Served on cask at the smokehouse.

A. Served a golden amber with a thick very creamy white head that leaves a lot of residual lacing.
S. Smells of citrusy hops, especially oranges and grapefruit.
T. Mild orange flavor with a sweet malty backdrop. A mild hop bite comes through on the swallow.
M. Medium body with a low level of carbonation that produces a very smooth velvety consistency.
D. If the waiter was properly doing his job, I would have consumed 3-4 of these while enjoying the Saturday Nite beef brisket special.

Presentation: Served @~"cellar temperature," in a ~16 oz shaker pint, from cask.

A- Golden/light amber, and slightly hazy. Minimal ring of white head. Ample lacing.

S-Nice grapefruit/floral hops, with minimal malt presence.

T- Lots of grapefruit/citrus hops, with a citrus peel bitterness on finish. Very tame malt sweetness in the mix. Quite enjoyable.

M- Unsurprisingly, fairly low carbonation. Medium to slightly full body, goes down smooth.

D- Very good.

Future outlook: Excellent stuff. I'll be happy to have this again if I get the chance.

On draught at the Smokehouse. This brew is a hazy yellow-orange color with a thin and foamy off-white head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Spicy hops aroma with some straw and malt. Medium-bodied and moderately bitter with hops, citrus and spice flavors supported by a mildly malty base. The finish is citrusy hops with a lightly spiced aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Poured a pale blonde color with some nice head and lacing. It had a slight floral scent, but there wasn't much there. Very nice taste, a great hoppy/floral taste, nice citrus overtones (American hops, maybe cascade?), without going overboard. It goes down very well, nice and smooth.

Golden color, with a bit of copper thrown in. Fairly clear compaired to other offerings. Active carbonation seen rising from the bottom of the glass. Nice fluffy white head trickles down fairly quickly. Nice patches of lace left on the glass at the end.

Floral hop nose, a bit of caramel, and grains. Not a whole lot else. Pretty tame in the aroma.

A bit of caramel flavor, along with some floral and citrusy hop accents. Crisp bitterness, that lingers and moves toward resiny flavors. Pretty straightforward, not much complexity here.

Good body and appropriate carbonation. Good for warm weather, well balanced.
