look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear golden orange/amber color with a two finger, frothy off-white head that slowly fades into a thin ring. A decent amount of lacing left behind.

Sweet citrus hop aroma with subtle grassy pine countered by pale malt character. The nose is almost all citrus with hints of grapefruit, pineapple and lots of orange peel.

Medium bodied with lots of sweet citrus hop flavor up front that lingers over the pale malt backbone into a slightly dry finish. The hop profile is one dimensional without much bitterness and not very dry. More sweet than anything with hints of tropical fruit and citrus peel countered by biscuity malts. Well balanced but not overly complex.
