Our customers can’t get enough of this amber ale that was orginally brewed with hemp seeds, but tastes just as good without them.

Part of the final four competition that the HIGH DIVE is putting on. Great event every Friday... Pour a very apple ciderish red with a bubble bath head.. the smell is intense, I sense a funky slightly piney aroma that sticks hard to the nostrils...To be honest, its a very sticky icky type smell if you catch my drift.. The palate punch is good but not not fantastic, a little grainy on the tail end but mostly this same chronic type taste.. Not as malty as I might expect from an amber but not bad.. definitely a vibe all to own...

Tap at Pap. Some light sweet roast and a touch of citrus hop. Not bad but nothing too fantastic.

Damn, I thought this was a lager, it was so nice and clean. Anyway... Nice doughy malts, cracker, light honey. Well attenuated, a touch of hops, light body. Nice session.

Amber brown color with no head, crystal clear, aroma is sweet barley, flavor is sweet barley... sort of bland and one dimensional, not a stand out... I really thought that a beer called ’chronic’ would have a big upfront columbus nose. False advertising if you ask me. It was a disappointment but it is a clean ale that is well balanced, just a little bland.

Amber orange with thin white head; nose is caramel and grassy hops, subtle; flavor is also caramel with hint of nuts; thin texture with moderate carbonation; a decent amber with medium bitterness and light hop flavor, nothing stands out here.

Draught at the brewpub. Dark amber-brown with a white head. Light caramel, herbal spice and light hops in the aroma. The flavor has toasty and light caramel malts with just balancing hops and a hempy spice. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Nice balance of flavors with the addition of the hemp spiciness.

On tap at the brewpub in San Clemente. Pours a clear, copper-orange body with a thin, cream-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves lots of thick, layered lacing. Sweet and malty aroma with lots of caramels. A light amount of toasted toffees, fruit, nut, and earthy citrus. Similar flavor, more noticeable earthy bitterness and more bready than the aroma. Medium bodied and finishes slightly dry with a soft hop linger. Overall, a solid, well balanced amber ale with more spice than most.

Tap at Boonville Beer Fest. Reddish-amber color with a white head. Aroma of sweet malt, fruity notes, and mild hops. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, spicy/fruity notes, and some hops. Medium palate. Hemp? Uh...if you say so.
