Tap in Cali sometime last year. Orangish pour. Lightly hopped and fruity aroma. Flavor is much of the same. Medium body. Fruits up front, light hops towards the back. Nice touches of sweet malts throughout. Decent beer.

I thought this was a pretty unique beer. Nice brown ale maltiness when the beer first finds you tongue, but then pow, your tongue is enveloped by a real nice hoppy blast. A unique and tasty beer.

Sweet with some complexity of flavor that gets lost in the overwhelming caramel. I didn’t hate this beer, but I struggled with its lack of balance. There is plenty of malt in the flavor and aroma with some lightly roasted notes that I wish were a bit stronger. The abv isn’t high enough for the beer to be syrupy or horribly sweet but it tended in that direction for me. The mouthfeel is fine with appropriate carbonation.
