Its about time I reviewed this brew. I cant even count how many times I have had this beer. It has been my go-to beer all through college and even today. It consistantly tastes great...never disapointed that I bought it. I dont think I need to go into all the characteristics here...we have all had it. If you haven't ever had this before, do yourself a favor and go get one. For me, it was probably the beer that got me into the world of "hoppy" style beers and craft brewing. Would love to visit Chico one day.

A: The beer pours a very nice redish gold with a nice thick head.

S: I am getting a good amount of hops, some caramel and a little bit of sweetness.

T: This beer has so much flavor. I am picking up a lot of sweet malt and hops. Its just a perfect amount of both.

M: The beer has a good amount of carbonation, but its very enjoyable.

O: This is my go to session beer and is good with anything. I love pairing it with food, hanging with friends or just when I am bored.
