3.79/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from growler to pint tumbler.

A- bright translucent gold with head that dissipated quickly but left decent lacing

S-oddly enough it had a bit of phenolic aroma

T- great bitterness but with a phenolic presence in flavor, too.

M/D - great texture and carbonation match up with the interesting combination of flavors to make for an easy drinker.

On tap at the brewpub.

Appearance: orange-amber body under a long-lasting off-white head with ample effervescence.

Smell is of floral hops, orange peel, thyme and peaches.

Fruity-floral cracker malt front with lots of pine-bittering hops in the long finish, which is excellently spicy.

Mouthfeel is rich and smooth with the nice carbonation spreading everything around.

Drinkability is okay: this is a bit one-dimensional, but then it's a California Common, so what do you expect, right?

I enjoyed this on tap at the brewpub in New Albany, IN. Served cold in a tulip pint.

A - A deep copper burnished caramal w/ an inch of light cream that drops quickly. Has a fine bead. There is moderate stickage. The contrast between the red/amber and light tan head is striking as the rings of lace cling tenaciously.

S - Nice mellow simcoe and cascade citrus w/ subtle floral notes and tangerine/clementine-like juicy sweet aromas.

M - Very mild bitterness seamless malt and hop unity, the sweetness seems to be submerged at first but actually works in tandem w/ the slightly bitter and tart notes of the fresh hop notes riding the fruity and effervescent feel.

T - Very much like a pale ale w/ the accent ofn the flavor of the simcoe and the cascade along for the ride. I am very impressed w/ the 1st beer I have had at a brewpub in Indiana. Nice malt anchoring(no pun intended) the sweetness is restrained, but has a nice dry and lightly grainy mild roasteed flavor w/ subtle rye notes -kind of bready as it warms w/ a subtle astringency and the hop flavors remain all the way true to the end.

D - Described as a "session beer" on the menu, I can't exactly agree, but 5.6% is close enough. Very Drinkable, I could return to this without hesitation. For me this has a swiss army type of universal flavor. The malt smoothness and plenty of hop sweetness and citrus flavor. This ale is well crafted and hard to find fault with the quality.
