look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Luminous clear brass in color with a 1 finger offwhite head. Good amount of lace.

Scent is fresh and bready with earthy, citric and oniony notes

Taste is light citrus with a hint of onion. Very crisp and clean with a mineral flavor.

Drinkability is very very high.

Mouth is medium - light and nicely carbonated.

This is a refreshing and eminently drinkable session ale with enough hop scent and flavor to satisfy.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A-pours a semi-transparent light amber/orange color with a slightly off white foamy head with good retention.
S-bit of sweet malt/honey, with moderate citrus and pine hop aroma
T-Citrus and malt up front followed by a bit of pine bitterness that is followed by more malt sweetness. Citrus bitterness lingers on the palate
M-medium bodied
O-Really well balanced beer with tons of flavor but still extremely drinkable. Look forward to having it again.
