Had this at my last visit to the Reno BJs at the end of summer/beginning of fall. Pours out a nice orange and caramel appearance, decent head. Total lack of dry hop aroma. I'm already telling myself how it can't possibly measure up to the Pirahna pale ale.

Decent taste, bitter, the hops finally reveal themselves, and they aren't in low supply, I guess maybe they just used some Simcoe for bittering/flavor additions and didn't use any for dry hopping. Good caramel malt addition. A good beer, just not as good as Pirahna was my verdict.
