O: Solid; Easy enough to drink - the beer has a solid tropical fruit character, though finishes a little too bitter.

On tap at the Surf 'N' Suds Beer Festival held at Carpenteria State Beach in Carpenteria, CA.

Pours a hazy golden-orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, dirt, and earthy hop aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, citrus zest, dirt, and earth flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has a lot of dirt and earth qualities along with the citrus hops I am getting.

Serving type: on tap.
