Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #39 (Apr 2010):

Sparkling golden color, a lovely head adorns the top. Ripe ruby red grapefruit, fresh-cut grass, wildflowers, nutty yeast and a little cracker in the nose. Dryish medium body that throws down its crispness on the palate right away. Clean, sharp bitterness from the hops cuts right through the dry maltiness, leaving citric and herbal flavors in its wake. Maltiness digs in deep with a uniform biscuity flavor and a somewhat faint, raw graininess. Vague fruitiness and a quick showing of nutty yeast add some complexities without getting in the way. The pulling dryness really does tell the palate that this beer is well attenuated.

Love the theme behind this beer: It's not about being from one coast or the other-- just about being a quality beer. Prime example of the American Pale Ale style, it's incredibly drinkable.

Bottle poured into a New Glarus pokal. Clear, pale golden color, with a small white head that retained well and left sheets of lacing on the glass. Nice looking brew. Clean, fresh aroma, pale malts and citrusy hops, light floral/grassy notes. The taste was a bit more thinned out than the aroma would have led me to believe, but it was still good overall: crisp and clean, light citrusy and floral hops, and some sugary pale malt sweetness. Light-medium body, easy drinkability, nicely balanced, with a very mild bitterness. A good, simple pale ale.
