I'm gonna say this is one of the better American beers I've tried. Another one is Dortmunder by Great Lakes. Yes I like Sierra Nevadas, Rogues, Stones, etc. But find me a better American Extra Pale Ale. Perhaps, this is just the American style for me. I could drink this more often than an American IPA. This is better than Pennant Pale Ale, which means the water in Utah tastes better than Brooklyn. It's a clean, crisp taste with an indescribable beatuiful golden hue.
Nothing epic about this beer, it is understated, except for the color. No one will be clamoring for hints of plum, citrus, or clove in this one. Unsophisticated, yet great!

12oz. bottle thanks to BigJTrucker
Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that thins. Thick lacing on the glass.
Aroma is really fresh and crisp with dominant hop aroma. Has both notes of citrus and pine and is really well blended to create a fantastic smell. A hint of malt even sneaks in here and there.
Crisp malt taste immediately upfront followed by a wave of delicious hop flavor - just as it smells. An aggressive bitterness hits midway and rides through the finish as it finishes quite dry with a lingering hop flavor. Manages to maintain balance.
Medium-light body, creamy texture, well carbonated.
Wow, this is one impressive brew. I could easily drink this all day long, and at 4% ABV, it's completely possible. I am very pleased I had the opportunity to try this.

Appearance – Light, slightly opaque, golden color
Smell – Fresh, clean hops, with some lemon hints.
Taste – Very refreshing. Piney, citrusy hops hit you well for only being 29 IBU. Got some sour (in a good way), lemony flavors from the hops. Slight malt sweetness. Had a clean, dry finish.
Overall – I was very surprised this beer got only an 80 rating. This would make for a great session beer. I could tip back quite a few of these in the summertime. I thought this had great hop flavor, and sour/sweetness balance for only having a 4% abv. Would've guessed a higher abv on this one. Would definitely have again.

I found this in a local "organic" grocery and picked it up on a whim. I don't have a preference either way for organics (I think it's often a bit of a crock, but that's beside the point).
This beer surprised me. I love a good, crisp, hoppy pale ale, and this delivers nicely. Very clean, light in body, with very refreshing mouthfeel.
Some have described it as thin or watery. I think that's harsh. Don't expect an Arrogant Bastard here, this is indeed a light ale. But if you're looking for something flavorful to bring to a party that can go a long way, it's a winner.
It's become my current go-to for an around-the-house pale ale, and I'd definitely recommend you give it a shot.

What a great Extra Pale Ale. I purchased this at Uptown Market in SW Portland Oregon because the 12 oz bottle was $1.35 and because it was already cold. Imagine my surprise at being refreshed by a pale ale very unlike having sex on a boat (f---ing close to water!) but instead a cocktail of subtle flavors that played on my tongue like they were elementary school kids and it was recess time.
Nice decently lasting very puffy off-white head, not quite totally clear appearance but whatever. Light but not as light colored as I was expecting (was expecting rolling rock color)
Can't tell what it smells like as I am congested.
Tastes amazing, grapefruity hops yielding to grassy hops and leaving a green and black tea-like finish which was extremely compelling. Bitterness is just right and refreshing.
Smooth and refreshingly carby when cold, as it warms it's still okay.

Golden yellow. Just a slight head white head.
Pine and resin in the nose.
Whoa tons of flavor here. Pear and citrus shine with plenty of pine. Bigger body than anticipate for a session ale. Still loads of hop character. The Amarillo and simcoe blend beautifully with the dry finish. Straw and biscuity notes come through in the malt character.
Really a treat and Iove that all this is packed in a 4% beer.
