Best by 10/9/14.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and grapefruit juice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is light with its ABV, but it definitely packs a punch with the hops all around.

Serving type: bottle.

Really light, without enough malt backbone to hold up the hop bitterness. Nose is freshing, almost soapy, but too much unbalanced bitterness for my tastes.

Pours a two finger white head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Slight hazy amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Light pine hop nose and flavor looking for the caramel malt to balance the grassy hops but not there. Bitterness throughout. $2.99 for a 12oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, Ma.
