7.1%, according to the website...
dark(er) color than expected for the smell i was getting.... thin foam....
smell is hop-py, for certain, with the amber color.
taste is light hops, some malt in the mix, some bitterness but easy to drink.
overall, decent, semi-sessionable.... nothing overly impressive....

Poured on-tap in a pint glass at the pint house in Fullerton, CA.

A- Half a finger white head. Medium retention. Deep orange-brown color and some watery lacing.

S- Darker malts. Medium bodied hops.

T- Bitter hops and dark malts. Finishes surprisingly watery and bitter.

M- Unfortunately watery and kind of unappealing.

O- Suffers from watery feel and flavor. Wouldn't do again.

Draft at the brewery.

Pours a hazy, golden apricot color with a half finger white head that immediately settles into a thin ring. Minimal spots of lace.

Earthy hop aroma with lots of malt sweetness. Hints of caramel, toffee, hazelnut and subtle fruit countered by floral, piney hops.

Medium bodied with a blast of dry, bitter hops that linger over the sweeter malt notes into a dry finish.  Much hoppier than the nose suggests with lots of dank pine needle flavor that's countered by caramel, toffee, nut and light fruit. Finishes dry. A bit thin but easy to drink and flavorful.

On tap at Tony's Darts Away in Burbank, CA.

Pours a clear amber color with a 1 inch beige head that settles to a film on the top of the beer. A very nice foamy lattice of lace forms on the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and some herbal and citrus zest hops. Taste is of sweet malt and herbal and citrus zest hops. The aftertaste has some slight tropical fruit. A mild bitterness lingers on the palate after each sip. This beer has a crisp level of carbonation and a somewhat dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is easy drinking.
