Poured a golden-copper color with a small white head. Nose is had an assertive hoppiness with floral and citrus notes. Taste was light caramel malts, floral with some citrus, very smooth and pretty crisp. Mouthfeel was good and refreshing. Small hop bite on the end. Best beer at Pinnacle Peak in my opinion.

4/5  rDev +9.6%

Appearance: clear orange in color with a 1" head that lingers a while. Some spotty lacing develops.

Smell: some oranges slices and bits of hop bitterness rise from the glass and are easy to pick up.

Taste: typical west coast pale ale here, as the caramel, orange tones, and nice bitterness produce a simple but well balanced ale.

Mouthfeel: crisp from start to finish. Slightly bitter aftertaste that turns a bit citric as time passes. Medium bodied beer.

Drinkability: this is a fine session pale ale. This seemed extremely fresh which may have helped my impression.

3.6/5  rDev -1.4%

Appearance – This one poured a light orange in color and was crystal clear. The waitress managed to get a respectable head off the tap that showed great retention and left some nice lacing on the inside of my soda glass.

Smell – The aroma here is very light. I can pick up some delicate citrus hops and a bit of American grain, but you really have to work for it.

Taste – The strong grain was surprising based on the subtle bouquet. The floral hops that I missed at the nose came on strong as well at the taste. The ale finished with an artificial orangy sweetness.

Mouthfeel – This light to medium-bodied Pale Ale was almost like a lager in its feel. They really did a good job of smoothing out the rough American grain.

Drinkability – This is an easy-going ale that was a bit different. There wasn’t a hint of bitterness to it and the beer seemed almost like a lager. I liked it, though. I guess that’s all that counts.
