on draft, pint glass at the Cloverleaf, Caldwell, NJ. on sight, nice golden hue. not much hops in the nose. slightly bitter on the tongue, but not strong. finishes ever so slightly bitter, not much backbite. could use more hops during the finishing stage of the boil or during dry hopped, as well as a little more boil hops. good smooth mouthfeel. just needs more hops, would be a good IPA.

Tap @ Local. Pours clear gold with a bubbly white head. Crisp hops and grass in the aroma, with white grapes. Straw and hops in the front that turns nicely into lemon and resin with drier malt/bread flavors. Very light, shocked to see it was classed as an APA.

Growler shared thanks to largadeer.
Pours clear golden with a one-finger white head and good lacing
Aroma showcases loads of hops for the ABV. Citrusy and herbal, along with a touch of sweet malt.
Flavor is solid for a session beer (in the true sense of the word) like this. Slightly sweet malt with a hop kick that is orangey and herbal, almost tea-like.
Medium-light body with lots of resins attacking your palate.
Overall, wow, this is an excellent a pale ale, especially at 3.5% ABV. I could session the hell out of this, and what do you know, I can even use the verb "session" and not offend the term's tireless defenders when referring to this one.

On tap at Downtown Johnny Brown's (San Diego, CA) on 3/18/09. Served in a pint glass.
Pours a clear copper with a finger of foamy brite-white head. Retention stays rich and frothy, leaving some solid spotty lacing behind. The aroma is floral and fresh smelling, with a touch of hop spices and some light notes of citrus and bread. Not overly assertive but still pleasant.
The taste is similar, with some sturdy pale malt character and some moderate bitterness to it, with a splash of citrus in the back. The mouthfeel is ligher bodied with a thin creaminess to the carbonation and extremely easy feel.
Solid Pale Ale that was quite refreshing and quaffable after a good sized downtown walk on this warm, nearly spring day. Easy body and sessionalbility and this packed just enough flavor to keep me interested. Good lighter offering form Ballast Point.
