A nice ale from the Mother Lode area of California. Definitely a PNW hopped beer, a copper appearance with minimal head gives way to a fruity aroma. A very balanced beer that’s pretty tasty and still hopped a bit. Not bad.

Bottle. Huge foamy head....bad bottle?? Somewhat metallic in taste and smell. Copper appearance. Not too good, but will try again in case I got a stale one.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the Iron Door Saloon in Groveland. Dark orange color with white head. Aroma is green-earthy, some citrus. Taste is surprising, herbal-green, some citrus again, but very different. Something does not quite fit together here. Okay though.

Thanks to anggrec for this sample. Unfortunately, this was a bust. The most overly carbonated beer I’ve ever had. Poured into a tulip glass, the head filled it immediately. Even a very slow pour into a tilted glass did little good. The aroma was the best part, malty with a bit of hop balance. The flavor had a metallic tinge, a bit sour. The beer was very thin. Maybe a bad bottle.
