This is a very good tasting beer with high marks for drinkability, smell, and taste.
A - This beer looks charming. It pours a dark orange with a lot of lacing as the glass empties. There is goodness (particles) floating in the beer.
S - Lovely rich smell of sweet citrus, and pine.
T - Juicy grapefruit/cirtus with hop and a touch of piney flavor.
M - Outstanding. Subdued, dense carbonation that expands in your mouth.
O - Very yummy and session drinkable.
This reminds me of Deschutes Fresh Squeezed, but with more flavor and complexity.
This beer reminds me of the beach and the sun. This is a very nice beer with a great future.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a standard pint glass. Moderately aggressive hand. A completely indecipherable blob is stamped on the base of the can.
A: Golden yellow body with a orange tint. Faint haze. 2 fingers of off-white head with good retention. Big and rocky as it goes. Moderate lacing. Great.
S: Fruit-forward hop with a nice citrus character. Grapefruit. Apricot. Light grass. I'm not picking up many distinct elements, but damn, the whole is very nice.
T: A welcoming, fruity bitterness opens. Development of a nicely integrated malt backbone that sits in perfect balance. Finishes semi-dry with a tasty hop bitterness lingering in the aftertaste. Minimal alcohol presence. Excellent citrus and tropical fruit notes. Vanilla.
M: Moderate carbonation with moderate body. Slightly oily. Very smooth.
O: I don't know if it's all the mulch I shoveled today, or the sweet can , or what, but this one just hit the spot. Really a fine drinker. Highly session-able for the ABV. Refreshing but with good depth. Get some to enjoy on the patio.
