Pours out a cloudy orange color. Decent sized head but little lacing. Lots of lemon scent with spicy pepper overtones. The guy at the Samuel Adams brewery said the "Grains of Paradise" are an actual spice that is has a slight pepper flavor (and yes, that is the real name of the spice). The taste is average, dominated by lemon and pepper again. Could do with a little less carbonation. Not a bad brew, but I have to say, it's perfect for a hot summer day. Man, I can't wait to break out the grill on the back porch.

A: Golden orange sunset transparency, sliver of head, mild random carbonation visible, TONS of lacing.
S: Hops forward, slight spice or grain presence.
T: Mellowed hops, slight orange.
M: Light body, light-medium carbonation. Really pleasant and refreshing.
O: Love it. Wondering if the mellowed hops on draft turns into A LOT of hops out of the bottle. If not, this will most definitely be in the summer rotation with Dos Equis and Troegs Sunshine Pils.
Serving type: on-tap
