I had at New Old Lompoc in early June this review is taken from my notes.
This was brewed for the Sasquatch brewfest.
It appeared a copper like color with a thin white covering.
Smells of fruity hops: a little pineapple, a little berry and a little orange. There is also a slight bready malt smell noticeable to.
The taste is composed mostly of hops, but the beer showcases many different flavor characteristics of hops. There is a nice tropical fruit flavor a nice citrus like flavor, a little pine like quality and of course a strong bitterness. Malt is also in the picture adding a slight caramel taste in the background but it is hops that fully dominate this ale.
The mouth feel was excellent and one could tell the cask was being maintained properly. The temp was perfect: around cellar temperature. Carbonation was very low but did exist.
Though the ale was fairly heavy with both hops and malt I found it to be quite drinkable due to variety of flavors in the beer. A very good beer not sure if Zach the brewer of this ale is going to brew it again but worth trying if you see it especially on cask.

On tap at Lompoc Sidebar, 6.12.2010.
1/2 finger white head, fast dissipation with good lacing. Deep gold hazy body, some visible carbonation. Definitely a tropical fruit nose, balanced with some bready malts. Big ass tropical fruit taste, with an especially bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium full with average effervescence. I'm guessing the ABV is about 8.5%, so be careful on drinkability. Pretty smooth drinking, but not my favorite Lompoc brew.
