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

Pours a clear orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and floral aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and earth 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 pretty good beer that is tasty but simple in my opinion.

Wow... there once was a time where brewery-only releases that were less than 3 months old wouldn't have 60-odd reviews. But I guess that's just the magic of the "Rating" feature--it allows anyone to make up anything.

Anyhow, this was different. I liked it, but it lacked the oomph of their regular hoppy offerings, and I.. it's hard to put into words, but I just couldn't wrap my head (or tongue) around what it is the new, bizarre hop profile was trying to achieve. It was like a blend between amarillo and sorachi ace, with nodes of sharp spice clashing against more American bursts of citrus. Neat, but they need to work on it some more. Here's my notes:

Golden orange-ish, slight haze and a decent head. Smells like a straight up midwest IPA: rounded biscuit malt, alpha hops. Tastes sweet, sharp, and spicy. Strange hop profile. Not quite like anything i've had. Round, thick back end.
