3.53/5  rDev -3%

Poured from a draft into a pint glass at San Diego Brewing Company at San Diego, Calif. Color was honey golden. Appeared to be an inch of head. Minimal lacing. Lots of film all the way down the glass.

Smelled grainy and grassy first, but some light citrus hops in there as well.

Tasted grassy, earthy and grainy. Bitter finish on the tongue after.

Medium body. Mild carbonation. Fairly drinkable.

Just an okay beer. A bit too grainy for me.

3.85/5  rDev +5.8%

Poured a yellow beer, big time head, large bubbles. Good hop aroma, fairly neutral in terms of pine/citrus.

Light body, ample hopping relative to the body. A more sessionable pale than even their draught pale ale. I dunno, regular SNPA is plenty sessionable for me. This is a little tamer, but definitely has its place on a hot day. A little bit grassy at times. Bitterness very light, much the same with the sweetness.

On tap at Bruery Provisions.

A: The beer pours a fairly clear golden color with a white head.

S: A nice citrus hop nose up front with lots of grapefruit and lemon peel. Quite a bit of floral hops with lots of biscuity malts. A touch of grass and pine on the back end.

T: Slightly sweet with a fair amount of bread and biscuit. Lots of grapefruit and floral hop flavors with a light bitterness. Some hits of pine and grass on the back end.

M: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O: A fairly well done pale ale from Sierra Nevada. Could have used a bit more citrus, but not bad otherwise.

I had this on tap at the Beachwood BBQ in Long Beach.
The pour is a clear medium to dark orange with a near white head. Very hoppy pine scented, with some citrus tones as well, orange, Lemons, Grapefruit. The taste went the other way. More sweet malty and bready. Average body and carbonation, about where they should be. Overall, it was a drinkable beer, but pretty forgetable.
