I had my first Mad River Steelhead Extra Pale Ale at the Mercury Lounge, a beer bar in Goleta, California.

Looks kind of unassuming in the glass. Just pale gold with a small white head. Smells incredibly hoppy with a citrusy scent somewhere in the vacinity of lemon. But the taste is very hopless. I still sense the citrus, but the utter lack of bitterness is very surprising. Light in the body. The smoothness of each sip makes this one dangerously drinkable.
