Pours hazy golden, foamy white head that lingers for a while and turns into a thin cap, plus lots of traces.
Smell balanced with biscuity malts and hops, with some low lemon, peach, bit of pine resin, some grass, sweet, fruity and probably bitter.
Lemon, tangerine and grapefruit first in the taste, some peach and apricot, then only herbal notes till the end. Grassy hops mostly, a touch of pine, faint floral notes, very mineral. Malts are pretty low, some straw, very faint biscuits and caramel.
Light bodied, almost watery, medium to low carbonation. Goes down very easy. Aftertaste a bit too green and rough.
Nothing incredible, but nice hops and huge drinkability. I guess one should've tried it before it was cool.

Chill-hazed dark gold with a pocked carpet of white that's gone fast but trails.
Surprising musty grain sack nose with some mouldy grapefruit skin.
Lemon biscuit with a big whack of grapefruit and lemon hard candy.
Lemon honey herb cough drop end and long bitter linger.
Crisp, salty, oily, a bit thin.

Simple plan, but it's a good one. Like a dumbed down Punk IPA, and that's not a hugely ambitious beer to begin with. Hoppy enough (citrus and IBUs both) to let the hipsters know they're drinking hops, and sessionable like that, but a real beer geek will think this is, like, sooo 2010.

Hazy orange under a loose, sticky white head. Lightly hoppy aroma..leafy, peppery citrus, hay, and earthy pine sap. Flavor is bitter grapefruit, lemon - very "rindy" - spicy and earthy, sort of dirty and dank, with some cereal grain and yeast. Medium bodied and snappy. Very drinkable despite the not-necessarily-ideal blend of hops. Not what I was expecting, but interesting and worth a try.
