3.8/5 rDev +5.6%
12oz brown bottle, freshness date on label
LOOK: Sturdy head, good showing of lace, perfect gold clarity
SMELL: Guava, orange peel, nutmeg, light biscuity grain
TASTE: Lush smoothness , lighter bodied, citric, exotic fruit, effervescent, kiss of bitterness, lightly grainy, dry finish, clean
Good balance between the hops, malt and fruitiness. Good twist on the lighter summer seasonal flavor here, very drinkable ... super sessionable with enough flavor to keep it interesting.

Poured into a tulip glass
Bottle date: May 21, 2014
Pour date: August 18, 2014
APPEARANCE: haystack yellow with a mild haziness. Poured a nice 1" white lacy head, which quickly reduced to a lamina of froth, leaving pleasant lacing on the walls of the glass.
SMELL: Not much to it. Reminds me of lemongrass and mildew.
side note: I didn't even read its ABV until after the review. even more impressed with its flavour.
TASTE: This beer shouts eucalyptus! The combination of the citrusy hops and the dankness of the yeast makes this beer taste like West Coast arboretum. Aftertaste rests on the back of the tongue and feels a bit sour - almost like eating plain Greek yogurt.
FEEL: bubbly and light-bodied.
BURP: bountiful and pleasant, not foamy.
OVERALL: I will return to this beer.I was caught off-guard by its balance and flavour.

A good summer beer. Tropical, tangerine fruity aroma and flavor, with light malt: Sweet, bready. The aroma is really nice. Sweet orange malt and moderately bitter pine/grapefruit peel flavor. A very nice beer. A beer I would love to have again. Recommend this highly.

Pouring a deeper, slightly cloudy gold, it has a short-lasting fizzy white head. A miniscule amount hangs on and leaves some lacing. The aroma is almost non-existent with a slight funky earthy hops and malt sweetness to it. The taste is little more complex than the aroma. There is a light hint more robust malt on the finish I can't quite identify. The body is a little watery and thin. It's definitely an easy drinker but it just hasn't have much oomph behind it in the flavor department.

3.39/5 rDev -5.8%
A: crystal clear; golden in color; less than a 1 finger white head that receded quickly; no lacing;
S: citra, citra; citra, with some light malt in the background;
T; the grain and malt are much more prevalent here, with the citra peeking through;
M: light bodied; light carbonation (the keg kicked on the next pour, so that may have affected this);
O: refreshing and well balance, although I would have preferred more citra flavor;

Appearance- Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a very clear rich golden color with a white head that dissipates quickly.
Smell- Very faint smell. Have to really try to get the smell of citrus and mainly lemon. Not a bad smell just not overwhelming or anything that stands out.
Taste- Light flavor with some bready malts and some light citrus hops. Very balanced and delightfully refreshing.
Mouthfeel- Light and thin. Very refreshing with a lot of great carbonation that just adds to the carbonation.
Overall- Very refreshing summer beer. Perfect for a hot day. Nothing over the top but a very well balanced beer that does its job perfectly.
