Pours a golden/amber color, with a nice white colored head. Fruity sweet smell at first apples, grapefruit, good sweet malty aroma, and finishes up with a touch of hops. Taste is apple and citrus followed by a mild hoppy bitterness. Light bodied and easy drinking.

A - A pale , almost exhausted golden yellow. Poured with a nice full head and leaves some attractive lacing.

S - Dominated by citrus hops with some light wheat malts in the background. Smells refreshing, and frankly just makes me want to dive in.

T - Starts with a nice smooth citrus hop flavor which dims into tastes of sweet fruits. This is all tied together by a solid malt backbone, which while holding the beer together does not make an overbearing presence. This is truly fantastic.

M - Velvety smooth with ideal carbonation. Medium body that is nearly creamy while retaining the hoppy character that I have grown to love.

O - Overall this is a fantastic brew that hits almost every note spot on. While speaking amongst some friends, we have concluded this is one of the best deals available, and if I had to have a nice brew to sip on a a sunny afternoon, there is none better than a little sumpin' sumpin'! Not to mention at $10.49 a sixer with wide availability, this is simply the benchmark.

On draft at Rustico in Arlington.

The beer is golden hued and pretty clear. The white head is about a quarter inch thick, leaving ample lacing on the glass. The aroma is nice, gaining strength as the beer is allowed to warm. Hops, citrus (particularly grapefruit) are the primary scents. The flavor takes things up a notch. Wow, what a delicious beer. Hop forward with ample contributions from citrus fruit. Easy to drink like juice. Minimal malt body and alcohol presence. Nice feel. I will be returning to this beer often. Recommended.
