Enjoyed this a few times in bottles, but this review is on a half pint I had in Chico at their brewery.
Let me start by saying I like this more than their Pale, which is a pretty strong statement. Not that their pale is supurb, buts its consistently a perfect fallback beer. I'd like to see this have the same distribution as pale.
It's a ramped up pale ale, but not quite an IPA in my opinion. I think i'd consider it a .5IPA.
Pours a rich copper color with a reallly nice head sitting aloft.
Bright crisp hop aroma and flavor. Citrus, slight pine, and a good balance of sweetness to bitterness. It's clearly too high to be a session beer, but it's generally a good brew.

Good sh*t. This is beer. It is a good beer. It is cheap, it is drinkable and this beer will get you drunk. My girlfriend had wine, I had this beer. I had others but this is the beer I liked most. I will order this beer again. It was a bit strong for my 8 year old, so we mixed it with soda water.
