On tap poured a clear golden color with a good lasting white head. Aroma was mostly citrus hops with a hint of malt sweetness. Taste had a brilliant hop presents with a good balance and small alcohol notes. Overall a great pale ale but not much of a blonde.

On tap at Father’s Office as "Cali Gold XPA". I think several of the entries for Tap’s need to be merged. Pours with a huge white head over a clear golden body. Head lasts for a long time. Aroma is fruity, tons of tropical fruit and pine. No hint of malt. Taste is tropical fruit, herbally, mango. All hops. This is a good...no, great and fruity pale ale that knocks on the door of most IPA’s. Very dry with lively bubbles. Great!

On cask at Brea location. An absolute surprise here. A great beer for the style. Color was a standard dull gold. Aroma was very floral with some bread; dry hop-like aroma. Flavor of flowers, yeast and a bit of citrus and caramel. Quite bitter for style. Nice creamy palate.

COn cask at Taps. Golden with a two finger off-white head, good retention, and actually served at the proper temperature. Big floral perfume hoppy aroma with some faint citrus and herbal dry hopped notes. Some biscuity malts are also present. The perfumey note carried over to the flavor, as did everything else Jingo a semi-dry finish with bitterness at a 4. Low carbonation with a light to medium body. Very good--a pleasant surprise.
