COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vivid herbal and floral notes invite you in for a lengthy stay, which, given the brew’s modest ABV, is a proposition you just might gratefully accept. Cheers to Chico leisure

DYCSoccer17 (3481) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 11, 2014
10 ounce sample on tap at the brewery. The aroma on this is a bit depressing. Light metallic hop character, but there is little else. Transparent copper body with a medium, strong white head and good lacing. Starts with malty biscuit character. Finishes very mildly bitter, with metallic flavors. Session IPA? I don’t think so. Tastes more like a regular bitter to me. Perhaps this is a bit old?

bhensonb (12308) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Tap at the brewery. Pours amber with a white head. Floral aroma. Med body or nearly. Mild roast caramel with floral hop for flavor. Definitely bitter. But a bit light on malt.
