After so many reviews, no beer is perfect
I have to say upon moving to california,
This is really something that lived up to expetations.
Pours a light golden color.
hoppy, bread, super balanced on the aromatics,
cant say what hasn't been said
Taste is superb. light balanced, hops+malt+body+carbonation=perfection

On tap at the Hulmeville Inn for the Russian River & Taco Bonanza Event

Poured into a typical pint glass. Golden/ yellow in color, very clean, no sediment. A fingers width of off white head that laces perfectly all the way through. Smells great.. Grape fruit forward, citrus and piney hops. Taste is very good.. Slightly bittering, hop forward.. A bit grainy, grapefruit, and citrus. Slightly bittering aftertaste, hop character lingering. I love this beer and run to any event that pours it.
