4.22/5  rDev +16.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22 oz bottle was poured into a stella glass.

Appearance: The beer pours a one finger head. A nice and hazy orange yellow glow with some clarity and signs of carbonation at the top of the glass. Head has reduced and left some lacing on the side of the glass.

Smell: Grapefruit, clementines, and other citrus fruits come tom mind. Some bready and sweet scents from the malts used too. Smells nice.

Taste: Same as above, but the sweet mals blend nicely and make this a good well balanced beer between the citrus and bitterness to the sweet and biscuity malts.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, medium carbonation, a little chewy, and very easy to drink given the 9% is hidden very well.

Overall: This is a another good beer to come out of the state of PA. Will look forward to more of their beers as it show on the website that they have 5 or 6. Might even have to take a road trip someday out there. About a 5 hour car ride.

2.66/5  rDev -26.7%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Undated bomber at 45 degrees into goblet; twist off cap!
Extremely faint aroma of fruity hops
Head initially < 1 cm, off white, frothy; rapidly diminishing to a partial layer approximately 1.5 mm thick
No lacing
Body is medium orange, hazy: a couple of large lumps fell into the glass when poured
Flavor begins slightly bitter with no discernable taste. This ends with a slight astringency. No malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation.

This is not a good beer. It is contract-brewed in Wilkes-Barre, PA, possibly at The Lion. There is virtually no hoppiness nor any other flavor. The appearance and the aroma are both sub-par; only the palate is as expected. IMHO, pass this one by.
