"Decent apa. Floral an lightly fruity tropical aroma and flavor. Sessionable if not a standout. Better than both iPas, though :). Light doughy malt balanced out the hops in the finish." maekchu (4001) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 9, 2013
Draught at The New Old Lompoc 5th Quadrant. From notes. Very light body. Some balance. Slight bitter finish. Good with food,,,, Still, not much going on.

Draft at 5th Quadrant. A pretty straightforward pale ale, not overly exciting. Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Citrus, orange peel aroma with a dash of spiciness. Clear, amber color with gleaming white head. Caramel malt sweetness to start. Hop flavor is restrained but contributes bitterness. Good grassy flavor. Slightly watery body. Very drinkable pale. Could be improved with slightly more dextrin but hops and malt play nicely together. drfabulous (8224) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUL 24, 2010
Draught at brewpub. Not much aroma. Decent overall taste for a pale. Drinkable at its ABV. Not memorable.

[2961-20100626] Tap. Mild faint notes of tarp plastic aroma with some wood chips. Clear, amber orange body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Generic yeast flavour is not watery but it is bland. Medium body. Average.

2010-06-26. Crisp amber body with a nice off-white head and lace. 3+ Mild aroma with some hops, caramel malt character. 6+ Flavour is likewise with a mild bitterness and a sweetish caramel malt core. Average to light palate. Inoffensive but quite tame. On Tap at the brewpub, Portland. BillKismet (4090) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Bronzed body with a ring of head. Easy orange-citrus infused nose. Rather under-bodied with a whiff of citrus. Eh. beernamer (5) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 11, 2010 does not count
Yums! I’m a big pale ale fan and this one is a new favorite. Perfect hop/malt balance. If I brewed this one, I might dry hop some citrusy Centennial or Cascade to give it a tertiary dimension. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2009
