4.35/5  rDev +13%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz stubby brown bottle, capped. Pours out a much lighter yellow than I expected for a Pale Ale. I would simply call it "yellow". Lovely large, fluffy white head that seems to keep growing.

Smell is hoppy and grainy. Classic American citrus hops are what come through most for me. I also pickup some lemony citrus notes. Taste is again on the lighter side and really adds to the drinkability. Solid grainy malt middle that leads to a perfect balance of hops and bitterness.

This is a very easy drinking beer that is on the dry side. This is a beer that you could really drink a few of as it's lighter in body but full of flavor. They call it a California Pale Ale but I would like to make it my House Pale Ale.
