s a bit too bitter without a ton of hop flavor. bhensonb (15194) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Bottle from Hi Time. Pours bright amber with a foamy beige head. Aromas of light roast malt and resin. Med body. Seems to start with a touch of diacetyl. Then mild roast malt and some hop that seems resin. Something is coating my tongue a bit. Finishes just slightly on the bitter side. An ok APA.

Clear amber color/ white head. Mild pine, honey biscuit aromas. Easy drinking honey malt flavors with pine, floral hoppage- good. ChazMania (669) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 11, 2010
On tap at brewery. A nice refreshing straight up Pale Ale, nicely balanced and clean finish. I suspect they use Amarillo in this one. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - SEP 28, 2010
I had this on tap at Hangar 24 in Redlands.
Good malt & hop balance up front, witha bit of dry finish.
