This pours a somewhat dark golden color with a pretty high amount of carbonation and a medium foamy white head. The smell is faintly fruity with notes of orange, pineapple, and a slight bready scent. The taste is actually not nearly as fruity as the scent led me to believe. There are very slight flavors of orange and lemon, but for the most part a bready malt flavor takes over. It has surprisingly low hop character for a California American pale ale, but there are very slight pine notes also. It has a nice body and a very crisp, but not dry finish. This is a definitely a solid pale ale. Nothing too crazy going on here, but this would make a great summer session beer. I had never tried this brewery before, but now I’m interested to see what they would do with a more interesting style of beer.

Pours a nice orange gold with a lacey white head. Aroma and flavors aren't terribly complex...some grapefruit pith, earthy hops, and generic piney flavors with a hint of caramelly malt. Mouthfeel is medium bodied. A passable pale ale.

Decent pale ale. Citrusy notes make it refreshing but it is not too flavorful. It is a pretty good summer beer. I think it it had more hops character to it it would be better
