Light amber/orange. Half-inch head quickly dissipates to film with some bubbles.
Mild smell of citrus and hops. Flavor is similar, but with less citrus and more hops. Slight bitter bite on the finish. mouth feel is okay.
Slightly above average. Not something I would drink a bunch of, but not interesting enough to be a sipper, either. I'd like to try it again with a meal rather than on it's own, as I can see it working well for that.

Off the tap at the brew pub. Thin head with medium straw colored body.
The aroma is great: grapefruit and lemon.
The taste is smooth with a good dose of malt and moderate bitterness.
The texture is crisper with moderate carbonation and medium body.
It's a nice, easy drinking ale and flavorful.

On-tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad
The beer is almost amber in color with a white head. Mild grass aroma followed by citrus peel and floral hops. A strong toffee and toasted bread smell to it as well. Just decent on the nose, sort of bland. The flavor is somewhat sweet, but still a bit bland. Light hop flavors of citrus peel, grass and pine. A light bitterness on the finish.

Had on tap at Rubicon brewing. This one pours an orangish body with a medium head. Hops are pretty potent and it also has a sort of herbal quality to it. Can't quite put my finger on it, but it's definitely spiced to a point. I didn't particularly like the balance of it, but my girlfriend loved it.

On tap at Tony's Darts Away in Burbank, CA.
Pours a clear honey gold with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, slight herbal hop aromas, and alcohol. Taste is much the same with some toasted malt flavors and a very mild hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average beer that has no real pale ale characteristics.

A darker yellow pale ale, about 1/2" head on it, poured at beer revolution. Aroma was just a soft meld of hops and mild malt tones. Pedestrian.
Sessionable pale ale, really seems to be something that is made to be plenty easy to drink. Not a hop heads dream. Adequate bitterness, not much in the way of a specific hop flavor though.
Rubicon can make some assertive stuff, this isn't one of them, this is the beer I order for people who don't like beer. Or for myself if its like, 102 degrees outside.

On-tap at the Yardhouse. Huh....how did that happen? On to the beer:
This has an orangish copper color with good fommration of the head, leaving a quality dose of lacing around the glass. The nose is fruity, and also offers some crisp hops. To taste, pale malts hit first, then comes a rush of sweet citurs and orange. Good biting action of hops. It's crisp, nearly medium bodied, and is an easy one to drink.
I can dig this. Keep 'em coming Rubicon.
