Finally got to try this one, nice pungent skunkiness to the aroma and flavor, some citrus with a touch of cereal. Approachable and easy to drink, decent hoppiness for an extra pale.

slowrunner77 (11289) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 17, 2017
Can. Would have expect a little dankness from the name, but none to be had. Pleasant if light grapefruit and pine, with an undercurrent of bready cracker malts.

Pours clear golden orange with good white head which lasts. Aromas of pine, grass, leafy hops with nice gentle malt and a hint of citrus. Good carbonation and reasonable mouth feel . Taste is lemon, grapefruit, pine and a nice balance of malt. Also some orchard fruit. Medium sweet and moderate bitterness.

Pours a clear pale Amber color with a thin white head. The aroma is malty and bready. Flavor is more the same with some grapefruit hops.

trapped (2788) - New York, TURKEY - FEB 15, 2017
Draught @ Malt & Mold. Clear yellow with medium sized foamy white head, very faint malt aroma, medium carbonation, lightly bitter malty taste, thin body, abrupt finish with slight bitter aftertaste. Does not realy taste very much like a pale ale, more of a lager.

ffaoe (678) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - FEB 5, 2017
faint pine aroma. gold and slightly hazy in color with nice head. taste is very short lasting of slight pine hop notes and very faint underlying malt note. pretty dissapointing

SinH4 (4164) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2017
Can on a flight from Seattle to Amsterdam. Hazy copper color with eggshell head. Aroma is piney hops, grapefruit, toasted malts, caramel. Taste is piney, grapefruit, toffee, toasted malts, earthy. Bitter finish, oily mouthfeely full-bodied. Better than expected, this is quite a classic West Coast Pale Ale.

Decent, but not great, it's easy drinking but lacks anything special. Less hops coming through than most pale ales.
