one of the first not wild beers i have had from these guys, and its very well done, a little hazy and quite gentle in terms of mouthfeel, sort of a regional hybrid between the east and west coast styles, which i suppose makes sense given they are in the center of the country. good head on this, whitewashed orange in color, and a pungent hop aroma that shows the CTZ hops pretty prominently, grapefruit zest and flesh, and a little something lighter in the citrus family, tangerine perhaps. the flavor is similar to the nose, there is a little yeast here still which i like, and a little of the swirling hop oils, very west coast there, but its also somewhat delicate for what it is, and drinks a little easier than many of its peers with only a moderate bitterness on the back end and some cool bright fruits that come on late, mango and pear are subtle but present for me, through the heavy grapefruit. very well rounded, seemingly sort of old school, i liked this one a lot. i like all the beers i have had from these guys, not sure how they are still flying under the radar...

Very hazy bright amber color. Fairly thin white foamy head that left some nice laces. Big orange and grassy aroma. The taste was orange at first, fading to an earthy, herbal, pleasant bitterness. Subtle malty background - bready and not sweet. Very nice.

From a 750 ml bottle, this is an effervescent brew, golden in color, and topped with a thick, long-lasting and dense head. The aroma is hoppy...spicy and grapefruit, and wet leaves. Earthy. Some malt. The taste is bitter, balanced (if not slightly tilted sweet). Long and hoppy finish. Great brew.
