Nice dry hop aroma. Session able at 5.4% abv very balanced and clean beer. True to the style of an American Pale Ale. Nice touch with the mount hood hops. thetmaxx (917) - West Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 25, 2012
On cask at Rubicon. Iíve had this before, just never rated... Nice head with lots of lacing. Aroma is really orangey like its got lots of citrus hops. Very low Carbonation, not really all that bitter, but it is a pale ale. This is a really good beer I order when I know its on tap somewhere... J_man (996) - Tustin, California, USA - DEC 31, 2011
On tap at Ten 22 in downtown Sacramento. Piney, fresh hop aromas coming off a clear copper body. Immediate resiny pine flavors balanced by a smooth malt base. Finishes dry with a lingering earthy bitterness. Delicious IPA.

Off the tap at the brew pub. Thin head with medium straw colored body.
The aroma is great: grapefruit and lemon.
The taste is smooth with a good dose of malt and moderate bitterness.
The texture is crisper with moderate carbonation and medium body.
Itís a nice, easy drinking ale and flavorful. bhensonb (15094) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 20, 2007
Aroma of amber malts supported by hop which seems neither citrus nor pine. Copper color with traces of a white head. Starts with what seems to be medium malt (not sweet, but the flavor seems there). Hop is difficult to pin down as to "flavor", but itís strongly there.* This is what one might imagine a strongly hopped dry medium brown ale to be, if such can be imagined. Hops are strongly present in the finish, but this is no NW double IPA.
*Bar staff indicated hops are Mount Hood, strong version of a German hop.

Tap. Pours clear dark gold with a medium, frothy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is fruity esters, floral, pine, and citrus hops with biscuit malt. Flavor is medium hops and bitterness, light malt and moderate fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. batneil (710) - - FEB 17, 2013
Clear amber colour with a small head. Crisp aroma, slight fizz and caramel aftertaste. (K) badhack (554) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Full bodied flavor with citrus hops and malt. Color between honey and amber and easy to drink. Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Nose of biscuit, cracker, hints of citrus. Pours a clear amber with thin non-lasting head and moderate lacing. The taste is overall bitter with a malt backbone. Medium body and medium crisp carbonation. Overall, an enjoyable hoppy pale ale. Braudog (6675) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2008
Draft pint at the brewpub. Amber beer with just a thin top. Tangy, with a metallic hop, and a light caramel flourish. Sessionable, surely. (#3419, 4/12/2008)
