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.

This unfiltered beer comes in a golden hazy color.

The aroma has tons of citrus, some grassiness, and some breadiness.

The flavor follows with tons of orange hops, a bready mouthfeel, and pine. There's a good amount of drying on the end.

The finish definitely has that breadiness and grain flavor that makes it a lager instead of an ale.

However, the unfiltered lager aspect with this along with the tons of citrus hops really makes this hoppy lager a drinkable and really enjoyable beer.

Served on-tap at Valhalla in New York, NY

A: Pours a crystal clear pale amber in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some faint hints of orangish amber in color. The beer has a finger tall foamy light beige head that quickly reduces to medium sized patch of thin film, a very thin film covering the majority of the remainder of the surface of the beer, and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Upfront there is a light aroma of grainy malts that has a light amount of sweetness present. Light to moderate aromas of citrus/orange/grapefruit hops towards the finish.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of cereal grain malts with a light amount of sweetness that is followed by light to moderate flavors fo citrus/orange/grapefruit hops that imparts a light amount of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.

M: Lighter than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Clean with a very light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Surprised that this is a California Common/Steam Beer as it could easily be mistaken for an APA or an IPA. There is a pleasant amount of hoppiness that makes this one quite enjoyable and it is very easy to drink.

Had on tap at blind tiger- pours a clear golden color, with an inch and a half if bubbly head, decent retention, minimal lacing.

Smell is mild- slight aroma of citrus hops and light grains.

Taste is excellent- citrus hops, light grain profile, very refreshing.

Mouthfeel is great- light to medium body with moderate carbonation. This one is definitely a keeper and an excellent example of the style.
