Growler from CF tap room. Nice orange amber, thin beige head, fine lacing on the glass. Tart, citrusy aroma. Taste is pine wood and citrus, with grapefruit aftertaste. Tasty and smooth. This growler will be gone in no time!

22 picked up tonight at Bier Thirty while grabbing a couple other beers for a trade that needs to go out. Poured into my slim tulip and enjoyed while finishing up some writing about the Pres Debate. 2 finger off white head.... great retention and lacing... the brew is hazed orange.

Nose shows a fairly fruity hoppiness... sorta tropical balanced by citrus zestiness... smells pretty malty... the malt profile seems to mute the hoppiness a bit...

Flavor is pretty good, though again the malt sorta trump the hops too much... engaging bitterness helps balance the malts... hops are fruity and even a bit floral but more hop flavor is needed.

Body is a touch high too for my liking, but it is not a deal breaker... carbonation is spot-on. Not boozy at all.

Pretty good.... I would like to see more hop flavor and aroma... less of a pronounced malt profile would help, dry it out some. I would buy this one again.

4/3.5/3.5/3.5/3.5
