Glass: Stone pint glass
From: Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, Calif., on Jan. 5, 2013
Poured a golden hazy straw color with a finger of gray head that dissipated rather quickly. Minimal lacing, below average retention.
Smelled a surprising sharp whiff of hops up front. Seemed to be icy Cascade hops. Also some lemon grassy notes - a bit like lemon Jolly Ranchers - honey, caramel and lime. A bit like Sprit or Sierra Mist. Pretty good smell for a summer brew.
Taste wasn’t quite as good as the smell. Got those Cascade hops still and grassy hops with a bitter finish. In between was sweet alcohol, lime and pine. Later got some tangerine and slight grapefruit.
Light body. Thin texture. Lively (above average) carbonation. Bitter finish. Clean, crisp and refreshing, though.
A pretty good summer beer overall, which is saying something, because most taste the same. I’d have it again.

Arrives in a liter mug, clear, bright, dark yellow with a creamy white head. Awesome lace, fabulous retention.
Smell is hops, malt, some grapefruit. Hops is strongest but not overpowering.
Taste is in line with the smell. Hops first followed by malt and a touch of wood. The same grapefruit note from the hops is here as well as a floral presence. Balance is good.
Medium plus body with a solid, tangy effervescence. Smoother than expected, and pleasantly so.
Serving type: on-tap
