Pint glass on tap at the New Orleans Hilton Airport.

Hazy golden colour with a thin white head leaving lacing down the sides.

Piney herbal hops in the nose.

Same thing on the palate. Long lasting after taste.

A little thin and could use some malt backbone. Decent and worth a try

Clear orange/gold pour with a thick white one-finger head and lots of carbonation. Aroma has bit of lemon and floral hops. Taste has a mildly bitter grapefruit flavor upfront that is quickly balanced out by grainy and bready malt. Finishes crisp with a lingering piney hop flavor.
