look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Pours moderate orange in color with just a pencil of head. Slightly cloudy. Nose is yeasty with a bit of citrus lurking. Flavor is extremely balanced with sweet citrus and malt apparent first on the palate and slightly earthly hoppy bitterness on the back. Interesting in that it kind of harkens back to a pre huge citrus west coast IPA era. Don't get me wrong, the citrus is here, it is just not as in-your-face as you typically see these days. Very nice. Clean and refreshing finish.

Nice gold color, white head. Hints of honey, fresh grass, pretty mild actually. Great body, clean and crisp finish, malt, bright orange.
