Hazy orange-gold color with 1 finger head poured into tulip glass. Foamy head hangs around a bit leaving a fair amount of lacing on glass. Fruity and hoppy on the nose. Taste a bitter orange and grapefruit flavor smoothed by the oats while drinking but has a lingering bitterness in the finish. Fairly easy to drink and enjoyable beer.

The clearly white head compliments the beers haze. Lightly bitter, lightly fruity, this beer is hoppy enough to fill your pallet, yet flows freely into your mouth.

12 oz. Bottle

A lively, slightly hazy white golden color. A fine white foam is airy but rocky with nice lace and minimal covering. Nice sticky lace and plenty of foam cover.

The aroma has a peppery orange peel, herbal sourness, earthy grains and golden wheat and tangy fruit mix. A very earthy toned citrusy nose. Very nice!!!


A very, very clean and crisp mouthfeel and flavor. Light but slightly honey sweet, grainy and earthy malt complexity that simply rocks. The hops come across much like the aroma, citrus fruits with black pepper, crisp And dry toned wheat and grains, herbal and zippy .....a very unique and interesting hop flavor. Tge balance of both worlds is outta sight!! Very light, jazzy and crispy feel and overall effect. Excellent complexity of both the malt and hop aspects.

A big wow.
