Had this on tap at Birdsall House in Peekskill. It is my first Steam Beer so maybe this is how the style is supposed to taste. This beer was completely unbalanced with a weak malt presence and an over the top yet extremely bitter hop profile. If you like to drink a glass of bitter hops, then this beer is for you. I proceeded to drink a few west coast IPA's after this one that completely blew me away.

On tap at the brewery.

Pours a hazy dark orange. 1.5 inch head, not much lacing.

Slightly weak aromas- spicy and grassy tones are what I get.

The taste follows, slightly stronger. Lightly bitter, with grassy hop flavors coming to the forefront. A bit floral, too.

Light bodied, well carbonated, very drinkable.

A good stab at the California Common style. Could have a bit more bright flavors.
