Pours a crystal clear copper color with a minimal off-white head that settles into a light ring.

The aroma is of some juicy fresh hops along with some light citrus notes, mainly orange. Bit of a sugary sweetness to it. Pleasant.

The flavor is of a bready malt, slightly toasted with caramel sweetness. The hops are floral and grassy. Decent hop presence but nothing outrageous.

The feel is light to moderate with fairly soft carbonation. Sweet with a nice bitter offset, good balance. Drinks very easy and light.

An above average APA. Nice bready caramel malt with flavorful hops and easy to drink.

Sample from a freshly filled growler served in a standard pint glass.

L - clear copper color with a beige head that thinned out leaving a few spots of lacing.

S - malty aroma with a faint whiff of citrus rind.

T - the citrus rind bitterness comes out more in the taste with malty sweetness keeping it from going too far. The finish is dry and somewhat bitter.

F - medium bodied with a smooth, easy drinking feel.

O - all around it's a pretty good beer.
