Pizza Port Chronic Ale

This is a 4.9% ABV amber ale from the Pizza Port Brewing Company of Carlsbad, California. They were in fact a pizza place before they started selling their own beer.

The beer pours copper, orange, amber and apricot in color. There is a short-lived head of off-white foam. The aroma is malty, fruity, berries and oranges, tangerine. The taste is more malty than the aroma, caramel, light fruit, mostly berries. There is almost no bitterness. The mouthfeel is smooth, but very light, too watery, with almost no carbonation. Based on the name I was expecting a West Coast dank hoppy amber ale (and therefore picked the wrong glass), but this is very light and not at all hoppy.
