Poured from their 12oz bottle...
Appearance - Pours nearly 2 fingers of golden eggshell head, body is a gorgeous hazy lite orange amber, lots of carb rising within the body, really nice lace rings after each quaff.
Smell - Bready malt, light floral hops, slight citrus, whiff of sweet tropical ftuit. A bit light in the nose overall, needs a pretty good whiff to pick up the flavors I describe.
Taste - Begins with alot of doughy malt with a touch of yeast, very light tropical fruit with a touch of pineapple sweetness, nice floral hops, finishes very clean with just a hint of grapefruit pith and dry breadcrust long into the finish.
Mouthfeel - Light to medium mouthfeel, not mouthcoating at all but nice fuller flavors in the mouth, carb is just under medium and very smooth and slightly slick, but provides just a few bright edges at the back of the tongue. Finish is nearly clean with slight dryness, but leaves trace malt sweetness in the mouth corners.
Overall - Almost feels & tastes more like an apa, but still a very well balanced ale with some nice complexity - transition is very nice. Smooth drinker, alcohol completely hidden, and still pretty sessionable at 6.1%. Looks great and nearly has the taste to back it up, give this one a try - a must to include in a mixed 6 if you're able.

Reviewed from notes taken 12/26/13.
I poured a thin, nearly white head over a light caramel colored body.
The nose has a very nice bouquet going. Caramel starts it off. Tropical fruit follows up, including mandarin oranges, mangoes and grapefruit. A hint of pine on the back end really fills it out.
Caramel and bread start up the beers taste. Mandarin orange and grapefruit move into a piney finish.
The body is rather weak. The carbonation is not there, and the beer seems watery.
