Famous San Francisco brewpub gets Cold Spring, Minnesota brewery to can its finest offering. Busy piney spruce swagger informs up-front pineapple-nectar sweetness, subsidiary apricot-peach-tangerine tang and tertiary cantaloupe-watermelon juiciness to creamy malt chocolate-y backdrop. Bitter grassy-hopped orange-peeled lemony grapefruit influence penetrates sly currant sway. Reserved hop profile may preclude hard-headed hop-heads, but the loss is truly theirs. Well integrated fruited malting and minor matchstick head nuance not far removed from Samuel Adams Boston Lager.
