On tap at Prescott Brewing.

Crystal clear light amber with a durable white head. The glass is left nicely coated after each sip.

Aroma: Sweet and floral with no strong hop presence.

Flavor: nicely balanced mix of sweet and bitter, leaning towards the sweet side for an Amer. PA. Hops come out in the finish and aftertaste

Feel: Medium body and carbonation Very dry finish

O: dry, pleasant, less bitter, easy-drinking, version of this style.

A friend brought a bottle of this home from Arizona.

This is from some notes...

Pours a cloudy gold color, with a decent white head.

Aromas are of mostly hops. Some hard candies, and general citrus notes.

This is a pretty hoppy tasting pale. I thought it was an IPA on the first sip. It's crisp, and has a light creamy malt flavor. But this is dominated by the hops. Finish is bitter, with citrus flavors, mostly lemon noticed, and some subtle apricot notes as well.

Mouthfeel is good. Feels pretty thick and lively in the mouth.

Drinkability is not bad. It's a tasty Pale Ale. But a bit too strong to be sessionable. Worth a try though.

Cloudy pale with a one-finger head that didn't posess a great deal of staying power. Smell is crisp, and alive with citrus hops. Flavor is very satisfying, great malt/hop balance. Mouthfeel is a little thin, and just a little cloying, but this remains a superbly drinkable beer.

Very little aroma to speak of. Head dissapated quickly. Very little malt background or hop flavor. The only thing that really stuck out as sub-par was the carbonation was a little too large and rough, like a coca cola instead of a beer. But even with all of that it is still not a bad beer. It is nice and thirst quenching and has no off flavors for such a light beer.Plus at two dollars for a pint (happy hour) it is a bargain.
