The Beers of California

#6

Freshness Date: None

A: A half inch of white foam tops off this hazy golden ale. The head slowly subsides coating the glass as it disappears.

S: Juicy grapefruit and pine trees with freshly baked sweet rolls. A wonderful nose which really activates the palate.

T: The hops leave a trail of clean, crisp, spicy bitterness throughout. Grapefruit and pine predominate but one can also detect elements of flowers, grass, and tropical fruit. The malt is of freshly baked sweet bread and honey, although they are a subdued companion to the hops.

M: Surprisingly creamy with the classic IPA linger and moderate prickling carbonation.

O: Another great California IPA. A must have for all the hopheads out there. More difficult to find than Racer or Stone but just as good and worth every penny.

On tap at BC's Pizza and Beer

A: Pours a deep golden yellow with nice white head that fades and laces nicely

S: First thing I get is the malt sweetness, followed immediately by tropical and citrus hoppy goodness.

T: Big citrus hop kick, a little almost tropical fruit like notes in there, all well balanced by malt sweetness. There's a bit of grapefruit bitterness on the finish that hangs around.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation, very refreshing

O: I spend so much time trying new stuff that brews like this from right in my back yard often get ignored. Drinking them for the first time in a while is like sitting down with an old friend. Very tasty brew that hits the spot.

Serving type: on-tap
