4.06/5  rDev +13.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - Pours a semi-hazy golden orange color with a white, near 2 finger head. Good retention, resulting in a thin broken layer of suds across the surface. Fair lacing with little stick.

Smell - Notes of citrus, spice, banana and a bready undertone.

Taste - Follows the nose: citrus notes at the forefront, while lesser clove spice and touches of wheat and banana round it out. Lightly toasted bread. Faint caramel. Finishes with a mild orange peel bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body wih fair to lively carbonation. Smooth; touches of buttery diacetyl. Finishes easy.

Overall - Interesting brew. I'd call it a pale ale / hefeweizen hybrid, at least in terms of flavor. Nice balance. Unique. The best Hangar 24 offering I've had to date. It's one I'll have to pick up when it's first released next spring.

A- Near two inch tall fluffy white head on a cloudy pale orange body. Chock full of effervescence. Head has good staying power, splotchy lacing. Overall visually appealing.

S- Aroma is a mixture of bright orange and lemon zest.

T- Taste can be summed up as wheaty/biscuity with a splash of citrus. The stated 5.2%abv is right where she drinks at.

M- Medium to medium-thin mouthfeel with a carbonation a touch on the high side. I believe that both the mouthfeel and carbonation level work very well with this beer and beer style.

O- Overall, this is a very refreshing "spring" beer if for no other reason than it doesn't demand you attention with every sip. Put this in six-pack cans for $8 and watch the BMC drinkers make this Hangar 24's most profitable beer. Thanks for the try kojevergas!

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pour is a hazy copper orange with a beige head and larger bubbles throughout. Nose is faint, light herbal and citrus notes, fair spice with light yeast and banana notes. Taste is a bit muted, decent coriander spice and lemony banana notes, light hop finish herbal and citrus. Assertive carbonation, oily slick feel, syrupy and heavy on the tongue and incredibly short finish.

The pour is a cloudy golden orange color with a solid white head. A nice hoppiness to it, highly floral, with a light spiciness. Good wheat and bread notes, fairly crisp on the nose. Just a hint of grass. The flavor has a nice touch of citrus along with the more floral and spicy notes. Sweet bread and wheat flavors and a touch of yeast.
