My neighbor picked up this gem at the brewery. The beer poured a clear orange with white head that is not leaving much of a lace. The scent is heavily! There is orange peel, slight pine and a hint of spice. The taste is mostly citrus and bitter with a sweet malt balance. The m outhfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a great beer.

Appearance is bright yellow/orange that pours a fuzzy and very alive pure white head.

Smells of sweet cantaloupe, definite grapefruit, and other tropical zest, oh how I love those wonderful Citra hops!

Taste is an explosion of Citra hops! Grapefruit, cantaloupe, and mango are all very well pronounced and delicious!

Mouthfeel is a full on Citra bomb!

Overall one damn great beer from a damn great brewery! Would love this year round though ;)
