Opaque pale yellow, nearing tan, with a convex fluffy soft dome settling to a thick persistent blanket slightly ridged at the edge leaving a tall curtain of coral lace.

Smell is delicately cannabic, resiny and minty with citrus, biscuit dough and lemon meringue pie.

Taste is spicily dank and citrusy with toasted cracker and a softly bitter pine.

The light body is fortified with a perfectly substantial, soft carbonation, finishing just chewy dry, and infinitely crushable.

On tap, 12oz tulip glass.

Washed orange color, cloudy. 2F of froth, retains well with heavy lacing.

Citrus hop aroma with light malts and a note of pine.

Citrus hop flavor, grapefruit with a few granules of sugar. Slightly piney.

Juicy light body with crisp feel and hop tang.

Hoppy and flavorful with manageable Abv generally appeals to me and this fits.

On tap at The Blackback Pub, Waterbury, VT. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a slim finger’s worth of a bar pour’s kind of head. Adequate lacing sticks and then slides after quick dissipation of the head. The smell had a sweet orange juice bitterness with subtle zest, extra citrus, light grassy, somewhat grapefruit pulp and rind blending for full effect. The taste was a balanced bitter to sweet citrus / grapefruit bitter rind. Citrus full in effect in the aftertaste and bitter finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs smooth and somewhat light. Overall, I liked this one. Would definitely have again.
