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.
