Poured a finger and half of head on a clear, dark straw colored body.
The aroma is grapefruit, through and through.
The taste is strong bitterness, a bit dry and all grapefruit again.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
It's a strongly bitter pale ale and good for it.

Handsome golden amber in the Stell glass with plenty of foam. Flowery aroma.Sudsy mouthfeel but fairly coarse.

A thoroughly drinkable Pale Ale that is not overly bitter, and has just enough malt. THe browned biscuit flavor with a touch of the herbal with some flowery hops. Slightly resiny. It's really the classic flavor. Long aftertaste of hops with bready, cereal flavor and bitter finish.

From the 22 oz bottle bought at Coit Liquor in San Francisco.

Clear, light orangish yellow - very pale. Thick white head that dissipates pretty quickly leaving moderate lacing.

Mostly hoppy aroma - citrus, a little bit of pine, grapefruity. Not a lot of malt aroma - definitely all about the hops. Smells like a good, fresh IPA mostly, which is fine, but maybe not so true to style. It does smell very nice regardless.

I'm getting most of the hops I smelled in the taste here too, although not quite as much of a punch as the smell suggests. Again, that's fine though, for the style - would expect it to be light. Also like the smell, the malts are pretty much covered up for the most part. I detect a little bit of biscuit, some caramel, lightly toasted backbone - slightly stale, but definitely pretty good. The staleness I'm tasting from the malts seems to linger the longest in the aftertaste though. The balance is good here - just seems to lean more IPA than APA.

Light, crisp, refreshing. Moderate carbonation. Very nice.

Overall not too bad. A basic, yet hoppy APA that leans a little more session IPA to me, but that's fine in my book. I'd definitely get this one again, especially given the low price.

This was a nice pale.Enjoyed on tap at the brew pub. Light orange coloured with a nice sized head. Good hop aroma, some herbs, IPA level of hops. West Coast hops delivering some grapefruit and orange flavours brewed right and boldly.Some caramel adding to drinkability.

Deep gold, it has a medium off-white head, creamy, slowly shrinking to thin foamy top, then to foamy ring and wisps, some foamy lace.

Aroma is passionfruit, hint of grapefruit, grapes, hint of caramelized barley – pretty good, bright, clean, but standard West Coast US aroma.

Taste is a thin, one-dimensional, basic and off-balance standard West Coast US pale ale – mostly a spicy grapefruit-rind bitterness with hint of white grape juice and cracker sweetness underneath. It is a bit soapy-perfumy and the bitterness lingers well past its welcome.
