look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a draft into a pint glass at Station Tavern in San Diego (South Park), Calif. About a finger of head when I got it. Color was caramel orange. Bubble, frothy white lacing on the top. Lots of white film sticking to the sides. Both the lacing and film lasted throughout.

Smelled caramel pale notes. Also wheat and citrus hops. Got a mix of lemon, grapefruit and some orange/tangerine.

Tasted similar to the nose. Got caramel, lemon, orangeish hops and some ginger. Bitter aftertaste.

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Slightly bitter finish.

I can’t believe it took me this long to rate this beer (although I think I’ve had it). Just a great American Pale Ale, although it did get a bit old towards the end. Good beer.

Serving type: on-tap

4.18/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Dark gold almost amber color and nearly clear. Dome like head that lasts. Surprisingly little lace on the glass.

There's a pleasant sweet stone fruit presence to this beer. Apricot? Peach? It's not too strong. I also detect a bit of floral hop, like irises. It works.

Strong grapefruit (almost like sucking a hop pellet) flavor right up front. It's strongest in the swallow which creates a long bitter aftertaste. Rich bodied with a highly elevated carbonation level.

3.76/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass, bottle isn't for some reason. Pours a light yellow orange with a 2 inch white head that leaves behind some nice lace.

Smell is biscuit, caramel, lemon, pine, papaya, and grapefruit.

Taste follows the nose, a little more bitter than the nose would have you aspect, but some biscuity malt and carmel balances the bitterness.

Body is less than medium, plenty of life, a touch dry, and easy drinking.

Overall this is solid, not worth the $9, but good.
