This is a very easy drinking pale ale...not real assertive but it has some redeeming qualities.

There is a light citrus flavor of overripe oranges....the same impression is evident on the aroma.

Body is light side of medium..

Slightly hazy look but drinks pretty clean...

This would be a nice beer for a BBQ...just enough flavor to keep it interesting but nothing overwhelming. Certainly as far as APA's go this is nothing special but it has its place.

Beer was quite memorable in taste, no notes, hopefully somebody else has tried this gem. I was not expecting this beer to be so tasty but it was despite the name making it seem like a Blonde Ale. True APA, crisp and clean, perhaps a Session in the making. Would suggest but nobody I have talked to has heard of it so I do not know if they still brew it. Tried it in April 2012.

Pours a semi-cloudy golden, with nice white head. Lace is loopy and attractive.

Nose is floral and citrus hoppy, with a touch of sweet malts. Pleasant.

Taste is nice hoppy grapefruit and plenty of citrus with a dry bitterness at the finish. A solid, hopped-up wheat beer that's a pleasure to drink. Would easily enjoy more of these.

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

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Stone Ruination IPA pint glass
From: VONS in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $15.99 (w/ VONS card) for a variety Redhook/Kona/Widmer 12-pack
Purchased: Feb. 21, 2014
Consumed: Feb. 21, 2014
Misc.: Born on date of Dec. 5, 2013

Poured a golden straw clear color with two fingers of frothy off-white head. Light semi-layered lacing on the sides of the glass. Very good retention on the top of the glass all the way down.

Smelled floral hops, citrus hops, caramel, pine, light orange rind, honey wheat, grass and unknown spices. Very inviting.

Tasted not quite as good as the smell, but decent nonetheless. Got floral hops, caramel, honey, wheat, grass, soapy notes and light pine, all with a bitter aftertaste.

Light body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, but refreshing finish.

Really enjoyed this pale ale, which I originally thought was a blonde. Would definitely have it again.

3.68/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pale cloudy gold with an excellent head, good lacing, and plenty of carbonation.

Smell: Floral and citrus hops, caramel.

Taste: Floral and citrus hops, caramel, wheat, and grass.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a bitter hop aftertaste.

The Verdict: Not bad. Entirely drinkable, and much better than I expected from Red Hook. More flavor and more hops than they usually stick into their beers.
