This beer poured a light amber color with a white head. The head faded quickly and did not last for the duration of the beer. The smell was earthy and influenced by the hops. The taste was earthy up front and finished with a slight malt taste. The aftertaste this beer left took a few sips to get used to, and seemed influenced by the choice of malts that went into this beer. The mouthfeel was average, not too thin but not at all heavy. The beer was drinkable once you became accustomed to the aftertaste. Overall, this beer was of average character with a slightly below average taste, I felt it was not characteristic of the Pale Ale style and not as good as other Pale Ales I have had.

XPA is a clear straw color with a moderate sized bubbly white head, head doesn't have much retention and leaves low (almost none) lacing. Smells of light bread, sweet and a little fruity kinda like musty citrus rinds. Aroma is a little too sweet for me.

Nice light fruity taste, a little bready, very sweet finish. A little too sweet for me, but still pretty enjoyable. Mouthfeel is light with above average carbonation, a little creaminess - right on for a Extra PA.

This beer really isn't anything special, but it is light and easy drinking. Was hoping this to be a little more hop forward like Hop Fish and Red Fish. Probably wouldn't go out of my way to buy it again, yet would be happy to drink it if I don't have a lot of options.

12 ounce into pint glass. Just about the clearest beer I've ever seen, its like a funhouse mirror looking through the glass. Bottle art on current run is sweet, with great typography, modern but classic. The taste, while somewhat bland, is still good. Its not going to win any awards, but its a local brewery for me and worth the price I got it for at Trader Joes ($1.50 per bottle for a mix six).
