Pours a crystal clear orange amber with a thick firm head. Initially outstanding looking but head fades rather fast. Still, good looking.

Nose is muted fresh pineapple with lemon mousse tones. Pleasant and true to style but a little diluted in assertiveness.

Mouthfeel is medium/light in that there is a light diluted character again. Hints of "watered down" mouthfeel but not bad; still somewhat inviting.

Taste is light diluted bitter pine. Somewhat true to style but flavors are a bit simple and thin.

Finish is a long lasting dull pine bitter.

This is not bad beer; it is just not exceptional either. A bit more of a bright character and this could have some real potential to appeal.

On-tap at Lucky Devils, Hollywood, CA

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has some amber hues. No carbonation is visible.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy hops and caramel malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell, except that there are also hints of tropical fruits. There is a light amount of bitterness and faint hints of sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a very good balance between the malts and hops. As such, it is rather drinkable for the style.
