Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
Easy drinking with hints of sweet corn, bread and caramel, finishing with a blast of citrus hop character and just enough crisp to balance the sweet. It's a toast to rolling surf, Baja hoodies, beach BBQs and the elusive green flash.

Sampled a little earlier this evening on 5/12/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pint glass.

Pours a burnt orange in color with a very thin off white head. The lacing was of thin sheets that hugged the sides of the glass. The aroma is of some citrus and hops with a hint of caramel and pine. More going on with the taste with the above mentioned with the orange zest coming through. A slight bitter finish. Perfect carbonation for the type. Overall, wasn't bad but OK.

Super Nova pours a darker cooper color with a large lacing head. There is a crisp and earthy, with grassy aroma. The taste is very crisp, earthy undertones, with hints of a grassy like flavor, and a light hoppy taste. Good body,, good flavors, easy to drink too. Overall its a nice enjoyable beer, but a bit boring.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Hazy burnt orange, slightly pale yellow. White head calms to a film, nice rings of lacing.

Aroma: Mostly a malt experience with orange and lemon peels.

Taste: A balance of sweet malts transitioning to a tangy, bitter hop finish. Good lemon peel presence, tastes very citrusy.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.

Overall: Definitely tastes like a summer beer, with excellent citrus notes.
