On tap at The Beer Company in San Diego, CA.

Billed as Pariah Pale Ale at 6% ABV.

Pours a hazy light orange with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Thin rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with a citrus zest flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that tastes better than it smells in my opinion.

On tap at The Beer Company. This is Pariah Pale Ale.

A: Dark gold with a fizzy white head. Nice color. Scattered lacing.

S: Bright and vibrant hop presence with orange, tangerine, grapefruit, and a touch of pine. Malt is faint, imparting a little biscuit.

T: Pronounced hop profile with notes of orange and grapefruit flesh, as well as pine. Lower moderate smooth bitterness. Malt is light and crackery with a dash of bread.

M: Lower medium body with upper moderate carbonation. 

Overall: A well done hoppy pale ale. Highly drinkable. Recommended.

M - This beer has a medium body with medium carbonation to it
