On tap at the tasting room, very nice pale ale here.has a nice earthy aroma and taste with pleasant hops in the background.
This was my second taster after their barrel aged scotch ale, and it was more of a lateral movement then down. And let me tell you, that scotch is the best they have, as its absolutely awesome.

On tap at Inland Empire Brewing Company in Riverside, CA.

Pours a hazy gold with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Thin rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and slight herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with earthy herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a medium 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 an above average beer with a hop presence that seems unrefined.

Sampled at the brewery in Riverside on Saturday, tasters were a dollar each and I had two of these, reviewed from notes on my phone, tasted so much like the IPA it was scary with just less hops

A-Light golden orange yellow color, two inch soapy white head, some retention, decent lacing too
S-Strong malts and mostly caramel and biscuit, mild hops, grassy accents, yeast, and soft citrus
T-Starts off with bread, toasted malts and caramel in the middle, mild citrus and hops in the aftertaste, does not change much as it warms except for a less dry qualities
M-Toasty, sweet, and malty, thin to medium bodied, moderate level of carbonation, taste does not linger
D-Could drink a couple of these, not too filling, not much alcohol and none of it comes through in the taste, a little thick for a pale but still has decent drinkability

This was more true to its style but this new brewery needs to do something to distinguish there beers more, not joking when I say that you can do a blind tasting with their blonde, IPA, and this and could barely tell the differences between all of them, might drink again, probably worth trying

A - Light copper, with a slim white head. No lace to speak of.

S - Caramel, tropical fruits, flowers and grass.

T - Caramel and tropical fruit flavors hit first. Some bready maltyness and floral, grassy hops in the middle and back.

M - Medium bodied, with light, tight carbonation. Quick, bright finish.

D - As is the trend for IE Brewing's beers, this is made to be a session ale.

A solid brew. May have the most depth of the bunch, but lacks the hop presence i like in a pale ale.
