Gold Medal at the “2007 World Beer Championship, 90pts” and Gold Medal at the “2007 L.A. County Fair Commercial Beer Competition”. Deep golden amber color with a frothy white head. Rich aromas of caramel, roasted grains, and earthy, citrusy hop aromas. A frothy entry leads to a dry-yet-fruity medium body of candied citrus peels, mild spice, flan, and toasted grains. Finishes with a long, nutty, citrus-accented, piney fresh hop fade. Nicely balanced and refreshing with very good depth of flavor.
