3.13/5  rDev -16.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ,

A: Pours a dark golden/amber with a creamy rocky white head. Good lace.

S: Grapefruit, cedar, also a bit of a detergent play which was interesting.

T: Reminded me of a lot of Bombay by Boat. Hop profile is of wet leaves, earth, soil and pine. The more floral and citrus notes comes out as it warms. Just all right for me.

M: Good medium-bodied mouthfeel. Very long aftertaste for a pale ale, I could still taste it 30 minutes later.

D: This is an OK pale, not the hop character I like though.

4.47/5  rDev +19.8%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

on draft at 515 kitchen and cocktails in santa cruz, ca
no ABV listed

A: clear golden-orange, good clarity. 1 inch dense off-white head with good retention, when it finally starts to die it leaves thick clingy lacing

S: pears and red apples settle into a light bready aroma. pleasantly focusing on sweet, but light sugary aromas, but there is a deep reedy undertone that lingers after the initial fruitiness.

T: a crisp but not overpowering hoppy bitterness is well balanced by sweet, creamy malt. the hops stick around for a nice bitter aftertaste.

M: medium bodied with a near perfect carbonation level that smooths out the bite of the hops, making this highly drinkable. there is a touch of resiny/oily slickness on the roof of the mouth.

altogether, another great beer from moonlight. if you can get your hands on it, definitely give it a try... i know i'll certainly have another :)

On tap at Mondo in Sonoma. Poured into a pint glass. No abv is listed. Described on the beer menu as an American style pale ale.

A-Pours a very clear amber with a one finger off white head that has some decent staying power.

S-A nice mix of toasted pale malt, grapefruit, and floral hops. It reminds me in a lot of ways of a fresh hopped Cascade pale ale.

T-The taste mimics the nose. It has a really nice toasted pale malt base that gives it a nice level of sweetness. There is plenty of grapefruit and earthy hop flavor as well. The hops result in a pleasing level of bitterness.

M-Medium bodied and well carbonated.

D-A nice hoppy pale ale. It was quite sessionable and the pint went fast.

Looks like this is a new offering from Moonlight. A solid pale ale that is well hopped.
