look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Nice orange color with a bit of haze. Finger of foam that dissipated after 4-5 sips into fine lacing on the glass. Nose included slightly sweet citrus and grassy hops. Flavor was bitter on the front with a bit of spice on the back end. In em lean mouth feel. Solid.

On tap at Fifty Seven Degrees in San Diego. They describe this as a Pale Ale with wild sage, which is quite a different flavor than the usual spice jar sage. It's a sensationally flavorful beer with that mysterious herbal flavor. The intensely aromatic sage goes nicely with the malty warm flavors.

A lot of tangy sweetness, even a honey flavor. The sage must add some bitterness to the already substantial hops. This is a beer that should appeal to the IPA fans. The sensational aroma lasts down to the end of the glass. It's just a little bitter after drinking half a glass. But if you're interested in beer additive flavors, this is totally unique.

On tap at Breakwater. A hoppy pale ale with wildcrafted sagebrush.

A: Burnished yellow gold with an inch of white foam. 

S: Floral aromatics blend with notes of honey, sage, orange, and tangerine. The hops smell quite good, and the sagebrush is complimentary. Malt is faint, imparting a little cracker.

T: Grapefruit and orange flesh with a light crackery malt presence. The sagebrush is well integrated, pervading all aspects of the flavor and making things more interesting but never overwhelming the palate. The beer is moderately bitter and quite dry.

M: Upper light to lower medium in body with upper medium carbonation.

Overall: A pretty good Pale Ale. Definitely the best beer I've had here today. On a side note, Maverick's is a shell of what it was when Kirk McHale brewed it. They should change the name of that beer out of respect for the original Maverick's, which was awesome.
