look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is very hazy orange amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that gradually died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface, a collar around some edge and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of grassy hops are present in the nose along with notes of grainy malts.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell, except that the malty flavors seem to be a little more prominent and the hops only contribute a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and slightly chewy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to be a good representation of the style and had a nice balance between the malts and hops.

On tap at the brewery.

Pours a hazy dark orange. 1.5 inch head, not much lacing.

Slightly weak aromas- spicy and grassy tones are what I get.

The taste follows, slightly stronger. Lightly bitter, with grassy hop flavors coming to the forefront. A bit floral, too.

Light bodied, well carbonated, very drinkable.

A good stab at the California Common style. Could have a bit more bright flavors.

Had this on tap at Birdsall House in Peekskill. It is my first Steam Beer so maybe this is how the style is supposed to taste. This beer was completely unbalanced with a weak malt presence and an over the top yet extremely bitter hop profile. If you like to drink a glass of bitter hops, then this beer is for you. I proceeded to drink a few west coast IPA's after this one that completely blew me away.

From 07/28/13 notes. Had on tap at Ginger Man in NYC.

a - Pours a hazy, medium orange color with one inch of white head and low carbonation evident.

s - Smells of light citrus, bread, wheat, grains, floral hops, fruits, and earthy notes. Light oranges and citrus and fruit in the nose, pretty nice, though not super hoppy.

t - Tastes of bready malts, light oranges, light floral hops, earthy notes, grains, wheat, and toasted malts. Nice, but less fruit and citrus than the nose; a slight step down for me.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Very msooth and easy to drink. Nice mouthfeel.

o - Overall a pretty good beer, though no where near their other hoppy offerings. Some nice floral and citrus in the nose, though the taste has less. Easy to drink, a nice light beer, but would highly recommend their other IPA's if you're looking for something hoppy.
