On draft. A- cloudy amber; S- earthy with a hint caramel; T- earthy with some pine, and toward the bitter side but just bitter enough; F- mouthfeel is just toward the heavy side of neutral. Reminiscent of a very good, traditional hoppy flavor. Very tasty and enjoyable brew.

Served from bottle into a COAST Willi (proper!). Poured a golden yellow-orange with a one finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, earth, earth hop, citrus, citrus hop, grass, and subtle onion. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, earth hop, grass, subtle onion hop, citrus, and spicy hop. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. The nose on this one really had me intrigued from the time I opened the bottle. The flavor however, while good, was sadly not as great as the aroma. The earthy and grassy note was more of the dominant star of the flavor. Definitely worth your time getting this on your palate at least once if you are a pale ale fan.

A - Pours a golden yellow with a finger of near white head, strong retention and nearly perfect lacing.

S - Spicy garlicy hops. Smells great, almost a jade-like aroma.

T - Pretty consistant from first taste through finish. Slightly spiced, piney/garlic hops.

M - Very very refreshing, easy drinking, decently carbonated, lightish bodied.

O - A fantastic session hoppy west coast pale ale
