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

On tap @ Ladyface. Reviewed from notes.

A: Slightly hazy, pale yellow with 1 finger white head and some random lace.

N: Floral, citrus, some malt notes.

T: Similar to the nose with some piney resin and a notable nutty quality from the hemp seeds. Some balance from malt.

M: Medium body and good carbonation. Dry and bitter finish.

O: Not really that impressed with this one. The Cascade hops are nice, but there is just something a little odd here. Perhaps it's the hemp seeds. I just can't put my finger on it.

3.43/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Look: Golden yellow with about a 1/4 inch head and ok retention with some circular lacing

Smell: Very muted scents in this guy. Hints of straw and just a hint of floral hops

Taste: Interesting floral/perfume note upfront with cascade hops on the backend end

Mouthfeel: Thin and good amount of carbonation and a bit dry

Overall: It is an ok pale ale but nothing to spectacular worth a try however.

On-tap at Ladyface

A: The pour is a very pale yellow color with a light haze and a white head on top.

S: Smells rather faintly of citrus hops. There just really isn't much of an aroma to this beer. Sort of watery with a light malt/bread sweetness. Some hints of sweet fruit and maybe a floral note or two.

T: The flavor is just as bland. Mostly pale malt flavor, not much in the way of hop flavor, a little bit of bitterness and floral hop character. Sort of watery, maybe a touch of grass and lemon rind.

M: Light bodied with low to medium carbonation.

O: After the previous hoppy beer (the IPA), I was hoping this would be good. I was let down.

On tap at The Library in Santa Monica.

Light lemon orange pour with 2-fingers light cream head. Thin retention and medium lace.

Nice earthy citrus pine mix in the nose. Nothing too crazy, just a nice mix for a pale ale.

Orange peel hits the tongue. Dry hop finish just short of arid, again very nice for a pale. Mild bitters in the finish.

Medium body, but strong for the style.

Very easy drinker.
