This Baja beer has a nice orangish ruby hue that definitely had some IPA style citrus notes on the nose. I was expecting it to be a little more bitter but there was a slight malt aftertaste that hung around for a bit that balanced out the flavour. This beer was very lightly carbonated and produced a razor thin head.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 12/13/2014. Pours lightly hazy orange amber color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, floral, grass, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of citrus/floral hops and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Light floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, floral, grass, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of citrus/floral hops and bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good English pale ale. All around good balance and robustness of citrus/floral hops and bready malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Darker amber brew with nice tan head. Aroma of caramel, floral hops. Taste is nice balance of malt and hops - sweet caramel at the start transitioning to a crisp floral / grass hops. LIngering hops finish complimented with a lingering of malt sweetness. Medium bodied with medium carbonation and perhaps a bit too malty for the style. Much bettre than corona, I give the guys credit for trying..
