look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5
A: Cloudy orange-amber color with a thin coating of off-white head. Dissipates rapidly but does leave decent lacing.
S: Strong citrus and pine hops here, with orange sticking out in particular. There's a sticky sweet aroma that probably is coming from the combination of hops and malts. Light musty scent present too.
T: Weedy, piny hops really dominate the flavor here; a "sticky" flavor starts things off before a bitter wash really clears everything else out. Not a particularly bad taste, but it's rather one dimensional and not something I would look for.
M: Medium bodied with a moderate dose of carbonation lending some texture.
O: There is a very strong flavor here but that's not enough to carry the beer; I'll give it another chance in the future but this particular glass wasn't outstanding.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Pale golden orange. Nice white head. Chunky collar. Pretty clear.
Smell - Popcorn malt. Grassy and grapefruit hops.
Taste - A little resiny. Grainy malt. Cracker malt, a little bit of that popcorn flavor. Minimal bitterness.
Mouthfeel - Light. Medium carbonation. Drinkable.
Overall - Drinkable and pretty flavorful. Nothing unique, though.

4/5 rDev +3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Appearance: pours an orange color with a 2" fluffy head that slowly fell. Thick lace painted the glass during the session.
Smell: oranges and a soft bitterness were the dominant aromas.
Taste: Caramel, orange, a bit of grass / earthiness, and a nice floral bitterness. Nicely balanced flavor profile.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, less crisp and mildly dry late.
Overall: this beer was very easy to enjoy and tasted great as it seemed to be a super fresh keg. This can be a sessionable beer and can be enjoed with a variety of foods.
Serving type: on-tap
