Pours a light golden color with a nice white head, good lacing. Lots of little floaters in the glass though.

Smell is slightly sweet, little bit of malt and a little bit of citrus hops. Very light and easy.

Taste is good, pretty sweet with some a good summer spiciness. Bitterness is subdued and well balanced.

Mouthfeel is good, lots of carbonation adds to the spicy flavors.

Drinkability is very good, you could polish off a sixpack of these no problem. A welcome summer beer and a staple in my fridge.

Hazy golden/straw color with an orange tinge. Frothy head. Summery indeed.

Hay, orange, floral hops and some yeasty notes in the nose.

Starts with orange and lemony hop flavors that move into a hard to describe sweet flavor. The finish is mildly spicy and floral. Bitterness is balanced as one might expect.

Mouthfeel is light to medium with plenty of carbonation. Overall this is a well crafted beer and is nice company on a warm day. I just don't understand the hype associated with it. Still very nice.
