Appearance: Pours a light caramel brown with orangish hues…sort of a hazy middle, it’s color is dense and mildly transparent…a pinky finger of off white head forms and remains…head does thin a bit, but livens up with a couple of swirls…this is a good lookin’ brew…(4/5)

Smell: Tons of fresh citrus hops aroma, with orange, mango and pineapple bursting right away…I could smell all that citrus as I was pouring it…sweetish caramel malts balance things out a bit, but this is an inviting citrus hop bomb…there is a touch of piney resin as well…very lively and fresh…(4/5)

Taste: Yum! Whole cone, citrus hops flavor up front…very fresh and flavorful…orange, tangerine, pineapple and mango all apparent…malts are sweet, caramel and lightly pale…flavor isn’t explosive, rather subtle and clean…there isn’t too much hops bite or bitterness, though both are present...it’s just a simple, easy drinking flavor that stands out without being overly complicated…much like the nose, there’s a touch of piney resin showing late and becomes more apparent the more I drink…very well balanced…(4/5)

Mouthfeel: Light body with medium carbonation…brew fluffs up bringing orange/tangerine bitterness to the palate…very fresh, light, crisp and clean…finishes with light citrus bitterness, but it’s very soft and has more flavor than bitterness bite…(4/5)

Overall: This is a solid brew, consider it a hopped up pale ale…the flavor is very fresh and well balanced…there is a noticeable lack of bitterness and bite for all the hops, which is nice and makes this a more sessioinable brew than a typical IPA is…it comes in 4-packs and carries a slightly heavy price tag, but it’s worth it for a true beer aficionado or hop head…I’ve only had two O’so Brewing Company’s brews, both hops heavy and both very tasty…if you see this come around or in a friend’s fridge, I recommend grabbing some for yourself…a very good brew, perfect for watching your Maize and Blue whoop up on Syracuse…(4/5)
