Great all around drinkable beer! Has a great citrus floral nose to it, light body and a nice bitter/hoppy taste on the finish. This beer has improved tremendously over the past two years!

VinegarStroke (280) - Napa, California, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Tap: clear,, honey color, medium head and great lace. Medium to medium low hop lift. Fruity, tropical profile. Slightly rubber or resiny. Lifted malty profile. Dry to off dry, not sour but medium high bitterness. Nice depth and length. Balanced even texture apart from bitterness. Solid not great.

Bottle pours dark golden. Nose resin,floral,and dank hops with toffee malt. Taste moderate bitterness up front, then dank bitter hip and grainy malt. If I stretch, might get some pine late. The nose is more promising than the flavor. Light bitter finish.

dwyerpg (4643) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Only labeled 6.3 at the tap takeover at big dogs. Not much in the aroma. A pretty decent beer. A light hop flavor with a body that kind of fades away. Actually I get a little bit of a metallic taste in the finish. A tad disappointing.

greenhorn1 (822) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JAN 19, 2014
22 oz bottle. Very floral nose and taste. Some undertones of pine and citrus. Heavy on the sweet malt, which sorta of ruins the beer.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - MAY 13, 2013
3oz sampler from the brewpub in Carson City, NV. Pours a clear golden color with a decent sized head. Definitely the most bitter hoppy beer they make. It actually was pretty smooth on the palate and was dominated by citrus flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
