Cloudy orange with an orange aroma. Taste is not good for a blonde. It's an IPA. It's pale and bitter which angers me a bit; I was mislead. The taste actually isn't bad but it's not a blonde.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a low ball style glass. Did not find any dating on the bottle.

Appearance is a muddled orange with a very thin amount of head that left no lacing in the glass. Unfiltered cloudy appearance.

Smells of grapefruit and orange.

Tastes almost like drinking a mimosa. Really light and easy on the palate.

Overall it's a fairly decent ale, nothing spectacular. It's a good beer to have on a hot day.
