Filled a week ago at the brewery.

Light fizzy head that barely covers the beer, touch of lacing, super hazy cloudy straw golden yellow orange color.

Nose held up well at least, fresh hop, fruity, little tropical fruit guava and passion fruit, nice musty resin, dank, bright citrus the light tangerine and small citrus fruit not like orange or grapefruit, there is a bit of stone fruit too like apricot, and a light lemony aroma. Light wheat aroma underneath, touch grainy grassy like hay, wheat.

Taste is more fresh resinous hops, musty and dank with light hop oil, little chewy like with hints of tropical fruit, some citrus but not a lot either, again the bright but mild citrus but touch of grapefruit this time as well as some lemon, touch more stone fruit. Then hops turn a little earthy and grassy, but mostly the fruits come through. Wheat is there again, little grainy grassy hay like, with a lighter overall profile than a malt would bring, then turning like orange rind and light pith. Finish brings more orange juice and pith, hint lemon, little grapefruit, little wheat character and nice drying with fair rind bitterness.

Mouth is lighter bod and light carb.

Overall nice, wish I drank it fresher but it was hard to get this and the other growlers I had out to the table. Still nice.
