Odor: Heavy spices, Orange peel and a sweet yeast

Pour: light Milky orange, Unfiltered, No head, light lace. poured in a challis glass

Taste: Creamy Pepper start which changes to a citrus floral blend. Aftertaste of coriander and nutmeg. No bitterness.

This is one of those beers that I will come back to on many occasions. Love this beer. Almost like a citrus cider. Wish it came in 6 or 12 packs.

Deep golden color.

Hint of apple in the scent. Traditional beer smell, in a good way.

Yeast comes through on the first sip. Follows with a balanced spiciness that is easily drinkable.

High carbonation that tingles all the way down.

Good beer that we'll be trying again.

A: Amber/orange with a white head.

S: Mango, orange, sweet fruit, maybe peach and/or passionfruit, also some floral notes in the nose.

T: Pretty floral and malty, some grass and citrus as well.

M: Medium bodied, smooth and refreshing.

O: Not spectacular, but very good. I'd recommend trying it, just as I'd recommend trying anything from North Coast. They're an excellent brewery.

I know what I like and thus is one I like. Tasted great with the hot wings we had before the Super Bowl. Thus is one I buy when I can find it. Can't go wrong with this beer. I am not into all the categories but just know when I like a beer. This just tastes good.

A- Crystal clear golden straw color. Looks a lot like apple juice. Constant streaming carbonation and small particles floating around. Very nice trailing and lacing.

S- Bread, banana, pear, apple, fresh hops, some spice, a little orange, and coriander.

T- Follows the nose pretty closely. Yeast, pear, over-ripened apple, spices, and slight grape up front. Banana makes a big appearance mid way. Nice earthy hops, peppery spice, coriander, and orange rind mingles around in the finish.

M- Medium body. Lightly creamy with crisp carbonation. Drying.

O- Very nice balance and complexity in this big fruity beer. Flavors all over the map. I'm not the biggest fan of the style, but I immediately considered going out to buy a six pack after I was finished.
