On tap for the 2014 Los Angeles Vegan Beer Festival held in West Hollywood, CA.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and slight herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild 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 good beer that is tasty but simple in my opinion.

This poured a clear amber color with good foam.

There’s an incredibly fresh and vibrant aroma that’s a citrus bowl of delights: tangerine, orange, a squeeze of lemon and a touch of pine. The flavor pops with tangerine and orange, pine and pith. The flavor lingers, tapering off into deliciousness.

Possibly one of the smoothest and tastiest pale ales I have ever had.

Would absolutely purchase and drink again.

Tasting this beer at Three Sheets in Dublin Ca and it just shocked the hell out of me with its intense incredible nose and a finish that just goes on and on. It's a Pale at only 5.2% but it behaves like a big boy IPA find this beer it's fantastic!
Cheers!
