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.
