A hazy copper color and some lacing. A hoppy aroma of citrus. Hops, citrus, its crisp some fruit and an unpleasant lemon with some bitterness and high carbonation. Its got to much going on to make it come together nicely. I stated before I drank it that It would not have been my pick based on the label and honestly that design carried over into the brew.

A: Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a one finger soapy tan head. Leaves patches of lace.

S: Big citrus hop aroma off the pour. Grapefruit and orange rind. Smell turns more earthy with a bit o herbal hops and mint as it warms.

T: A bit of a light hop kick right away with some faint lemon and tangerine. Lots of bready malts come in soon after. Some caramel malt, light aspirin and some lemon zest. Finish brings some. Citric resin and grain. Mouthfeel is really light. Definitely a bit of a gateway beer for people who don't think they like hops.

Appearance - Pours the weirdest color I've ever seen.. lol. It's like a murky yellowish-orange brown color with a 2 inch, soapy head that lasts for a few minutes. Leaves a very thick lacing.

Smell - Has a very strong bitter funk to it.. with lighter tones of berries (or some similar fruit)

Taste - It has your average pale ale taste with the added caramel and toffee. Bitter, earthy malts, and a very light undertone of some type of fruit..?

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied wit high carbonation.

Overall - I don't know if it's because this is dry-hopped or just because of the ingredients, but it has a very weird funk and feel to it that I don't like.
