On draft at Zeitgeist, San Francisco.
Dark hazy amber with off white film.
Orange rind and caramel nose.
Toffee backbone then lots of Citra lemon.
Some chew, some oil, very nearly medium.

A little too much malty tang and a bit too full for an APA. But a good dose of hops.

This pours a malty orange-gold color with a thin layer of light foam. There’s a malt sweetness on the aroma, like candied orange and caramel, with a mellow, subdued hop profile. The flavor is not bitter, rather it is smooth and rounded, with a candied citrus fruit characteristic to the hops. Well rounded, easy drinking, and the low abv makes it oh so sessionable.

Piney, straw, sweet light citrus. Tastes stronger than it is. Musty aftertaste.
