A - Rusty-orange with a beige head. Long lasting lacing.

S - Very shy nose with hints of tropical fruits and orange. Slight toast aroma as well. The nose was very nice just wish it was more forward.

T- Taste was quite similar to the nose, tropical fruit and toast.

M - Medium/Light body with a very clean finish

O - I was expecting more from this beer and in many ways somewhat disappointed. While it was very drinkable, I don't think I'll be buying any more.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance - Pours a semi-hazy golden orange with an off-white, 2 finger head. Fair retention, leading to a broken layer of surface suds. Leaves a good amount of lacing around the glass with nice stick. 3.75

Smell - Nice bouquet of orange and light tropical character backed by a healthy amount of caramel and butter toffee notes. I could stand to smell this all day. 4

Taste - Not as prominent in flavor as the nose suggests, but what's there is cohesive. Lightly toasted bread and hints of butter toffee backed by a moderate citrus undertone. Finishes with traces of orange pith bitterness and caramel. 3.75

Mouthfeel - Light in body with fair carbonation. Smooth with slight silkiness, but nothing special. 3.5

Overall - Much better my second and third go-around with this beer. Is it $10 a sixer worthy? Probably not. Might buy the occasional $4 bomber though. 3.75

Picked up a single from Total Wine in early March for $1.99. No freshness date.

Beer poured orange with a soap bubble head that dissipated quickly.

Nose has hints of tropical and citrus hops.

Taste is pretty well balanced between pale and crystal malts and citrus and mango hops. Light lingering grapefruit rind in the after taste.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and decently carbonated.

Overall a pretty tasty brew that is worthy of a try.
