Awesome beer ! It does not get better this this one!

Appearance:: a light golden color with a creamy two finger white head, which remained through and left great lacing. '

Smell: It was out of this world! It had oanges, floral notes and hops

Taste: Citric hops were perfectly balanced caramel malt presence. A very well rounded beer. Goes down smooth!

Mouthfeel: outstanding! It was nice and crisp and had a good smoothness and creaminess.

This beer is great of session beer you will ever find. It was wonderful balance, with some nice hop presence without being too bitter

Hands down, this is by far one of the best beers I have ever had. Unlike most Pale ales, this beer has the clean, crisp feel and appearance of a lager, the hoppiness of a mild IPA, and the most incredible hoppy aroma you will get from a bottled beer. Along with the intense sweet, floral aroma, the dry hopped finish creates a superbly delicious dry aftertaste. Besides the hops, the beer is low in maltiness, yet has a nice light bready flavor. The low 4.9% alcohol content will allow you to enjoy more than one on a work night.
