Had this at Vault One Sixty Four in San Mateo...
Pours a medium-light brown color with an intense head that sits through the entire pint.
The nose is of freshly cut grass, water crackers, and a great hop finish.
Taste is great on this one, starting with grassy front moving onto a slightly bitter middle then a strong hop finish. The hop depth on this is pretty amazing, it develops well on the tongue and even lends to a beer that's very drinkable despite it's intense bitterness for such a "mainstream" brew. As it warms up i sense crisp apples and burnt caramel poking through the hoppiness.
Mouthfeel is spot on, making this an easy to drink hoppy beer for when you're feeling like an IPA but want it to pair better with lighter foods. Overall quite impressive, definitely would buy this in larger quantities.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Pale golden orange. Nice white head. Chunky collar. Pretty clear.
Smell - Popcorn malt. Grassy and grapefruit hops.
Taste - A little resiny. Grainy malt. Cracker malt, a little bit of that popcorn flavor. Minimal bitterness.
Mouthfeel - Light. Medium carbonation. Drinkable.
Overall - Drinkable and pretty flavorful. Nothing unique, though.

4/5 rDev +3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Appearance: pours an orange color with a 2" fluffy head that slowly fell. Thick lace painted the glass during the session.
Smell: oranges and a soft bitterness were the dominant aromas.
Taste: Caramel, orange, a bit of grass / earthiness, and a nice floral bitterness. Nicely balanced flavor profile.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, less crisp and mildly dry late.
Overall: this beer was very easy to enjoy and tasted great as it seemed to be a super fresh keg. This can be a sessionable beer and can be enjoed with a variety of foods.
Serving type: on-tap
