On tap at Hempen Hill BBQ. This pours a beautiful deep reddish-orange with a small off white head that eventually fades to just a small film lingering on top. Lovely sticky lacing on the side of the glass.
Aroma is citrus hops. Orange and peach aromas.
Taste is very citrusy and a bit hoppy. Nothing too overwhelming with a bit of some earthy and caramel malt to balance and smooth out the beer. Slightly watery. Mild citrusy/floral hops in the finish.
Medium carbonation. Somewhat one dimensional though not boring. I actually thought it was pretty enjoyable and refreshing. I really like the tap handle too!

Serving type: on-tap
