bleh...flat irish beer with a bit of hops in the palate. Still flat and dull and not what I was looking for. When they said west coast, I thought it would have a kick...not much to it. Not my style.

Tap at taproom. Nice looking beer. Didn’t get much difference from the original, but it is ok. Cool place with cool people.

Malty aroma is a little spicy - mainly cloves - and just a bit yeasty, inviting a taste. It pours a slightly hazy chestnut with a fine bubbled cream-tan head that leaves some good lacing. Satisfying flavor has malty, clove, nutty, and subtle hoppy and woody notes. Smooth texture has about average fizz and body, the beer’s only real weak point. Let this hot rod roar down your throat!

Clean copper brown pour with two fingers of creamy beige head. Nose is piny with a touch of diacetyl and toasted grain. Some citrus rind and peanut hull in the flavor.
