Thanks merc for bringing a growler of this to the tasting.

The beer pours a slightly hazy amber golden yellow with a loose white head that dissipates quickly...looks like a wheat beer. The nose is hoppy with notes of bubblegum and citrus fruit. Taste-wise the beer drinks with a lot more grain/wheat sweetness and has a hearty hop profile that's reminiscent of the same citrus fruits found in the nose. The mouthfeel is sweet with a well balanced citrus hoppiness and a slightly lingering wheat graininess. This beer is damn drinkable and worth seeking out for pint or growler.

On-tap at the source, on to the beer:

This pale ale is goldenrod colored and topped with a small head with a few patches of lace and light creamy retention. The aroma smells like a hybrid of Belgian and American pale ales, bringing notes of floral, honey, perfume, and The Bruery's house yeast. If it leans in one direction, it leans towards the American side. On tasting, you can't help but notice the strong presence of floral and pine, which rides the accent of fruity house yeast. It's a clean beer which is refreshing and makes as a good everyday beer.

On tap at the brewery. Mild and light yellow color, thin 1/3" white head on it. Aroma was almost belgian. Certainly wasn't hoppy. Really straddled the line aroma wise between belgian and American.

Lacks hop taste. Lacks hop bitterness. It continues to straddle style guidelines. Tastes like a grand cru of a belgian pale ale, american pale ale and a saison. In fact, flavor wise, it tends to lean toward the saison side of things, with its dry, light and mild earthy pepper aspect. Definitely hides any hopping.

I don't really get what the Bruery was trying to get at with this beer. Uninteresting to the max.

Murky, darker yellow with a bit of gold. Creamy, persistent near-white head. Spots of stick left down the glass. Appropriately pretty pale ale.

Some citrus hop elements peeking through around simple bread and grain notes. Simple and straightforward and not terribly aromatic. A touch of sweetness as well.

Moderate bitterness, some mild citrus and pine elements peeking through, and sweet grains and bread. Incredibly drinkable.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp. Disappearing.

A nice, thirst-quenching pale ale made for SoCal's warm weather days.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: A very hazy pale yellow body with a lacy white head.

S: Very similar to Sierra Pale Ale but with a very slight Belgian spiciness to it. It has very little hop character.

T: There is a little hop bite up front with no citrus, pine, or fruit flavors. The slightly spicy malty background has some pepper and earthy tones to it.

M: Nice body and carbonation but both could be a little heavier.

O: A good pale ale but nothing to go out of your way for. Like I said earlier, on par with Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
