Bomber into a tulip...hazy yellow orange with a light skim.

Taste and smell are of mild citrus, mostly orange peel, and lemon spritz. Light malt backbone provides some sweetness and a touch of rind and bitterness at the finish wraps things up.

Eh...it's a decent pale. Curious how much the TG name plays in the ratings here. Happy to try, but by no means a top of the line pale.

Pale straw appearance with a one finger, wispy white head. Smells pretty dank which I generally like - earth, pine, grass, weed and a hint of lemon. The taste veers too close to the vegetal side for my liking - I feel like I am eating a dandelion stalk. Mouth feel is average with pretty decent carbonation. There is something about the 3 TG beers I've now reviewed that my palate disagrees with. I like earthy flavors but this beer is too damn vegetal tasting. Oh well, can't say I didn't give TG a fair shake.
