A pretty gold color with an impressive white head. There was abundant lace.
Mostly sweet malt aroma, some citrus hops.
Caramel malt taste, a little citrus.
OK beer, kind of underwhelming.

Consumed November 23rd, 2013 at the brewery.

Sort of a medium yellow, this beer is a little lighter than their pale ale (???). This beer sports a very fine white head. All the beers from this brewery have very nice heads, it seems.

Aroma is MIA.

Flavor starts with caramel malt, followed by a tingly, drying sensation. Not very flavorful, as it turns out. Low bitterness and a touch of alcohol heat at the end. Medium mouthfeel, average carbonation.

I wonder if they mixed up my sampler glasses of their pale ale and their IPA...

On tap at Haven Gastropub in Pasadena, CA.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest. Taste is much the same with a citrus zest flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
