Thanks to wethorseblanket for sharing this one at Wowcoolman’s tasting.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy bone colored head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of citrus fruit, citrus zest, and tropical fruit. Taste is much the same with a slightly malty finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a great smell but the taste just doesn’t match up unfortunately.

A: Pours pale yellow with a quarter inch white head which fades to the rim leaving some spotty lace.

N: Huge grapefruit and citrus (tangerine and orange). The Nelson, Citra and Sorachi Ace hops really shine here.

T: Citrus and a touch of pine. Faint malt sweetness.

M: Semi-medium body and carbonation. A bit watery. Mildly bitter and dry finish.

O: Decent PA with a great aroma. So easy to drink.

On-tap at Hollister

The pour is a pale golden color with a white head. Citrus peel hops, floral notes, and a light fruity quality. Some bread and biscuit malt sweetness and a hint of toast. Good grapefruit on the palate, a hint of tangerine, and some mild pine. A moderate bitterness offsets the light sweetness of the bread malt and light toast.

Served out of a Hollister Brewing Co. growler into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass.

A - An extremely light yellow, perhaps one of the most pale pale ales I have seen. A very tiny head that hung around for the duration of the drink.

S - Citrus and floras, very clean. But not to much else going one.

T - The taste is very light and clean to begin, with aspects of fruitiness. The finish is moderately hoppy for the style.

M - Moderate carbonation that doesn't a good job of adding to the beer without becoming a distraction. However, the beer is very light bodied.

O - Overall, this is not the best Pale Ale I have had. It works ok for a summer session, but I wouldn't go out of my way to buy it. For me, it is too light bodied for an APA.
