look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - looks like a beer. Poured aggressive into a snifter yielded a full 2.5 finger head. Lacing was fantastic til the end.

S - good but not outstanding. Seem to pick up a little more depth from the centennial two hearted. But still pick up nice citrus and earthy notes from pour to finish.

T - delicious easy drinking. Nicely balanced malty backbone with bitterness that doesn't linger long.

M - smooth and very creamy just the right amount of carbonation. Really great.

O - will revisiti this review after I've had a few more. Maybe worthy of slightly higher score. As I wrote this feeling like I want another.

A - Dark orange, amber color, with a finger of white fizzy head, medium lacing.
S - Big pine and citrus, very classic west coast style, some caramel malts, orange juice.
T - Well balanced, not overly bitter, a little grassy, medium pine, citrus zest and a sweeter caramel orange malt.
M - A little sticky sweet, and chewy, but medium.
O - This is best fresh on tap, in bottles and cans its decent but doesnt compare. Still this is a solid year round offering
