look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

on tap at Mekong in Richmond. into a snifter.

pours a cloudy copper with a slight head. smell is big and hoppy, surprising for the style. taste is bitter, hoppy and drinkable. not the best flavor like you'd find in an IPA though. easy drinking. body is a bit fuller than expected as well.

overall a good beer . wouldn't think this was so low in ABV from the taste. enjoyable.

No head really on a cloudy golden copper body with little lacing. Aroma of orange peel, pineapple, resins, pale malts and even some coriander. Flavors include grapefruit and orange peel mildly tart citrus, herbal hops, hint of wood, pale malts and club soda. Medium body and light to moderate carbonation. Very drinkable, can be enjoyed in a hot day for sure. Not as complex as other sessions but is hoppy enough without being to full bodied.
