Poured a golden color with just a hint of rust color. The hop smell is very subtle and the taste is citrusy to begin with the malt coming in later and a surprisingly nice bitter finish. The mouth feel and carbonation are excellent. For a session type beer this one packs a lot of flavor without a mind numbing ABV level.

I got this as part of a sample pack and hope that it goes into regular production.

Pours out a light orange-amber. Nose is mild: citrus hop and toasted malt. Tastes like SNPA Jr. Caramel malts with a light touch of toast. Citrus rind/oil hops. Dry and clean finish. Mildly seltzer-like. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Delicious. Reminds me of Torpedo/SNPA but lighter.

Pours amber with a large white head.
Nose shows spicy and herbal hops in abundance. Some floral and grassy note too. A hint of straw underneath is the only sign of malt.
Similar flavours: floral, spicy and grassy hops leap out with some light clean malt revealed later followed by a very refreshing bitter finish.
Carbonation is too aggressive.
