Pours an orange color with a white head. Nose is citrusy, mostly orange, with some floral, grass, and marijuana aroma. A bit of bready malt sweetness, too. There is a sweet malt character to it, mostly bread and toast. Floral and citrusy hops without the same weed note that was there on the nose. Only a light bitterness on the finish.

On Tap

Pizza Port
Solana Beach, CA

Clear dark orange and amber with a small off-white head that clings messy, irregular lines of lace down the glass.

Bready aroma with some citrus zest presence along with some earth.

Bready and earthy flavors, with some mild citrus presence, grassy hops, and moderate bitterness. Very drinkable.

Medium bodied, slightly creamy with moderate carbonation.

A nice enough, unexciting, pale ale.

On tap for the first anniversary party at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.

Pours a slightly hazy honey orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, honey, citrus zest, and dank weed. Taste is much the same with a high amount of herbal hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is quite dank and smells better than it tastes in my opinion.
