This is a very good tasting beer with high marks for drinkability, smell, and taste.

A - This beer looks charming. It pours a dark, rich orange with a good amount of sticky foam as the glass empties. There is goodness (particles) floating in the beer.
S - Lovely rich smell of sweet citrus, and pine.
T - Juicy grapefruit/citrus 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.
