On tap at Hollister Brewing Company in Goleta, CA.

Pours a clear golden-orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thick swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest 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 good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
