Wow, very surprised at the ratings. Paid 4+shipping for a bottle I ordered online, and was very disappointed by the quality of the beer itself.
Slightly hazy, honeyed amber color with a mild white head. Smells like an amber with more malt than hops playing in, with some metallic scents too. Thin and VERY bland was my initial reaction. Not offensive, but just very poor in general. 1/2 a bottle later, no different and I didn’t waste my time drinking the rest. Very watery hop flavor that made this drink just like a watery iced tea. Too muted a flavor in all respects. Not worth the price by a longshot. Hell, I wouldn’t pay 1.99 for a bomber. Many better pales out there, and I wouldn’t waste my time with this one.

They have both filtered and unfiltered. This rating is for the unfiltered and rated at MBC. Small white head that was mostly lasting, very little lacing, no visible carbonation, transparent, and a light orange hue. Nose was hoppy, caramel note, grapefruit and pine. Flavor was caramel, hoppy and pine. Smooth mouthfeel and light body. Good brew, but a little more flavor would have been a welcomed addition.

ABUSEDGOAT (2849) - California, USA - SEP 26, 2007
Lighter amber, moderate head, decent lacing and retention. Citric and grapefruity aroma, some caramel. Aroma was inviting but flavor was unexciting. Relatively low bitterness, medium to light body, some sweetness.

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - SEP 22, 2007
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear gold with a airy head. Pine and citrus nose, but has a slight metallic smell. Flavor is similiar (without the metallic) with the addition of caramel malts. Nicely balanced with a dry long bitter finish. This is a good APA, very fruity, very easy to drink.

3.2
riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2007
Toasty malt aroma with a slight floral smell as well. Pours a copper color with a huge rocky head. Flavor is sweet toasty malt and a little bit of funky floral hop bitterness, but relatively mild. Finishes sweet and has a very zesty mouthfeel. Medium bodied and medium carbonation.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - AUG 19, 2007
On tap at the brewery. I’m not really a pale ale fan, but I wanted somehting a little lighter. Very clean and subtle, with a smooth, slightly sweet flavor that lingers. Very nice beer. Will have again.

Sold in both the filtered and unfiltered versiopns at the brew pub. Unfiltered: 6-4-7-3-14 This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a hazy orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malt hop. . The nice flavor contained notes of malt and hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again but was missing the caramel I like in my pale ales. Filtered: 3-3-6-3-11 This draft brew from the brew pub poured a head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a . The mild aroma was malt hop. crisp and clean with a mellow hoppy aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of malt and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

cyanescens (159) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2007
Decent beer but lacking in originality. Solid, crisp, refreshing, drinkable. Golden in color, citrus hop taste. Thinner, not too much maltiness going on.

bhensonb (15753) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Convincing citrus aroma. This is going to be good. Medium dark amber color with a white head that leaves big bubbles in the middle and laces lightly on the fringes. Super citrus start, but there is a strong malt accompaniment. For some reason burnt rubber comes to mind. That doesn’t seem to be a bad thing here, it just comes to mind. The bitter is fantastic, and it seems to finally hide the malt. The finish leaves grapefruit around the back edges of the tongue. Rather full bodied, reasonably carbonated. Fairly long grapefruity finish.
