This is my first review so forgive me for my lack of knowledge and verbiage ( new to good beer).

Very smooth taste with a crisp citrus flavors. Nice hint of orange color. My personal favorite. Just enough hops with a sweet caramel twist to it. It is light in the mouth. Wonderful beer for a hot summer day sitting on the porch.

On tap at the Dark Lord Day. Sampled before my pallet got eviscerated and my brain turned to jelly.

Notes:
Nice pour. Hazy yellow with a perfect, wispy white head like whipped cream. Smells of strong citrus hops--orange, grapefruit, and pineapple. Tastes very fresh, very high alpha, lots and lots of delicious fruit. Very hop-heavy, good yeast burst at the end to balance it out somewhat.

I must have liked it an awful lot to have bothered to review it. Nothing genre-defining, but a damn good example of its style.
