Can, hazy and orange pour. Foamy big bubbled head settles fast, minimal lacing.

Aroma is hint of citrus, malt sweetness and touch of earthy pine. All relatively faint.

Flavor is sweet malts, bitterness, some earthy hops and just a little bit of citrus.

Moderate carbonation and lighter side of medium body.

OK overall, nothing stands out, but crisp and fairly easy drinking.

This is a very "whatever" kind of beer. I'd never bother getting it again. Frankly, Evil Twin has disappointed me far more than it has made me say "mmm...beer."

12oz can

A — Pours a yellowy hued amber color into the glass. Nearly white head appears and leaves behind some consistent lace.

S — Smell is quite hoppy for the style, but not overly sweet, good bit of biscuity malts and some bitter hops.

T — Tastes of fresh hops and malts, without one really overpowering the other, really good balance, but not overly complex.

M — Medium bodied, ample carbonation rounds things out.

O — Good overall, just fairly one dimensional, which is OK I suppose.
