My go to when at local bars with limited menus.

Appears a see through golden orange color with a big, white head that dissipates quickly.

Smells hoppy with some grapefruit and pine, orange zets, slight bitterness in the nose.

Taste is hoppy and sweet - well balanced.

Overall a staple - probably one of the beers I have consumed the most.

Had this on tap at the Burlington Maritime Festival Umphrees McGee concert. Served in a 12 oz clear plastic cup. A clear copper-yellow with a thin white head. Mostly malt in the nose....not a hop bomb at all. Taste was better than I expected after the lack of hop aroma. Caramel malt sweetness with a slightly bitter backbone...although lacking significant hop flavor. Nice refreshing beer. Perfect for the occasion as enjoyed by the horde.
