Hazy yellow to orange, half in head
Piney, malty smell. Spicy, citrusy
Honey, melon, pear, pine. Not as citrusy as the nose
Lightly carbonated, smooth feel
A refreshing and interesting beer, perfect for summer. Sweet but not in a floral/citrus way, more in a woody melon-y way

Pours a hazy, pale, orange with a thin, white head and good carbonation. Smells of wonderful, tropical hops. Tastes of tropical hp forward. The bitter hop resonates, which creates more emphasis on the hop. This is the way I like it. Candied fruit taste is also present. A very refreshing APA!
