Light amber/orange. Half-inch head quickly dissipates to film with some bubbles.

Mild smell of citrus and hops. Flavor is similar, but with less citrus and more hops. Slight bitter bite on the finish. mouth feel is okay.

Slightly above average. Not something I would drink a bunch of, but not interesting enough to be a sipper, either. I'd like to try it again with a meal rather than on it's own, as I can see it working well for that.

Off the tap at the brew pub. Thin head with medium straw colored body.
The aroma is great: grapefruit and lemon.
The taste is smooth with a good dose of malt and moderate bitterness.
The texture is crisper with moderate carbonation and medium body.
It's a nice, easy drinking ale and flavorful.

On-tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad

The beer is almost amber in color with a white head. Mild grass aroma followed by citrus peel and floral hops. A strong toffee and toasted bread smell to it as well. Just decent on the nose, sort of bland. The flavor is somewhat sweet, but still a bit bland. Light hop flavors of citrus peel, grass and pine. A light bitterness on the finish.

Had on tap at Rubicon brewing. This one pours an orangish body with a medium head. Hops are pretty potent and it also has a sort of herbal quality to it. Can't quite put my finger on it, but it's definitely spiced to a point. I didn't particularly like the balance of it, but my girlfriend loved it.
