Part of a sampler at the brewery - it has a 5.9% ABV and poured a very light yellow/pale color. The smell was mainly of hops and spice, but the taste contained hints of spice (maybe coriander?) and a very strong orange/tangerine flavor. The aftertaste was strongly of wheat and bitter hops.

Off the tap at their Southside location this beer was a bleached yellow color with a thin white head. Not much to be said for retention but some scattered lacing. The aromas were also faded, subtle hops and lemon zest. The flavors were balanced but rather non-descript; I got hops and some general dry grains at first followed by hints of sweetness and a tangy wheat finish. The finish was a little off and the honey never really shined. The body was light and the carbonation average so in general I felt this one was designed to help quench the thirst of tourists who just couldn't handle the New Mexican Chile heat.
