Second Best Pale Ale ever made. Ridiculously hoppy for a pale ale, and I LOVE that. Close to Lagunitas IPA, without any hint of bitterness. So glad Fresno started carrying this gem. More expensive than the IPA here, but worth every penny!!! Very refreshing.

12oz brown bottle poured into a pint glass. The beer is a mostly clear golden color with a white head that left streaks on the glass. The beer is full of citrus and tropical fruit aroma and flavors with citrus rind bitterness on the after taste. Medium bodied, smooth and easy enough to drink a few. Very good overall.

Real nice looking, big white head that lasted and left sticky lace.

Aroma was nice and hoppy, just like the taste. This could easily be an IPA, I've had IPAs that were less hoppy. Good citrus qualities, a touch of spiciness, some fruity aspects all blend well to make an enjoyable ale.

Body is light to medium, yet just a touch slick at the finish, with a bit of a lingering citrus bitter finish.

Overall it's a damn fine quality beer. Not that I would expect anything less from Lagunitas.
