On tap at Stone.

A: Burnished gold with good transparency and an inch of white sea foam. Retention is good and sheets of lacing cling to the glass.

S: Tangerine and orange flesh blend with light perfumy floral notes and a little papaya. Malt stays out of the way, feebly offering meager cracker notes. Smells nice.

T: Orange flesh and pith with a little tangerine. Bitterness is at a moderate level and the beer is very dry, with malt imparting cracker but no real sweetness. The finish is dry and bitter with citrus rind and a little astringency.

M: Upper light body with upper medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is dry, crisp, and sticky.

Overall: A good hoppy pale ale.

On-tap at Beachwood II,

A: Pours a clear dark gold with a medium white head, great lace.

S: Not huge, but has nice notes of pineapple and citrus.

T: Light bready malt flavour as the backbone. The hop flavour is good, tropical with some tangerine, melon and lemon. Nice mix of flavours.

M: Medium-bodied, smooth, medium aftertaste. Good hoppy character.

O: Definitely a quality pale ale. Reminds me a bit of SNPA if it got tropical. The Simcoe is showing its stuff. Worth a try.

Golden color in the pint shaker. Nice pile of foam and a sudsy mouthfeel. Light body and on the sharp side. Quite fragrant with hops. I thought of Mosaic, but brewer says that Nelson Sauvin is the featured hop in this.

Moderate bitterness even though the IBUs are rated at 75. Overall it makes for a tasty quaff with a fruity and hugely aromatic taste. One of the better Pale Ales I've had, and a must-try for the student of hop flavors. Attractive appearance and pleasant in every way. On tap at Waypoint Public in San Diego.
