This is actually one of my favorites from Santa Clara Valley Brewing. It was the beer that popped my cherry at scvb. Like most of the beers I have had from here it has a firm malt presence that is not unpleasant. Hints of caramel are aligned just right for the murder scene of hops that is used to brew it. An all time favorite I suggest to anyone that is looking for a good brew from San Jose.
