Looks super hazy, nice off white head that disappears quickly. Smells like one of my favorite hops being simcoe, super citrusy, piney, malty goodness. Tastes nothing like the smell, a very malt forward beer with subtle notes of the nose, earthy, mineral iron towards the end. This is not what I was expecting from something brewed in California. This is a malt bomb at times. Medium to heavy side. Just not at all what I was expecting from these folks. I liked it, just not a flavor you'd expect from simcoe and amarillo.

This may have been an old bottle, hard to tell with no bottle dating.
Will re-review when I have this again; this just wasn't what it should have been when I had it.
