Good old 8th street wine & liquor store brought some of this in. Heard lots about it, let's see if the hype holds.
Not sure where all the hazy reviews came from. My bottle poured a slight copper color with a head that showed some good retnetion, but no lacing.
Rich, bready malt with a hint of caramel to it. Spicy hops linger in the background.
Interesting taste. Flood of bitter hop and smooth caramel malt attack the tastebuds in perfect unison. Finish, even with the hop blast, is only slightly dry.
Very smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel. Maybe a tad bit watery..but overall a good experience.
Nice west coast offering as they didn't go overboard with the hops and the smoothness certainly makes it a breeze to drink. Would be a good companion to some SF seafood
