There is basically no smell. I guess someone forgot to dry hop this bitch. Also, the taste is very bland. It's kind of like SN pale ale but without the aroma and flavor

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.
