3.58/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Best by date of 06/28/13

Appearance - Pours a semi-hazy golden orange with an off-white finger width head. Fair retention, resulting in a broken layer of microbubbles across the surface. Lacing is small and spotty at best.

Smell - Strong citrus and floral hop aroma. Moderate cracker, white bread and a faint peppery spice.

Taste - Orange citrus and spice bite at first sip before the malt malts come in, coming across like white bread; sweet, but fairly bland. More orange zest near the finish before a mild lemon peel flavor rides the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Finishes crisp and dry, almost like a summer ale.

Overall - While the hop profile has some interesting character, the malt base is a bit of a letdown. That said I've had much, much worse. I don't think I'd buy this again, but I wouldn't turn it down if offered either.
