Translucent orange with a large head, excellent retention. Aroma is fruity, grapefruit & orange hops with some floral notes. Very crisp beer with strong fruitiness, some grassy notes, honey-like sweetness but finishes very dry. Strong carbonation, but not so strong that it interferes with drinkability. Fantastic session ale, it'd be nice to see more stuff like this on the shelves.

3.49/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

pours out a murky bronze colour with a thin light tan head. sparse lace. sweet maltiness on the nose with a slight butter and herb accent accented by some grassy notes. the grassy and herbal hop profile carries over to the taste, providing a pleasantly bitter bite that easily balances out the residual sweetness. malt base is meekly sweet showing off a touch of burnt sugar and toasted bread. a fair body for a lower ABV steam beer with a unique mouthfeel that teeters back and forth between sugary sweet and coarsely bitter. nice drinkability. has a session aspect to it.

overall, a rather flavourful brew imbedded within a unique style. sublimely balanced and nuanced. i'd like to sample this on tap.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Had this on tap in standard pint glass at perfect temperature 48-50 degrees

Appearance: beautiful amber color with 1.5-2 finger head.

Smell: Dry hopped, floral, touch of citrus, wheat malt

Taste: touch of mango, with a dry spicy finish. hoppy but very flavorful

Mouthfeel: nice carbonation, good balance.

Overall; definitely a nice spring beer that has a lively taste and a surprising hoppy note.

Serving type: on-tap
