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.

Aroma - tons of orange, some wheat, spices (chamomile). Cloudy straw colored pour, white head with little retention, little lacing. Flavor is heavy on the orange, pleasant wheat malt and light grains, herbal and tea notes, citrus, fairly low bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation. Interesting take, very easy drinking.

22 oz bomber courtesy of bvc. The pour is a hazed golden copper with a three inch off white head. The aroma is soft floral, dried flowers, along with a bitter orange peel, and finishes with dry chamomile tea. The taste is the chamomile up front, very herbal tea like, followed close behind by the bitterness of orange peels, and finishing quite dry with a floral potpourri. The palate is light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, and the dry floral finish. Tad watery in the finish. Interesting take on the style, thanks for sending my way Brandon.

A - Pours a clear golden orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of wheat, orange peel, coriander, Belgian yeast, pepper, and some other spices. T - Starts off with a mix of wheat with some orange peel a touch of lemon zest and some coriander. Through the middle, some Belgian yeast, chamomile, and a bit of pepper come through. The finish is a mix of wheat, orange peel, Belgian yeast, coriander, and some other spices. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with sweet and lightly spicy finish. D - Very drinkable. Good overall balance and some nice flavor is added by the herbs and spices.

not a big fan of wheat beer. this one is more like an orange herbal tea. lot of citrus flavor. drank this on tap at the source. some fresh smells and flavor coming off this one. not as salty as some of the other whites. i think the atmosphere and freshness add a lot to this rating. not quite beer enough for me, could probably drink gallons of the stuff tho. i really like the rye beer better, but not a bad one by any means. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Taps in Petaluma for Ale Industries brewery pint night (as Orange Kush). Bright and floral, citrus without being overpowering. Lower alcohol and extremely drinkable, pairs wonderfully with spicy or heavier foods. I could drink several pints of this and be a very happy girl!

joet (2056) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - APR 16, 2012
Warm golden-orange, slight haze, sweet aroma with neroli notes, other fruit esters - pear, significant non-descript bitter in the finish. Compact and without flaws, this is interesting.

Draft at apex. Hazy golden with dense small white head. Fresh baked white bread, touch of pepper, orange zest, vanilla, faint spice...clove and cinnamon mostly. Tight carbonation and a somewhat chewy/creamy body. White flour doughiness, dry pepper, light spice, touch of banana and orange, hint of pine and some sweat.

Cloudy yellow with heavy carbonation and huge white head. Aroma of grapefruit. Tastes like lemon peel with a hint of pepper. Hefeweizen like yeastiness but not as yeasty.

LOVE this beer. Recently I’ve been filling up 6 growlers a week at their tap room.

Ethereal (2410) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 28, 2011
On tap (as Orange Kush) at Pi Bar, San Francisco, 5th March 2011. Hazy but glowing orange. Gentle zesty nose. Lightweight palate. Really doesn’t taste of much, a bit of a disappointment. Not objectionable but for the next pint I’d pick something with more flavour.
