Appearance - Good looking apa here. Pours a foggy deep golden amber color 3 fingers of foamy off white head and lively carbonation replenishing that head very well. almost couldn't ask for more.

Aroma - Aroma's of grapefruit, pineapple lemon rind and a hint of orange up front, followed closely by some sweet caramel malt and strong bready malt on the back end.

Taste - Grapefruit and orange and pineapple head up this beers flavor profile and are followed by salted caramel and some cracker malt on the back end. The malt and hops are balanced beautifully here. This beer really comes together.

Feel - Medium bodied and spritzy with a very crisp finish. Not bad for this style.

Overall - This was my first beer from this brewery or the state of Louisiana and I've gotta say I'm pretty impressed. I would love to try an IPA from them as this was superbly balanaced and drtinks super easy. Definitely worth the try!

Cloudy orange/apricot colored pour with a white one-finger head. Mild malty aroma. Big flavor with a nice balance of bready malt and herbal and spicy hops. Medium bodied. Finishes with some biscuit and spicy hop flavor.
