22oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Received in trade with mrmiles. Thanks.

A - Pours a hazy golden orange with ample off-white head. Sticks to the glass well.

S - Citrus, pine, hops explode in a very fragrant bouquet.

T - Similar to the nose. Citrus with a mild bitterness.

M - Light to medium mouthfeel with an ample amount of carbonation.

O - I was satisfied with this beer. I found it to be enjoyable and would have it again given the opportunity.

Sampled from a 22oz bottle purchased at The Best Damn Beer Store in downtown San Diego.

A - Golden with a slight haze and a big white head of large bubbles. It leaves some decent lacing behind.

S - A burst of citrusy, floral and piney hops with some toasted malt.

T - A moderate citrusy and piney hop flavor with a firm bitterness. But it fades a bit at the end. The start is much better. The malts provide a foundation but don't stand out.

M - A slightly creamy consistency with a moderate carbonation.

D - This one is easy to drink but not especially compelling. I enjoyed it but given the other choices in CA, this one doesn't stand out.
