Poured into a Palm tulip.

Pours hazy orange golden with a tinge of copper. Bright white head is minimal, maybe a finger in the glass, but lingers nicely throughout the drink. Nose is definitively sweet citrus, light, but flavorful.

Taste is very similar to the nose with floral hoppiness, with a nice sweetness that balances well with the citrus and hops. Great balance of bitter and sweet. Nice medium mouthfeel, a little carbonation. Definitely get a bite of alcohol. Overall a really good beer.

Thanks to ActonBrewer for this one! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into CCB pint glass.

A: Pours a somewhat dark copper that is very hazy. Small white head and very little visible carbonation.

S: Floral, citrus, melon and pine hops with a light malt aroma in the background.

T: Follows the nose, but it really doesn't follow through with the promise. The sweet malt dominates, and the hop character is pine bitterness primarily. The flavor seems a little excessively boozy as well.

M: Medium body, sticky mouthfeel, carbonation seems just a notch too low. Alcohol is noticeable.

O: Good, not great. I wish it had tasted as good as it smelled. I wouldn't seek another one out, but am glad to have tried it.
