On-tap at Chino Valley

The pour is sort of an amber/orange color with a white head. Tons of butter on the aroma followed by orange peel, sweaty feet, pine, and grass. Some malt sweetness to it as well. The flavor also has plenty of butter. Some decent orange and orange peel along with sweet bread, mild caramel, and some candied citrus. There is at least some mild grapefruit flavor and bitterness to it.

On tap at Chino Valley Brewery in Ontario, CA.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of 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 alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with herbal and pine flavors on the finish. There is a medium 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 poor beer with a fairly abrasive and unbalanced bitterness.
