On tap at the 2014 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a hazy dark orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and toast 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 has a nice balance of malt and hop characteristics all around.

Great appearance, orange and clear with a great, lasting head and tons of sticky lace.

Aroma and taste are piney, citrus pith and rinds, lemons in particular, a little dank and some grass, with a good balancing malt backbone that's a little more pronounced after the initial impression.

Body is medium, fairly dry, pretty easy drinking with a bitter hop finish.

Overall I'm finding it quite enjoyable, no complaints here.
