4/5 rDev +9.3%
A very solid Extra Pale ale from the same guy who brews all of the Tustin beers.
The bartender recommended this very highly and I have to say he was on the money.
Pours darker that straw but seems to lighten up once the vivid effervescence subsides. White, loose head that dissipates quickly.
Great refreshing flavor that is reminiscent of a high quality hoppy pilsner, just like the nose predicts.
Bubblier than I was expecting but a nice mouthfeel that carried the flavors.
Great beer. i'll drink it any time.

On-tap at Tustin Brewing
Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a white head. Smells pretty nice, actually. Lots of citrus hops with notes of grapefruit and orange. A decent floral aroma, some light bread notes, too. A bit watery on the flavor. Good bitterness, but sort of a grassy hop flavor without as much citrus and floral character. A bit of malt sweetness. Light in body with medium carbonation.

3.8/5 rDev +3.8%
Appearance: Arrives with a just a bit of a head capping the clear amber liquid; spotty lacing is left behind
Smell: Piney, with an undertone of pith and a hint of caramel
Taste: A bit of caramel to get things started and then the hops take over; piney bitterness with a bit of pith that verges on lemon peel
Mouthfeel: Medium body with lively carbonation
Overall: Not a bad beer at all; refreshing and nicely balanced

On tap at Tony's Darts Away in Burbank, CA.
Pours a clear yellow with a foamy tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus fruit, citrus zest, and slight tropical fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with a medium hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but I think this one smells better than it tastes.
