Consumed November 23rd, 2013 at the brewery.

Golden orange with a fine white foam head.

Vague Cascade hops aroma - pine and grapefruit. Mild.

Thin caramel malt flavor. Some pine and grapefruit on the finish. Significant bitterness but not out of control.

Medium-bodied and well-carbonated.

As measured against an industry standard like SNPA, this is a little lacking.

On tap @ the source

Look: Deep orange color with a 1/4 inch tan head and ok retention with great circular lacing

Smell: Pale malt upfront with a bit of citrus and piney hops

Taste: More malt than hops on the flavor profile. Traces of caramel and citrus hops can be found throughout the beer

Mouthfeel: Thin body and mild carbonation

Overall: I personally prefer hoppy pale ales and this one is more malty than hoppy. The beer itself is solid with great drinkability

On tap at Kinetic Brewing Company in Lancaster, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy latticework of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest. Taste is much the same with a mild 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 that is drinkable but fairly basic.
