Appearance: Murky gold and orange with decent foam and lacing and lots of carbonation.

Smell: Citrus, pine, citrus, wheat, and citrus.

Taste: Wheat, orange, spice, citrus.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and creamy, with a bitter hop finish.

The Verdict: Good beer. This is a mild blonde brew with plenty of citra hops. Well balanced with a nice citrus flavor. Bonus: I picked it up from BevMo at a great price!

Poured from the 330mL bottle into a pint glass.

The beer is a bright gold with just a slight hint of orange in there. A Bit hazy but with plenty of carbonation visible. Head is pure white, creamy, and sticks around for a really long time, just becoming slightly fizzier over time.

S: Overwhelmingly citrus. Orange peel especially, with hints of lemon and grapefruit in there as well. Some balancing bready malt in the back, but overall this is alike a big lemon tart or lemon cake. Actually pretty refreshing.

T: Starts off slightly sweet with a nice balance, but then takes a more hoppy turn. Finishes slightly bitter and drying with lots of citrus peel character.

Overal this beer is OK. Not something I'd actively seek out again but not something I'd be disappointed in seeing again either.
