COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship beer “Orange Kush” is being moved in a different direction. As our little brewery grows, so does our reach. With our beer now available from Oregon down to San Diego and over to Arizona, having the word “Kush” censored on our label, just isn’t doing it for us anymore. Like the game of telephone, with more and more distance between us and our customers, the story behind the beer loses its meaning. Beginning this December you will start seeing a new label out on the market, we are now calling “Orange Kush” - Golden State of Mind. We are very excited to show off our Golden State of California with this new label, and have begun to use, as much as possible, California grown ingredients.
Golden State of Mind is a California Native Ale brewed with loaclly grown Barley, Oats, and Wheat. Local and Organic chamomile, orange peel, and coriander and added to the finish, which gives this beer an amazingly simple refreshment.

750 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy orange color with a small white head. A light fruity nose. A light flavor of lemons, yeast, sulphuric, banana. Not bad.

Small taste at a beer event. Big floral, herbal nose, golden. Sweet, floral, shit loads of chamomile. Some oranges and maybe other spice like coriander. Not as horrible as it should be, and I might like it ice cold, but no thanks.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2070) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle shared by Nate at the Hanshin Seed Event. A slightly cloudy golden pour, mild white head. A great floral, hill of wild flowers aroma with the chamomile fairly dominant. The body is smooth & med-light, coriander, vanilla, lemon, chamomile & witbier yeast flavors. Nice stuff. Very nice though I suspect it’d get to be too much in large doses.

TimE (3191) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 2, 2014
Pale golden color with lots if chamomile, honey and citrus in the nose. Floating hanging around make it a bit strange. The mouth is light. With honey orange and flowers. Refreshing. Simple yet enjoyable.

22oz. bottle at a recent bottle share – reviewed from notes. As Uncle Jesse, the aroma is vegetal and herbal, but I guess I should expect that from a chamomile beer. There is a light citrus aroma that goes along with the herbal character. The malt presence is a little sweet, but it rounds it out a bit. Pours cloudy pale yellow with small head that sits on top of the beer. Taste is soapy with more of the cooked vegetal taste. Light honey and orange character with big astringency. Body is medium with low carbonation. Eh, either both the bottles from Ale Industries were old, or something is just really off about their beers.

Zymurgeist2 (1027) - Redwood City, California, USA - FEB 10, 2014
From bottle to pint glass. Spice, coriander, yeast, wheat and orange mix seductively. Slightly hazy pale orange with a white head that remains covering the top. Spice, wheat and slight chamomile. Medium mouthfeel. Some nice residual sweetness.

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Bottle. A small white head tops a orange-gold body. A little light lacing. Nose is coriander and chamomile, floral, yeast, and grain. Mildly sweet and a touch bitter. Flavor of sweetened chamomile tea, oats, coriander and light orange. Light body and a bit thin. Too much coriander and chamomile.

Bit of a strange smell, possibly the chamomile. Slightly clouded yellow colour with frothy head. Very fizzy beer. Can taste the chamomile, coriander, oats and orange peel. Different tasting, but refreshing beer. (K)
