Pours cloudy cloudy orange. Medium-sized head. Smells like pine and loads of tropical citrus. Taste is smooth and delicious, plenty of bitterness and citra. Goes down way too easy. Creamy and smooth with a dry pleasant finish. This beer was everything I was hoping for.

An odd opaque color but flavor was full of citrus and low on bitterness which was a nice surprise.

On tap at farmhouse on a few occassions. Floral boozy flavor. Seemed light on the malt, heavy on the piney, tropical, spicy flavors. The aftertaste was minimal, little bit of lemon or lime. Nice and dry.
