Chrystalline clear gold with a lager-like tight white head. Crescent moon retention leaves one fingerprint of lace on my glass.

Smells mildly like grass, orange pulp and pizza dough. Tastes the similar with more of a peppery hop and toastier malt. I've ready a lot of hoptastic reviews and my beer is missing that aspect. Could be an old 6 pack? I got it at Port Jeff Beverage Center and they seem like they reputable.

The bottle says this was inspired on the west coast and I do indeed feel like Doc on Cannery Row sitting and drinking my glass of beer.

Golden beer with a thick creamy head. Smells of pale malts. Strong hop bite, stronger than most pale ales I'm familiar with. Very crisp, a strong carbonation. I'm not happy that this was my first beer from this brewery because I read a lot of good things about them and I don't think this one is too good.
