Default Label for my West Coast Style Pale Ale

I've even heard the term called "baby IPA"
However this is for a Cali Style Pale Ale while giving a little love to Northern California.

That font is very hard to read when it's small and the red pops too much. A deeper shade would look better, I think.

I like it- just change the font on the sides (hard to read) and it would definitely be a keeper!

Thanks for your comments.
I will definitely change the fonts on the side to something more readable.
As far as the red, it's part of the California State Flag. I Could try something a little more muted and see how that looks. That red seems to be brighter than the red star.

I can dig it for sure. It might be a little bright on a computer, but once you get it on a label it will probably be a little easier on the eyes. Reminds me a lot of Bear Republic's brewery logo.

the red will be definitely toned down on the laserjet.
