Two pints on tap... that's a good sign.

Hazy saturated orange body, a finger or two of creamy white foam that laces quite a bit on the opposite side of the glass. Lasting head retention, coverage for the entire glass, some carb trails visible in the glass.

Zesty citrus peel and slight tropical notes, vaguely earthy like papaya or something similar.

Flavors of bitter citrus peel, grapefruit pith and flesh, dry pale malt, fruit forward but balanced, very well rounded and drinkable. Light to medium bodied, with a moderate bitterness level that contributes to it's drinkability. Hope they keep this in rotation, it's definitely a winner...

Served in a nonic pint glass at the brewpub.

Cue The Band. This stuff pours a lightly cloudy amber-straw topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises mandarin orange, tangerine zest, and light wheat. The taste brings in more of the same, though the fruit comes in rindier, resulting in a more bitter finish. The body straddles the line between hefty light and light medium, with a very light moderate carbonation, a fluid feel, and a dry finish. Overall, a nice pale, though I believe that had the taste truly followed the smell (what with the brightly fruity hops) things would have turned out a bit more positively for me... Still ain't half bad, though...
