3.8/5 rDev -5.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
A: pours a hazy orange with a finger of white head that fades into a frothy layer with good lacing.
S: lots of grapefruit with pineapple and orange dominate the nose.
T: grapefruit dominates here as well with some citrus rind and pine.
M: medium-light body with low carbonation, this beer is on cask so it's a bit watery. It works well, though.
O: a solid beer overall. Not terribly complex, but enjoyable.
Serving type: cask

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a lightly hazy medium gold color with 1/2 inch of white head that had good retention and lacing.
The aroma was good, lots of pine hops with a bit of citrus. Not much malt showing through. On the tongue the flavor profile was pretty similar, lots of pine and the citrus had more of a presence, especially on the finish.
The body was good, just a bit fuller than typical, but not heavy at all. Drinkability was pretty good, as the only non-pumpkin beer on tap at a local bars recent pumpkin fest, the 3 of these I had as palate cleansers really hit the spot. Certainly worth trying if you see it.
Serving type: on-tap

Draft at the brewpub in Seattle.
Pours a hazy, dark golden orange color with tangerine edges and a 1.5 finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick lasting ring. Streaks of lacing left behind.
Sweet citrus hop aroma with a strong topical fruit presence countered by bready yeast and pale malts. Lots of mango, papaya and orange peel along with some grapefruit and subtle earthy pine. Bready yeast and pale biscuity malts.
Medium bodied with a nice balance of sweet and bitter hops countered by a strong yeast presence and some pale malt. The yeast presence is really prominent with lots of bread and banana flavor slightly taking away from the hops. Lots of tropical mango and papaya along with pineapple, grapefruit and orangepeel. Subtle grassy, earthy bitterness underneath the sweetness. Pale malts come in toward the finish but are a bit prominent for my preference. This beer is well balanced but the hops are too tame as a result.
Serving type: on-tap
