32oz mini growler filled at Top Hops in NYC. Pours a translucent orangey honey color with almost no head. Good amount of lacing. The aroma is sweet with some citrus and tropical fruits as well as some grassy notes. Pineapple, tangerine and sweet grapefruit. Some breadiness. A lot going on in the nose. The taste is more of the pineapple, tangerine, and grapefruit. Honey. Sweet with some floral hop notes near the end. Hints of grass with malt throughout. Fair amount of bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Overall, a pretty interesting beer well excuted. Hope to have it again.

Poured into a standard pint, this is a medium amber colored beer with a modest head. The nose offers plenty of hops, as expected, but also a nice clean malt aroma. The flavor mirrors this, with a great balance of toasty malt and sharp, bitter hoppiness. Very drinkable hoppy malty lager, like a hoppy octoberfest!

Purchased this at BEVMO in a 22oz bomber and am anxious to try it. Poured a straw gold with a decent head. The aroma is a combo of resinous hops and sweet malt. The taste is a replica of the nose, but the flavors are a bit more intense than the aroma would suggest--the piney hops flavor was most prominent. I was pleasantly surprised that there was a good malt character to the brew. The finish, as typical with lagers, was very clean. Overall, it was a flavorful, well-balanced brew. I wish I could find a six-pack!
