A: A dark amber with a tan head that dissolves quickly into a mild lacing.

S: Smells of rich hops with mild notes of citrus and pine in the background.

T: A big blast of hops and grapefruit on the top of the brew with some caramel notes on the backend.

M: Very mild feeling with excellent carbonation

Overall: An excellent example of the style from yet another excellent SoCal Brewery.

Pours a dark amber, clear. Head builds into a finger and a half of tight, light tan foam. Head falls quickly leaving decent lacing.
Aromas hit me first with the piney, grapefruit hoppiness. Sweet lingers out back.
Taste again with a huge hop hit with the pine and grapefruit shouldering in the door, following the initial blast a warm, bitter caramel tones bring up the rear.
Its a lovely feeling ale, with low carbonation and a medium dry end.
