Bottle picked up at a shop in MD. Pours light gold with a small but tight white head. Nose is grassy hops, light pale maltiness, bready & piney notes. Flavor is light malt, with toasty & bready aspects, perhaps a touch of astringency with honeysuckle & piney hops. Finish has a nice toast aspect with tingly pine.

Draft at Encinitas Alehouse. Slightly cloudy golden amber pour, with small white head. Citrus, hops, lightly sweet malt, light fruit, and grain. At 4% this is a nice session pale ale. Should be higher rated if based on abv. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - JUL 10, 2011

Bottle thanks to Douglas! Pours a clear gold with the slightest red hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces nicely. Aroma is a bit mild with light grassy hops and a bread and light grains backbone. Flavor is a whole different story with nice citrus and tropical fruit notes with some sweet grains and just a bit of bitterness in the finish. Real nice.

Draft at Owen & Engine. Pours a pleasing gold with a sticky white head. Nose is really fresh and nice with catty and citrusy hops, very robust hop component. Some biscuity malt peaks through as well. On taste, very solid. Good level of bitterness and hop flavor, clean and very refreshing. Nice having a 4% beer to sip on. Fantastic extra pale. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Sampled on 6/25/2011. This American Pale Ale pours a very clear medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Bottled on 3/16/11. Small to medium sized thin white foamy head, with nice lacing. The aroma is fruity and sweet, touch of floral hops. A light to medium bodied American Pale Ale. The malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and citrusy. A nice balanced APA. Decent carbonation. Perhaps a touch thin tasting, but might be more a fact of the 4% alcohol than anything else. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bottle:   Golden in color, hazy, large frothy white head, nice lacing, few strong streams of carbonation.   Soft hoppy nose, a little earthy and grainy.   Just a hint of citrus and something else a little fruity.   Muted hops on the tongue, soft earth and graininess.   Not as all out organic as others in that its not overly soily, which is fine by me.   Fairly tasty, if a little middle of the road.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Goes down fairly easy.   For an organic American Pale Ale, this one is a-okay in my books.
