Thanks to Orthodoxkardia.

12oz bottle. Pours a translucent orange with very little head. Some lacing. The aroma is floral and spicy hops, malt, and some light citrus. The taste is bready malts followed by some spicy and floral hops. Light grapefruit and tangerine. Floral and spicy hops at the finish. Medium bodied. Nothing stands out too much with this one, but its not a bad beer by any means. Overall, decent but I wouldn't be heartbroken if I never had it again.

Pours a crystal clear orange amber with a thick firm head. Initially outstanding looking but head fades rather fast. Still, good looking.

Nose is muted fresh pineapple with lemon mousse tones. Pleasant and true to style but a little diluted in assertiveness.

Mouthfeel is medium/light in that there is a light diluted character again. Hints of "watered down" mouthfeel but not bad; still somewhat inviting.

Taste is light diluted bitter pine. Somewhat true to style but flavors are a bit simple and thin.

Finish is a long lasting dull pine bitter.

This is not bad beer; it is just not exceptional either. A bit more of a bright character and this could have some real potential to appeal.
