Dry, sweeter version of a classic west coast style. Light, crisp and bitter. Drinks like a pale ale more so than a 7.2% ipa. It's pretty good. I can understand the hate for the guy running hobo, but not for this beer.

Light amber color and cloudy. Small head but it leaves an initial ring of lace, sporadic spots thereafter.

A bit of grapefruit to this smell, although it is milder than I expected. It's a bit odd with an aroma I associate with car oil. It's light but it clearly doesn't belong.

The flavor starts malty but the finish is very harsh, astringent. Oddly, the base grains seems to come through more mid-taste. The aftertaste is biting and forever. The hop also has an earthy tone to it--one that I do not like. Leans to the rich side but the carbonation is also a bit high. I'm afraid I can't recommend this one. The combination doesn't work.
