what a fascinating extra from a recent trade. There's lots of reviews (131) already posted and given I hear most often about this brewery for their bigger beers its neat to be able to try this beer.

this was a nice golded colored brew with a pleasent hop character. I had this on a very hot day with a barbeque diner. I would recommend this beer for a nice warm weather session beer. low abv and a nice clean hop flavor. yeah, this worked.

12oz. bottle

Pours a clear, golden color with a small white head that maintains. Mild lacing on the glass.

Aroma is a nice blend of piney and floral hops with a hint of caramel malt lurking beneath.

Piney and floral hops upfront with a medium bitterness. A nice mild caramel malt flavor appears midway and rides along with the hops through the finish.

Medium-light body, medium carbonation.

Solid APA across the board, and definitely has the California vibe to it. Will make a return in my fridge as often as I can find it.
