There has been a lot of buzz about this one since winning the gold metal. Some would suggest it is on comparable footing to Zombie Dust. Gasp!

Appearance - The beer was a light coppery color with a bubbly white head.

Smell - The citrus in the aroma is very apparent. I detect fresh oranges, resiny hops, and a certain measure of Earthiness.

Taste - On the initial taste, I detect grassy grapefruit, lemon, pepper, and orange rind. It is a bright example of the style, and is mellow enough to be a pale ale. The aftertaste is resiny, with the hops growing progressively more bitter and perhaps dry.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation was modest, brushing the tastes off of the tongue nicely.

Overall - It is worth noting that I gave this beer a higher score than Zombie Dust.
