Hazy yellowish copper color with not much of a head. The aroma is pleasantly hoppy but quite mild. I was expecting more. Taste is piney, slightly citrusy and has some definite hop bitterness.
I like that the malt backbone of this beer is subtle as this is perfect for showcasing a blend of hops and delivering a broad spectrum of delicious hoppy characteristics. That being said there is not enough depth to the hoppy characteristics of this particular beer to merit this and as a result the beer is somewhat bland. It's lacking particularly in flavor but also in aroma. Overall this is no masterpiece of a beer but it is an entirely drinkable brew, even quite enjoyable if it's a nice, fresh bottle. I will buy it again to support an LA brewery.
