Pours a clear organ/copper color with an inch and a half of orange tinted white head. Leaves a decent amount of sticky lacing on the glass. Has a good malt smell right off the bat. Taste goes right along with the smell: sweet malty and grain flavors Taste has a bitter feel to it that balances with the sweet malt flavors well.. Has a medium body and a medium/ balanced amount of carbonation. A good refreshing brew from the west coast.

A- Pours a cloudy, golden orange color with a finger of creamy tan head.

S- Loads of bready, semi-sweet malts and grain, some floral hops.

T- A great combination of floral, slightly citric and spicy hops and bready, semi-sweet, delicious malts. Great balance and flavor.

M- Medium bodied, medium carbonation, creamy feel, semi-dry finish.

O- A great beer, definitely session worthy.
