Best by date of 09/13/15

Appearance - Pours hazy and golden in color with a white, finger width head. Sub-par retention, quickly results in a thin, broken layer of suds across the surface.

Smell - Floral and citrus hop notes with a caramel malt undertone.

Taste - Taste follows the nose, mostly. Hoppy notes are predominant with floral character upfront and complimented by some citrus zing. Mild sweet honey notes. Finish hits on some grassy, waxy bitterness and a touch of bread and caramel.

Mouthfeel - Light in body with low carbonation. Frankly, feels a bit flat, weak and watery.

Overall - One of those rare beers I preferred out of the bottle before reviewing it out of the glass. Would've given it like an 85-88 rating based on the couple of bottles I drank yesterday. Out of the glass it's pretty weak.

12 oz bottle poured into an IPA glass, best by 10/08/15.

A - Semi cloudy golden orange with yellow accents. One finger head that moves to a thin creamy lace.

S - Grapefruit, biscuits, some faint tropical fruit/mango notes.

T - More bready and malt forward than the nose. Slightly grassy. Getting some peppery notes mid to late swig.

M - Carbonation is medium low, heft is right in the middle of the spectrum.

O - Don't see this that often down here, so I picked up a single to give it a try. For the level of ABV and being session-able, it's a good option. It's well made and refreshing. Ultimately, the only downside is that the taste seems to be missing something, so it's a trade off. Give it a go.
