16 oz can was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a slightly hazy pale yellow orange color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Citrus, stone fruit, lemon, tangerine, grapefruit, some pine, and a little tropical hops followed by biscuity, toasted, caramel, and pale malts.

Taste: This beer gets tastier and better with every sip. Very enjoyable, delicious, and tasty. Grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, pine, lemon, stone fruit, and a little tropical hops followed by caramel, pale, bready, biscuity, and toasted malts. Light tingly bitterness and a little chewy.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light bodied, light lingering bitterness, slightly chewy, sessionable, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Second night in s tow having this beer. Definitely growing on me and looking forward to the rest of the Pseudo Sues in my fridge now.

16 ounce slammer into an oversized tulip.

I was expecting a NE haze bomb for some reason and this is not that. Great transparency through the coppery-colored body. Good frothy head with good signs of persistence and lacing. Radiant carbonation. 5

Hugely fruity aroma. Tropical notes like so many different pales and IPAs I've had recently. Perhaps I'll get tired of this, but at the moment, I"m loving it. Resin and pine stand out as well. A light and biscuity malt presence shows and seems perfect to complement the fruit. 4.25

Flavor is light, gentle, tame but also satisfying. Still very fruity and showing mango and papaya notes. Biscuity light malt to fill things out. Finishes with light earthy notes and black tea very faintly. 4.25

Feel-wise this does a great job of providing some fullness in body and still drinking lightly and easily. Bitterness is there but tame. Dry finish but not too dry. Bubbly carbonation up front that mellows out by the finish. Very nice. 4.5

This is good. Veddy good.
