12 oz can, 4/27/15, poured into a pint glass.

A - Golden orange, clear, with a one finger head, that moves to a thin lace. Good retention.

S - Citrus, orange, mango. Striking aroma.

T - Follows the nose, with some grassy piney hops. Malts lend a bubble gum sweetness.

M - Carbonation is medium, heft is good, finishes clean.

O - Finally came across this, and was not dissapointed. Not as dated as the Double Jack (9 months) that I purchased at the same time, so it has more hops semblance. Recommended.

A greatly satisfying beer with a hoppy aroma and a tasteful finish of smooth and refreshing hops. A must have and a great beer for a summer day.
