A- Great amber/red color. Mellow bubbles that aren't very noticeable.
S- I tried to smell this. I even put my nose into the two finger head...i got barely anything!! Malts and the VERY mild sense of hop bitterness....im not expecting much hop bite. Some spices that i smell that i know will come out in the taste.
T- Okay, smooth.... lemme take a bigger sip..Wow..i love this beer. I taste wheat, spices and west coast freshness. I cant explain it but i love California, and this reminds of everything i love about that state.. fresh, bold and stands out. Its not a serious pallet beer but for me, this is a great wheat, malt and barley drink. Some mild fruits like pears and apples, and adds to why this is such a great beer. The bitter hops go fantastic with the bitter fruit in this beer, and manage to balance this fantastic brew. very easy for a craft brew head, id give this to any close friend!!!!
M- the mouth feel of this beer is exciting. Its not overly done with the hops and spices, its perfectly balanced with the fresh ingrediants and boldness of flavor. Every time i drink this beer its a trip to the west coast....And i live in Florida so this is a great vacation!
D- I love good amber ales, but this stands out. I love everything about this beer. I would drink a 6 pack any day because of how refreshing and easy drinking this perfect ale tastes!

A: Pours copper or brass and very clear. Medium to full head. Fantastic retention with a fair amount of lacing throughout.
S: Herbal hops are dominated by caramel malts and vanilla spiced undertones. Faintest hint of apple can be found.
T: Interesting! Incredibly it is sweet at the beginning. Caramel is the most dominant flavor. There is some toast in the middle followed by a supurbly clean finish. Hops present but very mellow.
M: Medium to light bodied. Carbonation is less than expected and takes away from my enjoyment some. I think it would improve the lighter notes in the taste more if the carbonation was higher... but that is a personal thing.
O: I always find myself trying to pair light yet flavorful beers with foods. This beer should be your "type O" : IT GOES WITH ANYTHING. Fact: You could drink this at the tailgate or with a fantastic filet... and no one would be upset. A true jack of all trades. Completely drinkable. A must try for anyone who enjoys North Coast.... but not their best outing.
