look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a super cloudy straw/golden light yellow with a finger of dense near white head. A complete thin layer remains 10 minutes later, great retention. Fantastic lacing

S - Lots of sweet bitter grainy citrus, lemon, maybe a hint of spice. Smells really nice.

T - Definitely not a palate wrecker but a nice mild dry bitterness up front, citrus is much less present than expected based on the aroma, very grainy. Aftertaste is a bit weak, grainy, slightly bitter and yeasty.

M - Definitely light bodied, very well carbonated, super refreshing.

O - For what its worth this has probably been sitting in my fridge for 2 months, although there is no bottled date to be found. I've had this in the past and feel like i may have enjoyed the taste a bit more. I will definitely re-review but it doesnt taste skunked, just not quite as good as i recall. Still enjoyable, my lady and her friends definitely enjoy it, and you could certainly do much much worse.

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – Served a lightly hazed golden yellow color with a one finger white head. The head fades over a moderate level of time leaving quite a nice level of lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma was overall very light and consisted mainly of a citrus hop smell. Mixed with this smell were some notes of pine as well as a bit of a malty aroma.

Taste – The taste begins with a moderately bready flavor with sweet orange and some bitter grapefruit upfront. As the taste advances some lighter fruit flavors (peach and pear) come to the tongue, sweetening the flavor and lessening the strength of the grapefruit citrus hop taste. Soon however more hop flavors some to the tongue. The grapefruit resurges in strength with a grassy hop flavor coming to the tongue as well. In combination, at the end of the taste, all the flavors combined leave a bitter very light bready flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the brew is on the thinner side (as expected for an only 4.5 % abv) with a carbonation level that is a tad on the higher side. Both are very nice for the session style of the brew and keep the it very easy drinking even thought there is a bit of a bitter bite at the end of the taste.

Overall – A good easy drinking session with a decent level of hop flavor and a bit of a bitter bite.
