I don't think I've had a beer be so inconsistent. There's times I've loved this and times its been garbage.

Pours the standard copper appearance, 1/2" white head. Aroma can pop with dry hops, or reek of wet cardboard like paper and wood notes.

Sometimes its an good pale ale, other times its below average. Weird thing is the tap lines at the brewery have been so contaminated, its been worse to drink it at the source. Bottle dating nonexistant. You really take your chance on these. Ideally, you'll get a nice toasted pale and crystal malt beer paired with some C hops for a light bodied refreshing experience with solid bitterness and hop flavors pushing the pine.

Pours a clear golden-orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with earth and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a fairly earth and herbal hop forward presence all around.

12 fl oz bottle: badged as 'Yosemite Pale Ale'. Poured twice at home into a stemmed 'Yuengling' glass on 26 Aug 2013. A present from my daughter and son-in-law after a holiday in said park.

Looked fine, a good deep golden body with a full off-white head on both pours.

Hops to the fore in the nose and taste, with a malty undertone. I really liked this beer, good solid balance and plenty of flavour from start to finish.

Liked the alcohol level, suited the body depth and flavour.

I liked this one fairly well, speaking as an IPA drinker. Delicate orange-pine hops precede a bready malt backbone, finishing with mild hop bitterness. Plenty carbonated for summer drinkability. Bottle was labeled as "Yosemite Pale Ale", but reading the fine print revealed it was actually Paranoid Pale. Gift beer, possibly purchased in Yosemite Valley...
