look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Pours a very bright and somewhat clear gold color with a pretty nice white head.

Aromas is bit odd to me. I kind of get a cat pee like smell. Also very floral, with some tropical fruitiness, and stinky resin. Weird, some whiffs I like this, others not so much.

Taste is light up front, light cracker and dry creamy almost sherbet like sweetness. Finish is fruity, with some resin, and very floral fresh hop notes.

Mouthfeel is very clean, smooth, and soft. Very nice for the style this beer is shooting for.

Overall, this beer was a head scratcher for me. I wasn't overly thrilled with the nose, that odd slight cat pee note through me off. But after I got over that, I actually enjoyed sipping this one. Strange beer, maybe I'm just not a fan of mosaic hops?

On tap at Engine House 9 on 8.25.14

Smells like a lighter rpm, taste is there, just a bit watered down compared to the big Boneyard boys. At 4% how can you complain or compare.

Growler from Mainbrew.

Pouring a clear light yellow with a dense, white head with excellent retention and lacing. The nose is great! Bright citrus, mostly lemony and grapefruit-like, with a touch of floral character. Being a 4% APA, there is no malt character to speak of. The palate opens with a blend of lemon flavor, grapefruit bitterness, a little floral character and some additional citrus. Malt character is non-existent with no sweetness resulting in a bone-dry palate. The finish is dry, just barely avoiding being watery like many hoppy session beers end up being, and has flavors of lemon and grapefruit. Minimal resin character as well. Solid stuff.

Served in a pint glass.

Light golden look, nice head.

Smells like RPM, tropical fruit (pineapple) and grapefruit.

Malty flavor with a nice dry bitterness to balance. Finishes with a toastiness.

Medium-light body.

Great session beer! It's like RPM, but smaller...

On tap at the 2014 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a clear light gold with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
