COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This golden-hued ale flaunts the exceptional flavor and aroma of west coast hops with notes of orange, citrus peel, tropical fruit, guava and floral honey. The lightly toasted caramel malt balances the resinous hop flavors and firm, yet balanced bitterness that make this beer a full bodied hop lovers’ paradise.

On tap at Holsteins in OC. Cloudy straw with thin white head. Citrusy hops and honey aroma. Nice balance of sweet and bitter without being too malty. Medium body, nice and crisp. Nice beer.

On tap at The LA Galaxy v Sporting Kansas City 0-0 game on 2nd June 2016. This was the best part of the evening! Amber/golden pour, white head on my brew in it’s plastic cup. Tropical fruit aroma with a citrus leaning, taste similar: hoppy front on a good solid malty base. I really enjoyed this.

bulldogops (1988) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 23, 2016
Rating #1581 - 21.03.2015 - On tap at the Library in Venice Beach. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with tropical punch, citrusy, toasted malt. Taste is more of punchbowl sweetness, light honey biscuit malt. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious.

Marheb (4759) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 1, 2015
(En fût au Ashland Hill): Superbe robe cristalline et effervescente qui dégage des arômes d’oranges confites, gazon et caramel fruité. Le corps est juteux avec une résine tardive mais insistante et une franche amertume qui se prolonge indéfiniement.

On tap. Golden pour with a white head. Sharp pine and bitterness with melon and citrus in the aroma. Taste is clean bitter hops with pine and grapefruit and minimal malt sweetness. Clean mouthfeel. Tasty!
