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.

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 (2224) - 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.

bvc (1161) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2012
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.

doublebock (514) - California, USA - MAR 18, 2012
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 (2417) - 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.

bleeng (1544) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Bomber thanks to Jimmy. Pours hazy yellow with a huge fizzy overcarbonated head. Nose is fruity with a perfumery odor. Taste is much too spicy and perfumery for me with some yeasty notes. Thin body-this is just a taster for me.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - NOV 3, 2011
A little too tea-y. Cloudy orange with thick head. Herby and orange aroma. Chamomile and coriander are most of the flavours. Uninspiring finish

BMan1113VR (7870) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 10, 2011
On tap at the brewery (labeled as Orange Kush). Pours with a clear orange hued body and a small white head. Aromas of orange, tea, some spice and fruit notes, but clean (not very ester, which isn’t surprising as he actually uses WL007 on this). Flavors are clean, fruity, chamomile and quite bitter. Lively bubbles and very dry.

Lubiere (10453) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2011
A hazed golden wit with a thin white head. In aroma, a rather chalky wit with orange and herbs, so-so. In mouth, a weird concoction with loads of orange blossom hoen, chamomile, a bit light but nice in the end. On tap at Oregon Brewer’s Fest, July 31 2011.
