4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Taproom 8/3/13. 5% 75 IBU. Aroma of resinous piney hops. Cooper hazy with white head and good lacing. Taste is hop forward, piney resin, grain malt that has a tart finish which is not good but is still tasty. Surly Furious fans will fig this hoppy version of a cali common. Delicious overall

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Half pint draft at the Indeed taproom in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The pour is a clear orange with a smallish white head. Decent lacing on the glass. The aroma is hoppier than expected, quite a bit of citrus resin and pine right off the bat, moving towards wet cereal grains in the back. The taste follows the nose, bright citrus pine resin hops paired with a malt grain backbone. The palate is medium to light bodied, dry mineral finish. Tasty and unique California Common.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Grumpys NE, pours a copper/orange with a small off white head. Wow lots of hops in the aroma, resinous pine, and citrus, some malt and grain. Taste is hop forward, lots of hop bitterness, under the hops hints of grain and malt. More of a pale ale than California common, just too hop forward. I heard they had some issues with the grain and malt that were out of their hands, still enjoyable, as a pale ale.
