bottle, thanks to Hophead22. Pours slightly hazy gold. Aroma is dominated bu citrusy hops. Flavor is hops, and grass. Body is on the light side. This wpuldn’t be a bad summertime session beer. Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Pours a yellow with an almost neon yellow tint to it. Aroma of malted hops and corn. Taste is simple with a mild hop aftertaste. A slight metallic taste after the swallow. A mild pale ale that was not complex. Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - SEP 18, 2009
Bottled sample. Golden color, stable head, a nice soft flavor, nothing overdone. Some hops on initial drink, mellows alot, with malt coming through as well, nice balance, some pine, grass, pepper. Good one! User134089 (1644) - - JUN 1, 2013
Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Firestone restaurant pint glass
From: VONS in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $13.97 (with VONS card) for a variety 12-pack
Purchased: June 1, 2013

Poured a copper orange, rather clear color with about four fingers of frothy white head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Lots of thick sporadic foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Great thick and foamy retention all the way down.
Initially smelled a mixture of orange , tangerine and lemon. Also butter, wheat, grass, honey and floral notes.
Taste wasn’t quite like the nose. Seemed to taste bitter coffee notes. Some citrus notes (orange, faint grapefruit, lemon), pale ale notes (grainy grass, honey, wheat) and buttery malts.
Light-to-medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Bitter, abrupt finish.
Just didn’t like this beer. Not happy that I have three more in my variety 12-pack.

Bottle. Pours a clear, light orange color with a decent frothy head. Light hoppy aroma. Nothing too overpowering. Sweet tangy after thought as well. Dry, hoppy finish. Nice balance between the grapefruit and the hops. Decent beer, but I would still go with their IPA.

Thanks to hophead22 for this rare treat! Pour is copper with a slight haze and a smallish white head. Aroma is earthy, pine hops, citrus hops, slight sulfur, and mild cookie malt. Flavor is subtle yet has some complexity. Flavor is true to nose except that hops are more floral early and citrus later on. Finish is cookie malt. Very light and drinkable pale ale. Hops are smooth and citrusy; this is easy drinkin’. ACHops (1584) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2013
12 oz bottle, out of the bottle. Aroma is a bit of malt and fresh hop notes. Taste is crisp caramel malt and nicely bitter piney hops. I wouldn’t describe them as "resinous" by any means, but... well hopped for a pale. Tasty and a nice pale. dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 30, 2014
Hazy golden orange. Citrus aroma, light but decent amarillo hop. Citrus hop flavour but really lacking in what this could be in a single hop apa. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2014
Light and smooth. Highly drinkable. Really needs to notch up the flavor though. It’s good for what it is, but it could be so much more. can8ianben (1554) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Smooth and drinkable. This is one fine PA. I could drink this one all day long. Orange/yellow in color with a thick white head. Spicy pine notes in the nose with a clean bitter finish.
