The best review I will give this ale is the appearance. The smell and taste was bitter, bitter and bitter. The color was yellow with an orange hue. Also, I had it on-tap and I couldn't tell the difference between this APA or IPA. The flavor was a bitter weak pine flavor. Blah! I will never purchase this ale again.

Clear amber colored beer with a strong orange colored tinge to it. Good sized white head.

Smell is sweet and floral with a soapy aroma. Strong caramel with mild pine and grapefruit rind.

Starts out mild and slightly sweet with a medium bitterness level. Caramel and not much else, bitterness is substantial. Just not a lot of subtle flavor here, this is just beer.

Mouthfeel is good.

An OK beer from a local brewer.

App- While it was a bit darker in color for an APA it just seemed a bit off putting to me. A small impish head formed and was gone quickly. A touch of lace and that was it.

Smell- You can detect from the nose its hoppy but it was a bit more than that. It was hoppy but had an underlying note I cant place but seemed a bit rough to me.

Taste- It was pretty average maybe a bit above. It had a decent amount of hop bit for an APA and was paired and balanced by some nice malts.

Mouth- Medium bodied and medium carbonated. A bit wet with that residual hop bitter kick to it.

Drink- Thanks to Bman1113vr for this one. It was a nice start to a big tasting and bottle share. I liked the beginning of the beer but it had an off ending. I probably wont come back to this one.

Pours a murky orange with a 1 inch foamy orange-white head that settles to a thin film on top of the beer. Chunky rings of lace form on the glass on the drink down. Tons of tiny sediment particles are suspended in the beer after the pour as well. Smell is a pretty basic with malt and citrus zest hops. Taste is of citrus zest and grapefruit with a malt backbone on the finish. There is a medium hop bitterness that lingers on the palate after each sip. This beer has a light level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good pale ale but nothing all that special really.

Another pale ale. But I've never tasted this one. Coming out of the 22 oucne bottle, on to the beer:

Toasted orange colored with yellow hues. Visible bubbles rise through the beer, many particles of sediment floating in the body upon closer inspection. Solid head retention and a few strings of lace. It's typical pale ale aroma here; bring out the grapefruit and raw leaves.

Bitter grapefruit hits first. Lyche, pine sap, tea leaves follow. Very "old school" American, not the clean version that I tend to really love. It's medium bodied and snappy, leaving a slightly bitter and citrusy aftertaste.

Not as balanced nor clean as I expected. I prefer Figueroa Mountain as my "new discovery", but Tap It APA isn't a bad option.
