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!

$ 1.89/12 oz bottle at Wegmens in Jamestown, NY
Undated bottle at 40 degrees into imperial pint
Very faint malty aroma
Head large (6 cm), off white, creamy, rapidly diminishing to an irregular layer which lasts the duration of the beer.
Lacing spotty – rings of irregular islands of various size bubbles
Body coppery, hazy
Flavor of light malt and a hint of lemon
Palate medium, creamy, soft carbonation
This is a good example of an amber/red ale which meets the style characteristics quite well. The malt is not overly sweet or cloying but just right. I’m not a fan of this style, but this is one I could drink all day.
