On tap while in L.A. Frankly, I found this beer to be extremely average, at best. It had a decent pine hop to it, but really found it to be one dimensional. Clear golden color with little to no head retention. The beer was smooth and did have a decent bitter aftertaste. Other than that, I would probably try other beers first.

On tap at Beer Bully in Los Angeles, CA. Served in a shaker pint 12/10/2014.

A- Golden, clear body with half finger white head and no retention. Lots of lacing.

S- Grainy mild sweetness, minerals, a hint of citrus but not very much. It does not smell bad or off, there just is very little aroma outside of a grainy sweetness here.

F- Grainy malt, mild sweetness, hint of yeasty minerals, very minimal hop aroma. Mild breadiness, minimal depth of flavour. This is quite watery and lacking any substantial flavour.

M- Thinner bodied, very drinkable although lacking a good bit of flavour. Refreshing, drinkable and that's about it.

O- This is not a bad pale ale by any means, but there is very little that stands out about it, either. Would pass this one over in the future.

This beer is a great session ale. I could drink it day and night. I love light malt, heavy hop style beers and this beer fits the bill.
