Quite hazy, even cloudy in the tumbler. This looks like an orange-tinted Hefeweizen with a modest head and some coarse bubbles along the glass. The brewer claims this is made with Citra hops, which I have liked better in other beers, though the bitterness is not so unpleasant. Overall this has plenty of acidic character, but the malt keeps it somewhat in check. The sharpness cuts through the murky, herbal hop flavors.

A hop tea with plenty of brisk tannins plus apple butter fruitiness. Sweet, fruity, powerful-- not much for savory sipping, but just the ticket for relaxing after a road-trip day. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Lee's Discount Liquor in Mesquite, Nevada.

Crispier than the apple that Eve took a bite out of in the Garden Of Eden; spunkier than a Russian satellite orbiting the earth... Raul is doing this well and good. It can't bat in the '27 Yankees line up, but it would do a good job hitting behind Mickey Mantle.

Bomb ass Beer!! Recommended by Joe at Walnut Liquorette! He was out of Pliny, Citra, and Alpine beers so he thought I should try this one and he was right!!
Sunset orange in color my favorite. Pine pineapple, mango, citrus and sweet malt aroma!!
I don't know their distribution but if you see it buy a bottle! This is extremely underrated and if more people knew about this it was most likely be in ba's top 50 dipa's.
