COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Buddy, pal, mate, brother (or sister) from another mother, compadre . . . sidekick. All of these are ways to describe someone or something that is always at your side. Sidekick extra pale ale is one of those things. This golden colored ale is loaded with juicy citrus and passion fruit hop aroma yet balanced with malt and hop character. A true companion.

hotstuff (5144) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 27, 2015
Rated on 7-18-2015 at Three Rivers Beer Review, Fort Wayne, IN. This bottled beer is presented with a very small ivory head that is mostly lasting, transparent yellow body, very little fast rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is citrus and pine hops, fruity and spicy. This beer’s flavor is moderately bitter, citrus, pine hops and fruity. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. A quaffable APA beer that is easy drinking.

Nice citrus hop aroma, pours a clear pale straw with a large white head. Fruity hops are the predominant flavor, with a lingering tropical fruit finish. Not much going on in the way of malts in this one. If you’re a fan of more bitter beers, this is a nice session ale

klaing (282) - Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Cloudy lemon with frothy head and moderate carbonation. Grassy aroma. Light sugary malts balanced with citrus rind hops. Not impressive on first taste but improves half way down the glass, especially the hop profile. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle purchased as a single at the Hy Vee near Drake in Des Moines, Iowa. Swirl by stamped 12/30/15 on the bottom of the can. The pour is a hazed yellow gold with a small white head. The aroma is faint grass, dank and a bit of resin. The taste is the nice resin, softly dank with lemon citrus and cereal grain underneath the hop. The palate is light bodied with soft natural carbonation and a dry mineral resin in the soft bitter finish. Solid Pale Ale.

katrinaez (1924) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Exactly what they said and are going for. The hops add the extra for the almost ipa, but it’s still a lower level of the pale variety. Pine scent and a touch of citrus hops. The taste is refreshing and easy. Not over or underwhelming. Bottle

aracauna (3592) - Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Slightly haze pale yellow. Make sure to work quickly. Beer foams out of the can. Solid apa.
