Pours a light orange color with a white head and a bit of lacing. The smell is grainy, earthy, and very lightly hoppy. The taste has standard malts for a typical amber ale, a bit grainy, and solidly bitter. Hop flavor is light and leafty and not strong like one would expect in a Chronic ale, not sure if its age or recipe, the date is within a the past few months so its not super old it was purchased at a local store. Its just average beer with a solid body and bitterness. Mild citrus taste, but pretty sugary and malty though bitter. As a session beer, it would be good. For a hoppy amber, its middle of the road.

On tap at boneyard.

Too much banana for me, but a solid drinkable ale.

Whoa, what's this. Completely unexpected. A sweet caramel, bready and honey malt aroma, an insipid, vaguely citrusy hop aroma, just utterly bland. The palate is no better. Light but like sugar water, whole wheat bread dough, honey, caramel, chalky hop flavor, minimal bitterness, minimal flavor, this is a chore. Drain pour.

Really great beer. Loved the taste and aroma! Awesome beer for the beach or the course (where I found it). Excited to try the others from this great pizza joint!
