Pours Cooper, with a fluffy, lacy head. Smells sweet, roasted, citrus hops and citrus fruit. Tastes of citrus fruits, citrus hops and finishes with a caramel malt. Feels creamy and lasting.

Great session beer. Fruity but not overpowering. Well balanced with a clean finish. It isn't a west coast hop forward beer, but it hits the mark strong.

12 oz can

A- Amber/orange and clear. A one finger white head that fades fast leaving some sticky lacing.

S- Sweet fruits like orange and mango. A big sweet maltiness present also.

T- Boom. What a great balance of sweet and bitter. Juicy citrus, mango, apricot.

M- Medium body and carbonation. A dry, clean finish. Very smooth for the bitterness present.

O- Phenomenal. Picked up a six while traveling in The South. Wish I had picked up a case.

This beer is straight up delicious! Citrusy, hoppy, and delicious. I wish they distributed in the Chicagoland area.
