Tap at the Bruery. Pours to a murky brassy body with a creamy white head. Dripping with hops. Damn those are fresh hops. Bitter but juicy. True west coast style. Dank and fruity. Delicious!

Overall, more of a lager than as the classified APA, some mild citrus notes but not much beyond it. mrtripod (34) - USA - FEB 17, 2013
Tasty is an under statement. If you are a hop head where flavor and not sheer ibu is king, then you have hit the end of the rainbow. Peacehammer (627) - California, USA - DEC 17, 2012
pale orange nice citrus grapefruit nose. Easy drinking and hoppy, but not assaulting. Quite nice. JoeTheYounger (1195) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - NOV 6, 2012
On tap at bruery. Golden pour thin white head. Citrus and pine aroma. Taste is malty up front but finishes slightly bitter with a definite hop presence. Nice one.

Draft at the Bruery. Clear amber pour, sticky off-white head. Resinous hops, sweet peach-tropical fruitiness, citrus, and light sweetness. Nice refreshing, pretty tasty. m4rest88 (390) - Beverly Hills, California, USA - OCT 21, 2012

Tap @ brewery. Hazy gold pour with a froth of white foam. Arona is light, fresh hops but no real pine or bitterness. Taste is light fresh hops and a clean malt backbone but not much else. Okay. ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 14, 2012
A - Served a golden orange color with a thin finger of white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some good lace.
S - Aroma is full of citrus hop with lots of grapefruit and a bit of pine. There is a bit of sweet caramel malts in the background.
T - Starts off with lots of fresh citrus and grapefruit hops with some good bitterness and some pine. Through the middle, the sweet caramel malts comes through a bit with some more hop flavor. The finish is a mix of earthy citrus hops with some bitterness that lingers.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a nice dry finish.
D - Very drinkable. Really nice fresh hop pale ale. The hop profile was really nice and there was a good balance.
