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: clear; medium brown; 1 finger light brown head that receded slowly to a thin cap; nice lacing;

S: very restrained nose; what is there is malt sweetness;

T: very smooth and well balance; malt up front; at mid-palate, a little grapefruit rind flavor and bitterness kicks in; moderate bitterness on the finish; ABV is well hidden;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; slightly dry finish;

O: really nice beer;
