Pour is lightly hazed yellowish amber with a thin white ring. Nose has a light cereal with a hint of rubber. A bit phenolic with a hint of pine and citrus. Taste has a light bitterness and gentle carbonation. Grain an cereal on the light body with more citrus and a light pine. Bitterness lingers with some dirty wheat. Bitterness out weighs the other hop flavors an malts are a bit unrefined and unfocused.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Beer pours a copper hued orange with a thin foamy cap that dissipates to a few bubbles. The scent hits me immediately upon opening my growler. Strong smells of orange peal, pine and a touch of caramel. The piney citrus scent from the hops is absolutely wonderful.

The taste is not quite as strong as the scent. It begins with a touch of citrus that moves toward the pine like resinous character, but refrains from becoming very bitter. The malt has a caramel hint, but largely remains a backdrop. The mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium and a little thinner than I would prefer. All in all a greats smelling beer that falls short of my expectations on the palate, but still enjoyable all around.
