Catchy name. Look is good. Dank taste. Piney, bitter, residual. Not much nose. Average pale ale. Would have again.

Dark yellow, half an inch of white head. Aroma was very mild, grain, hops, nothing you can get without searching for it.

Taste is run of the mill pale ale, 45 ibu I'd guess, toasted malt, no off flavors. Like a Cascade hopped pale ale. I can dig it, but not a repeat purchase.

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.

Undistinguished ale wanting to be an IPA.

Plain looking amber with modest head and not much carbonation in the mouth. Sprightly sharp flavors. Resiny hops in the forefront. Quite bitter but some fruit in the nose. Not very aromatic otherwise. Not interesting hops. Malt seems to sink without much trace. To me, it's too bitter to call a Pale Ale, but I don't know where the line is on the way to IPA.

Tasted in Ocean Beach (SD) at the Pizza Port. Served in a standard pint glass.
