Pours a medium brown with medium sticky head,aroma is somewhat hoppy and maybe a little orange-like.Taste is pretty hoppy and zesty to begin with,with some nutty tones as well as caramel tones on the palate.Wow this is a complex brew,have heard alot of stuff about this one,now I know why.

Poured a nice brown color with a quarter inch creamy head. Malty flavor with a good hop hit, but not overly bitter. Very balanced and easy drinking. Flavors really show through as the beer warms slightly. Aroma is roasty and mildly hoppy. This is a beer that sets the standard for quality and drinkability.

Tasted really good, no harsh aftertaste, poured nice with a finger and half head, nice aroma. Had one bottle and wish i had a couple more....highly recommend this California beer and will be enjoying another very soon. Very filling beer as well and i think it would go great with a backyard bbq

A; Pours out a murky reddish copper. Two fingers of khaki head that wouldn't leave me alone.

S: Very bready. Subtle hint of fruit like strawberry and cherry.

T: Hoppy licorice. Strawberry and cherry from the nose mixed with an earthy, grassy hop. Delicious.

M: Medium sticky body with medium carb. Slightly tannic bite.

O: Very solid. The hoppiness is what sets this one apart. A great "go to" because of the availability in my area.
