On tap at Belmont Station.

Light amber with a dense off white head, this looks solid. The nose is very, very fruity and juicy, with mango, peach, honey, orange juice, mandarins, a lovely hop melange. There's a cooked cereal character that is a little off putting, though.

The palate opens quite sweet with honey and moderate bitterness. Plenty hoppy with mango, peach, nectarine, grapes , some of which has a mildly preserved fruit character. The mid palate is a blend of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Sweetish on the finish, this beer has a mild mineral character that clashes with the fruity hop character. Medium in body with moderate carbonation, this is decent.

Thanks to Wowcoolman/AndrewK/drewone for sharing this one at GRG1313's tasting.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and floral hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice citrus forward hop presence all around.
