Cloudy orange-amber with a persistent creamy film.

Smell is pungent rug, pine, cat pee, grapefruit, and more pine--classic West Coast here.

Taste is not as pungent or bitter, with sugared grapefruit, and orange. A little dankness pops here and there.

Slick feel.

Shorty review. 12 oz bottle, undated. It's not very new, for sure. Large head with good retention and lacing. Beer is a nice amber. Nose is mostly caramel and other nutty malts. Not much of the Simcoe hops left in nose, but some in taste, though malts prevail. Mellow, not bitter. Light to medium mouthfeel, light carbonation, not as drying as could be. OK.
