Served out of a growler, smell comes off with hints of caramel and light barley.
Maybe some nuts in there as well. Color is a apricot kind of reddish orange.
Mouthfeel is nice, not too heavy or too light, taste is great, really gets the gist of a bitter beer. Overall I say that this beer is a perfect session beer and that I would recommend it for anyone who likes bitter type beers.

This beer pours a copper color with amber hues. The head is one inch of egg shell colored foam that recedes slowly into a quarter inch cap of lacing. The aroma is very strong. There is a very nice balance of floral, herbal, and citrus notes that creates tremendous complexity. A lover of hops could smell this beer all day without getting bored. The taste is more herbal and floral than the aroma, but there is still a noticeable citrus component in the finish. The malt plays a secondary role. Bitterness is moderate yet firm. This is a very nice tasting beer. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with nice light carbonation that allows the beer nuances to be more greatly appreciated. Overall, this is a great beer. I could easily session this all afternoon long without tiring of it. I will certainly drink this beer again.

Poured from can to nonical pint glass.
A: Pours light copper to amber with a decent white head that fades rather quickly. Carbonation streams to the surface. Nice, sticky lacing clings to the glass.
S: Chock full of big, juicy, citrusy hops with just bit of maltiness sweetness lending to the nose. A mixture of citrus rind and apricots.
T: Wow ! Flavor explodes in the mouth with the 1st sip. Lots of of those big, juicy citrusy, hops. Malt definitely takes a back seat to the hoppiness fo the beer, though its there if you really look for it. Mildly sweet with plays in harmony with the hops. Just a touch of caramel or honey. Hoppy bitterness lingers long on the tongue after the swallow.
M: Nice body for such a low abv beer. Medium, somewhat oily with ample carbonation.
D: One of the better beers I've had in a while. Combination of citrusy hops and low abv makes this a fantastic session beer. Wish this was available year round as it has found a permanent spot in my fridge. Seek and enjoy. Highly recommended.
