Judging by past reviews, the brewery has updated the recipe and come out with a better beer (according to most, I would say) or the fact that I had a fresh keg (tapped same day) made a huge difference. Poured a golden orange body with two finger head and the aroma is fresh, piney, citric, even soapy hops with a touch of malt behind it. Beer is smooth, easy to drink, the hops are fresh and tasty with citric, even some grape, notes and finish prickly and crisp on the backend and there is balance from minimal (caramel) malts.

22oz bottle poured into a large mug. Thanks leedle brudda for bringing it from VA!

Pours slightly cloudy and slightly orangish. Huge fluffy head. Smell is floral with a surprisingly sweet fruity smell.

Taste is catty and off. Not cool. Some interesting hops character, but dominated by unpleasantness.

Mouthfeel is oily and astringent, leaves a strange texture in the mouth. I hope this just happens to be a bad bottle, but this is not a good beer. I'll give it a few more sips to see if I warm up to it, but it seems a likely candidate for drainpour.
