Very Good

Notes: Loads of Citra, El Dorado and Cascade hops are carefully layered over a lightly toasty malt backbone to create a highly aromatic and crushable West Coast pale ale.

16oz can served in a big snifter. Gift from a whisky friend. No date on the can. I think he brought it back from a visit to Reno.

Pours a clear amber color with a small head and little carbonation. Smell is old hops and biscuit.

Taste is less old hops, but still there -- some light tea flavor, some light biscuit flavor. A little watery.

Mouthfeel is watery and thin. Overall, it's not bad, but it's not good either. I suspect it's old, but with no date I can only guess. If they dated and I knew it was old, I wouldn't submit the review. Since they don't date, as far as I can tell, it's as good as I could rely on it being.

On-tap at Jake's on the Lake, Tahoe City, CA

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left a short head covering the surface and lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose along with hints of pine.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of citrus and piney hops. There is a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied and rather crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This pale ale is very easy to drink. It's nice and crisp and not too heavy on the palate.

Serving type: on-tap

Decent pale ale, very light in color. Aroma and flavor were hoppy but not quite the flavors described on the board. Decent stuff but not worth what they are asking for a four pack.

Nice character, not boring. One of the best pale ales I've had in a while.

Pours amber to copper with a big off white head. Smells piney and slightly fruity, and somewhat follows in the taste, however! I swear I am sensing saison yeast in this, as in the IPA I purchased, though it does not say it on the can, and I don't feel it works well in this case. To be honest, it is a bit off putting. Drinkable, but not something I will seek out again. Sorry. Cheers!

Got this on my trip to South Lake Tahoe. Went to the brewery in Incline Village but was too early and they were closed. Beer is a hearty pale ale. Very malt forward with plenty of hop aroma. Very drinkable.

The Pale Ale is quite nice. It poured a clear golden with white head that is leaving a lace. The scent is a faint juicy fruit gum. The taste is nicely balanced. There are hints of pine and orange like fruit. Finish is slightly dry. The Mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid beer.
