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

Charlzm (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 25, 2008
On draft at Pizza Port San Clemente, 02/25/08. Clear golden color with no active carbonation and no aroma in small taster glass. Restrained, mellow malt character, no hoppiness to note. Slight corn on aftertaste. Mildly sweet. Did not note that promised hemp flavors or mouthfeels.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - APR 20, 2014
On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad as "Carlsbad Chronic" back in 2010. Clear, light amber pour looking like fruit juice. Taste is fairly sweet with red fruit juiciness: sugar, sweet cherries, strawberries. Wasn’t a big fan. Was expecting something a bit hoppy given the name. Earlier Rating: 10/12/2010 Total Score: 3.1

PhillyCraft (5979) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2011
On tap, pours a slightly hazy dark orange, almost light brown. Thin head, lacing was medium. Aromas of sweet and german malts, some citrus from the hop nugs. Taste is sweet, with balanced malt profiles dominating, lemongrass, pepper, caramel, woodiness finishes with a honey hop bite. Not the best amber ale but still sessionable and with a name like this you know it is gonna sell.

joeneugs (5895) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 21, 2011
On tap at PP Carlsbad. It pours gold with a white head. The aroma is grainy, and the flavor is very grainy and bready with a medium body and a hint of adjunct sweetness in the finish. Just OK.

nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2011
On tap at PB TapRoom. I expected this to smell as advertised, but I guess this is different than the original recipe. Sweet malty caramel flavor profile that finishes with an odd note of gelatin. Wierd.

Draft at Pizza Port with Linh. Pours a hazy amber brown body with thin lacing. Aroma is very light caramel. Mouthfeel is smooth and thin with notes of sweet caramel malts, and some other fruit.

I don’t agree with the style classification here. This is either an amber or an english pale. Little bit of cramel malt sweetness and a lotta bit of grassy herbal hops. Much more an english IPA.
