12 oz. can into a pint glass.
Appearance: Beautifully hazy and darkly peach-colored, with a lot of bubbles floating swiftly to the top, leaving nice raindrop lacing and a good ring of lacing around the body of the brew.
Smell: Pungent and sweet, with spiky citrus notes dominating, especially grapefruit and lemon, with some tangerine notes too and mild peach. But the sweetness isn't overpowering. A lot going on here.
Taste: Initially the balance happens very well here, with some marijuana-like flavors from the hops, that go very well with the zest-like orange and lemon going on. Lingering grapefruit, and again, the sweet peach notes come in, but they're working well to make this extremely balanced. Also some husk and grain notes linger long after the finish.
Mouthfeel: Not necessarily velvety, but the carbonation works very well in this more medium-bodied brew. Lingering bubbles, not so much champagne-like, but they serve the purpose to make everything smooth sip after sip.
Drinkability: A pretty awesome surprise. Went to Portland a week ago and picked up a 6-pack on a whim for $8 or $9, and it's definitely worth it. Baxter only does two brews thus far, but i hope they continue to do more. Check this out if you can.

Poured to a nice, full, off white head with good retention and lacing. Color was a copper / amber and clear. Aroma was floral and hoppy with sime slight ctrus and caramel notes. Tasted hoppy, floral and spicy up front with caramel notes on the back and a spice finish. Mouthfeel was creamy and full with a dry, clean aftertaste.
