I had this beer at Pizza Port in Solana Beach on 10/2/04. The beer was served with a thin head atop the yellow orange fluid. The nose on the beer was all hops but the taste was a bit more balanced. It is rich with hops, no doubt, but the malt comes through and mellows the flavor a bit, which is a good thing. The malt has a bready flavor and texture to it that lightly coats the palate.

Pours a clear light copper with a moderate, wispy light head.
A very mild smell, just a little pine hops and some sweetness from the malts.
Smooth and mellow taste, slight malt sweetness with a nice bitter and dry finish. The malts and hops balance well.
Very smooth with a tight carbonation.
Easy to drink, very mellow and mild, definitely not an extreme beer but very drinkable.
