On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Clear golden and light amber. Thin near-white head. Irregular lines and spiderwebs of light stick left down the glass.

Citrus zest, floral, light biscuit, and a little sweetness in the aroma. Simple and straightforward. Smells like a mild version of many of Lagunitas's beers.

Not a hugely flavorful beer. Mild citrus zest, floral notes, some biscuit, and mild caramel sweetness combine nicely, but this simply doesn't have a lot of flavor. Unlike many low ABV IPAs brewed these days by the likes of Alpine or Societe, for example, this one tastes particularly light, low in alcohol, and somewhat boring.

Thinner in bodied than preferred, with low-moderate carbonation.

A fairly boring session IPA, though without flaw.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Westover Beer Garden. Poured into a plastic solo cup.

Interesting but rather fruity and definitely the wrong type of fruitiness for me. I might say that this beer is a hopped up version of a Shock Top.

A - Pours a clear pale golden color with a small white head (low head probably due to the bartenders pour).

S - Slightly sweet, light fruit and a tiny bit of piney resin.

T - Pale malts, orange and some bitterness (bitterness is overwhelmed by the orange so hard to further describe, at least for me).

MF - Light body, dry finish.

Serving type: on-tap

on-tap @ Belmont Station.
from notes.

Pale golden with a foamy, white head that clings to the glass.

Big, fruity hop notes in the nose. The fruit notes are there as well as a big dose of fresh pine needles.

Medium body, fizzy foamy carbonation.

A very nice pale ale. The pine needle notes were a pleasant surprise, as I didn't pick much up in the nose. I was also very pleasantly surprised with the low ABV for such a aromatic and flavorful beer.
