Straight across the board this one is pretty darn good. Orange-ish and a little hazy in the glass with a good head. Piney and a little bit citrusy in the aroma and taste. Malt backbone is clearly there, but the hops still have room to shine and there's no major conflict.

So far I haven't found a single beer from Upslope that doesn't make the grade; every one I've tried has been tasty beer. I expect that trend will continue with each new beer I try from this brewery.

12 oz. Can

Pours a nice yellowish color, pretty nice carbonation, with a nice small thick/creamy off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with some citrus. The taste is hoppy, malty, citrusy. Medium body, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a tasty brew.
