12 oz bottle.
Pours a hazy deep amber with a decent head.
Flavor has more citrus and is overall more fruity than the aroma. Good balancing malt load. Nicely balanced and soft for style.

Pours a cloudy deep orange-amber. Smell is strong of hops and some citrus. Taste is different, kinda of like a hopped up porter, Interesting!!. Overall, good carbonation and a good thirst quencher
