I poured this from 12oz bottle into pint glass.
This beer came highly reccomended by a local market who sell over 1100 beers, cheers country acres, south Lyon..michigan!
This pours to a bright orange clear color with carbonation; the bright orange hue reminds me of octoberfest and a nice IPA.
For me, the smell is by far the most disappointing factors of this beer. It smells so strong of lemon and citrus I almost didn't try it, which I'm thankful I did...to say the leait because it's delicious.
It has a full carbonated mouthfeel, not overpowering; citrus, pine, wood, hops, slight lemon zest taste with more hops, slightly grassy, and bitter with a nice crisp smooth finish. Definatly a nicely balanced and smooth IPA with fantastic hoppiness, almost like a double IPA, GREAT!
This beer is fantastic and at 6%, very drinkable. Deliciously balanced and tastes like it should be around 9-10%, very well done.

A - Dark copper orange, almost bronze, with a slight haziness, moderate head in the pour reduces to a thin but complete white film that delivers pretty massive lacing.
S - Mostly lemon and pine - crisp and clean, but somewhat quiet overall. A subtle note of honey, as well. Overall, the nose is much like a honey lemon throat lozenge, but the most delicious one you've ever had. Initial thought is this could go either way.
T - While the flavor follows the nose, there is not much quiet here. Big hop hits of pine, lemon zest and pith, and a sweet, malty honey core. Lush, almost buttery feel, but with a strong bitter close keeps things snappy.
M - Moderate carbonation and mild drying.
O - A good choice for the hophead aiming to drink a couple down without getting trashed. There are big hop flavors, a nice malt counterpoint, and a reasonable, but not sessionable, ABV.
