Had this on tap at the brewpub. Pours a nice amber color with a thin white head. Good lacing down the side as this baby goes down.

The bartender told me it was a hoppy APA, and he was right. The floral bouquet is very pleasing and dominates the aroma.

Floral hops are right up front in the taste as well, although there is enough caramel and breadiness in the background to keep it balanced and very drinkable.

Serving type: on-tap

3.58/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at the 2013 Firestone Walker Invitational held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and caramel aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel and citrus flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some solid aromas and flavors.

Serving type: on-tap
