The aroma has a great tropical fruit aroma from the Citra.

The flavor has citrus peel, a light leafy bitterness on the back. The beer is very clean from the rice. A hoppy, clean, and very easy drinking brew.

On tap for The Bruery Sucreversary held at The Phoenix Club in Anaheim, CA.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, rice, fruit, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, rice, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

I’m starting to see this in more and more places. Pours a thin gold color with pale foaming. There’s a light, interesting aroma to it. The yuzu, perhaps? It’s crisp and sharply flavored, with what I imagine is a bit of rice mixing with the yuzu. Intensely dry. Exceeded my expectations and worth seeking out again.
