4.07/5  rDev +10%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

poured from 32 oz. half growler into tulip (half growler filled Saturday, Aug. 26, 2017, at Harvey Washbangers in Hurricane Harvey-induced downpour)

L: murky gold, about as dark as gold can get without adding amber, like a dull light bronze; pushes up late-percolating creamy head of foam about 3/4 to a full inch tall; keeps thick collar and most of a skin; light sticking, no lacing

S: hoppy ... green hops, grassy, a little lime ... citrus note is strong, grapefruit ... yes, as it warms, more and more grapefruit; biscuit malt under the thick layer of hops, very subtle

T: mix of grapefruit, generic citrus hop flavor with a more pronounced biscuit malt flavor, almost bready malt; hops are juicy and only lightly bitter and are really smoothed out by that malt sweetness; bitterness shows up in aftertaste, lingering grapefruit peel, almost earthy

F: ale soft, almost slick, feels a bit light but there's enough carbonation to add a piece of heft to it; not sure if it lost a lot of carbonation overnight in the half growler, but ... well ... how shall we say? it's definitely an ale, not a lager (as it should be, no?)

O: lovely little hoppy beer, slightly soft mouthfeel but I could see some finding its velvety smoothness perfect; the grapefruit notes are spot on, and the light malt backbone is just enough to add a little sweetness

Dark gold (6+) draft pour with no cap and no lace; good clarity. Pineapples aroma. Pineapples and light hop flavors. Medium lite mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Overall, a light, juicy, tropical fruit linger That is quite enjoyable.

It looked just fine, a nice orangely color with a little bit of white head. It had a decent smell to it as well, not strong like an IPA but not bad. I was not crazy about the taste, I mean it was okay but I might have well have been drinking a Budweiser or other regular ol' commercial american beer as it tasted rather similar to me. not bad at all, just nothing out of the ordinary.
