Pours a slightly hazed golden with a white head. Nose has a nice citrusy quality. A touch of pine and some floral notes. Mild bread and cracker malt sweetness. Taste is a bit too bitter and astringent. Grain husk, grapefruit peel, some orange, and a light pine note. Some mild bread and cracker malt flavor and sweetness. Light bodied with medium carbonation.

On tap at The Lab Brewing Company in Agoura Hills, CA.

Pours a slightly hazy honey orange with a white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small foamy chunks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and some citrusy hops. Taste is the same with a mild level of bitterness after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good pale ale that is pretty easy drinking.
