3.88/5 rDev +9.3%
Pours a clear gold with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Thin streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and slight herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and pine flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice hop profile that makes for a crisp and tasty pale ale.

Pale golden color with a nice foam in the glass with every pour. Very light mouthfeel with virtually no malty body. Nose of flowery hops. The thin, light, and crisp style of Pale Ale. Resiny and a little hot with a lingering piney taste. Flavors include some herbal notes with cilantro and alfalfa. Some warm notes of malt, finally, with a light cracker taste.
Quite drinkable with the moderate alcohol content and should appeal to the hop afficianado. Brewer rates this at 40 IBUs with Cascade, Chinook, and Simcoe hops. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Bottleworks in San Diego for a surprisingly modest $4.15. Yet another brewery to show up out of nowhere in the San Diego region.

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.

Thanks for sharing this with me, VaTechHopHead!
Clear golden and light amber with a moderately-sized off-white head. Some sticky lacing. Pretty enough pale.
Floral hop elements and a bit of a pine aroma as well. Some definitely grain and pale malt for balance. Decent, and the best aspect of this beer.
Moderately bitter, faint floral hop elements, and bready, cereal, pale malts combine for a somewhat simple, drinkable, pale ale.
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Good enough, but an exciting offering.

A: Pours a clear golden color with a one finger foamy white head. Fades a bit quickly, but this has a good look.
S: A pretty light aroma, but has a nice floral and pine hop aroma with some cereal and biscuity malt. Nothing amazing, but it does smell good.
T: It's light on flavor as well, but it has some good notes of floral hops, honey, light cereal malt and some caramel. It's not the best pale ale out there, but it's both approachable and drinkable. A pale ale nearly everyone will like, though maybe not love.

Poured a golden orange clear color with one finger of off-white head when I got it. Good amount of foamy icy lacing along the sides on the way down. Above average retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled floral hops, lemon grass, orange, tangerine, yeast, bread and wheat.
Tasted grass, wheat, lemon, honey, orange zest and floral hops.
Light body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Abrupt, slightly bitter finish.
A pretty good pale ale overall. Nice for the style.
