3.15/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Purchased in Poway CA at Distellers Market. Pours A orangey yellow with a thin head that fades quickly. Very little lacing. Smell is very nice with plenty of hops and fruit in the nose. Thin mouthfeel, lots of carbonation. Very hoppy in the taste but the thing that jumped out to me was the citrus on the palate. Hoppy and citrus. Almost to the point of an ipa as far as hop flavors go. A nice pale ale.

3.68/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.25

drank 3/14/14 - no bottle date

a: hazy golden burnt caramel orange with a 2 finger solid cooked marshmallow head

s: hops right away, not really in the bitter sense. dank mango, pineapple, piney. PNW smelling. strawberry? then there is some thick dank caramel-y malt smell. hint of pepper. finishes with juicy tropical fruit and bready yeast

t: more bitter than the smell indicated. its a one sided piney/grapefruit bitterness with a HINT of that dank ripe mango in there. middle of the mouth grassy and earthy (think cold tea). finishes with just a hint of sweetness from tropical fruit and zesty citrus

m: pretty light actually. carbonation isn't that high either

o: this is the kind of beer i can see someone liking more as they drink. my first impression is that the flavor is a little to unbalanced and one dimensional. the disadvantage is that it misses out on a bunch of tropical fruit flavors i think would work well. the advantage is that it has a light mouthfeel and is easy to drink - though beware this is more bitter than you'd expect from the nose. in the end i'd like a little less bitter and more fruity. mouthfeel is good for session beer

Had this beer on tap at McGhee's Tavern in town. 22 oz glass -

This beer was a clear pale yellow, with a 1/2" white foam head, and lively carbonation. The aroma was dominated by pale malt, backed by light citrus hops. The taste was also dominated by malt and backed by a nice light citrus hop bitterness. The mouthfeel was medium body, with nice carbonation. There was some lacing down the glass sides.

This beer was very tasty and pleasant to drink. It was dominated by malt but backed with a nice bitterness. Great beer for someone that doesn't think they like craft beer.

3.59/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Single 12 ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine. Into a pint glass it goes. On to the beer:

Going into the light orange shade with a semi-creamy head on top. Visible carbonation bubbles run through the beer. Good quantities of lace leaves itself around the glass. The aroma brings sweet grapefruit, pine, some resin, and a kiss of diacetyl. Smells like an "old school" APA.

Taste has some grapefruit juice. There's a tint of caramelizationn of the malt and some lemon and resin. A little astringent is the overall flavor too. It's a little lighter per style, and has an agreeable crispness which cleans the palate.

Solid pale ale.

Strong nose of hop aroma. Citrus pine off the start, just what I like in a California pale ale. Lower ABV and a drinkability with an almost IPA type flavor. Approachable and session able. Exactly how a cascade base pale should be. Subtle hints of Simcoe and Chinook add to the aroma, it must be late edition hop or dry hopped. Clean with nice lace on the glass. Could be a top pale ale offering from San Diego.
