On tap at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a clear light orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and herbal hops. Taste is much the same with a earthy hop flavors 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 with some solid aromas and flavors.

Very nice west coast style pale ale. Light Yellow with a long lasting white head that gives of a floral and pine aroma. Nice smooth medium body delivers a sweet and bitter fruity hop flavor.

I really enjoyed this beer and would definitly order it again. i don't think it is available in cans.

Very good pale ale, would be an IPA in New Hampshire.

Looked protocol for pale ale, had some nice clear suds on top that remained throughout. Mouthfeel of the beer was about right. Unfortunately this beer smelled like urine, something I literally cannot get out of my head. Taste wise, it had the bitter characteristics and some citrusy like flavors, but the smell of the beer negatively contributed to a beer that didn't taste like a proper pale ale that I've come to enjoy over the years from other breweries. I've come to have some inconsistent beers at the Golden Road, perhaps this is another.
