3.7/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Consumed July 2nd, 2012. Poured into a standard pint glass.

Beer appears clear yellow, a shade or two paler than "medium". Good carbonation. One finger white head leaves little lacing.

Grainy and juicy aroma. Some bitter wood as well.

A bit of caramel malt up front, some pine and grapefruit as it finishes. Restrained bitterness. There's a lot of hop flavor here.

Dry and a little prickly on the tongue.

This XPA (extra pale ale) is a decent enough effort, but I think I prefer Stone's Levitation in this sub-genre.

On-tap at Eureka!Burger Claremont

A: The beer pours a light amber color with a creamy off-white head and mild lacing.

S: Smells decently hoppy with some citrus and citrus peel notes. There is quite a bit of bready malt and toffee giving it a mild sweetness. There is a light grass note to it and some mild toast notes.

T: somewhat sweet with bread, toffee, and toasted malts. There is a little bit of citrus hoppiness and some floral hop character. Mild bitterness, and not super hoppy overall. Sort of bland and a really short finish.

M: The body is light to medium with a moderate carbonation.

O: Just pretty bland. It has some decent flavor when you take the sip, but it quickly vanishes.

@Eureka!Burger, Claremont, CA

App- This was a golden amber Orange with a ½ finger of head. A good amount of sheen and cling. Fell to a generous pond layer of head.

Smell- A small citrus aroma with a bit of stinging malt behind it. Only a touch of hop oil to it. On a big whiff more wheat came up. A little one sided.

Taste- It's tasty but needs to be thinned out a bit. More malty and spicy forward flavors. Again, a tad one sided with a good bit of grapefruit flavors and only a very small note of hops.

Mouth- Medium bodied and Medium carbonation. A thicker feeling APA with more malts on the residual flavors.

Drink- Overall, its pretty good. Better than average but not wowing by any means. Needs a bit more citrus pop for me.

22 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a Disneyland scotch ale thimble glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are low given the brewery. ABV listed as 5.2%. Acquired at Wally's Wine in Westwood, California.

Served refrigerator cold and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Not paired with food. My second beer of the night.

A: Pours a 2.5 finger head of slight cream, decent thickness, and good retention - though the ABV is merely 5.2%. Colour is a clear boring yellow.

Sm: Pleasant floral hops. Appealing. A mild to moderate strength aroma.

T: Floral hops atop a clean malt foundation. Simple but pleasant. Boring and bland for the style. No layering, complexity, or subtlety. Too full-bodied for the lack of flavour. Imbalanced and badly built.

Mf: Smooth and wet, with entirely too much thickness. Overcarbonated.

Dr: Difficult to drink given its overdone thickness and lack of appealing flavour. I wouldn't get this again. A bad pale ale. Priced pretty high as well, even in Los Angeles. This is a small brewery I won't be supporting.

The lighter style of APA. The brewer calls it an Extra Pale Ale. Clear golden color with very nice suds. Pleasant mouthfeel with just a little substance to it.

Hops are big in the aroma. A nice fresh hop cone smell, more floral than spicy. Some of the pine and citrus rind flavors, but not overly bitter. The bitterness does linger after you've sipped for a while. Though this is more of a quaffing beer. Some malty flavor to start, more biscuit in the aftertaste. Great nose of resiny hops and cereal. I look forward to tasting more from Eagle Rock. They seem to have done a clean job on this light, modest alcohol brew.

22 oz bottle from Best Damn in San Diego. Nice color scheme and graphics on the label. I took the photo.
