Light and easy. Not to hoppy. Not trying hard. Not to much. 22 oz bottle and on tap. She is just right. Get a growler and lay down with her.

Solid hoppy ale. On tap and was fresh. Better than the reviews here.

Just tried this on tap at Hopyard American Ale House in Pleasontan Ca great spot with lots of fantastic beer on tap. The beer has a very easy going nose that will not offend anyone but also doesn't make it memorable, it does make up for it in the taste however nice bright hops and a bigger bitter finish than you are lead to believe overall a bit above average pale.

The lower ratings on this one surprise me. Nice bright hop characteristics burst from the glass. Some tropical fruits and citric notes with a light grassy flavor. Low bitterness and very easy to drink. I would have thought this was an easy drinking IPA if I didn't know better.
