look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

A: Transparent yellowish pour - with a tiny head. The bubbles, on the head, are large and disappear quickly.

S: I am getting some kind of fruit - but not anything tropical like I'd expect. It is more of a kiwi smell (fruit not the flightless bird). I also smell maple syrup.

T: Slightly fruity with a mildly bitter finish.

M: appropriate for this style. Good carbonation and body.

O: This is very middle of the road. Nothing noteworthy to make it stand out. Not one to seek out - but not bad.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz. bottle served in a nonic. Pours a sunny, orange-gold with a slightly hazy clarity and a frothy, latte-like half inch bright white head. Nose expresses citrus rind, a noble hops presence and some earthiness. Taste is a bit on the dull side - grainy/husk-like with a hint of citrus fruit and earthiness at the back. Mouthfeel is light and lively with a hint of acidity. Overall, not a bad beer but there's not much flavor - nonetheless, a decent session beer that would probably standout on-cask.
