A darker yellow pale ale, about 1/2" head on it, poured at beer revolution. Aroma was just a soft meld of hops and mild malt tones. Pedestrian.

Sessionable pale ale, really seems to be something that is made to be plenty easy to drink. Not a hop heads dream. Adequate bitterness, not much in the way of a specific hop flavor though.

Rubicon can make some assertive stuff, this isn't one of them, this is the beer I order for people who don't like beer. Or for myself if its like, 102 degrees outside.

A - Rusty-orange with a beige head. Long lasting lacing.

S - Very shy nose with hints of tropical fruits and orange. Slight toast aroma as well. The nose was very nice just wish it was more forward.

T- Taste was quite similar to the nose, tropical fruit and toast.

M - Medium/Light body with a very clean finish

O - I was expecting more from this beer and in many ways somewhat disappointed. While it was very drinkable, I don't think I'll be buying any more.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance - Pours a semi-hazy golden orange with an off-white, 2 finger head. Fair retention, leading to a broken layer of surface suds. Leaves a good amount of lacing around the glass with nice stick. 3.75

Smell - Nice bouquet of orange and light tropical character backed by a healthy amount of caramel and butter toffee notes. I could stand to smell this all day. 4

Taste - Not as prominent in flavor as the nose suggests, but what's there is cohesive. Lightly toasted bread and hints of butter toffee backed by a moderate citrus undertone. Finishes with traces of orange pith bitterness and caramel. 3.75

Mouthfeel - Light in body with fair carbonation. Smooth with slight silkiness, but nothing special. 3.5

Overall - Much better my second and third go-around with this beer. Is it $10 a sixer worthy? Probably not. Might buy the occasional $4 bomber though. 3.75

Off the tap at the brew pub. Thin head with medium straw colored body.
The aroma is great: grapefruit and lemon.
The taste is smooth with a good dose of malt and moderate bitterness.
The texture is crisper with moderate carbonation and medium body.
It's a nice, easy drinking ale and flavorful.
