Served in a Lagunitas mason jar at Bigby's Pour House.

Apparently, we're already up to 16... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunrise amber topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises mild grapefruit zest, light flowers, very light honey, and light biscuit. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a touch of light watermelon here or there (or maybe that was just my imagination running away with me (without copyright issues with the Temptations)). The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a nice little pale ale, nothing special, but something I could easily drink several jars of while I'm here.

The beer comes in a light golden color.

The aroma has a huge peachy hop with tropical fruit, pineapple, just juicy and a great aroma.

The flavor follows with citrus and tropical fruits and clean biscuit finish. The beer is quite drinkable though not too much on the bitterness.

A decent pale ale.

On tap at Westover Beer Garden. Poured into a plastic solo cup.

Interesting but rather fruity and definitely the wrong type of fruitiness for me. I might say that this beer is a hopped up version of a Shock Top.

A - Pours a clear pale golden color with a small white head (low head probably due to the bartenders pour).

S - Slightly sweet, light fruit and a tiny bit of piney resin.

T - Pale malts, orange and some bitterness (bitterness is overwhelmed by the orange so hard to further describe, at least for me).

MF - Light body, dry finish.
