Notes/Commercial Description:
A beer cloaked in secrecy. An ale whose mysterious and unusual palate will swirl across your tongue and ask more questions than it answers. A sort of dry, crisp, refreshing, not-quite pale ale. #9 is really impossible to describe because there's never been anything else quite like it.

Bottle poured into a pilsner glass

Orange golden amber with decent carbonation and slight white foam cap

Citrus and orange hop aroma dominates

Nice , clean citrus hop with clean finish. no bitter aftertaste. Light to light medium mouthfeel. Good beer with a pleasant taste. Repeat ale but not a first choice, perhaps a third our fourth selection.
