From the can, it pours a lightly hazy amber with a modest head, slowly diminishing as you drinki it and leaving lacing. In the nose, it has a bit of citrus and malt. In the mouth, the same. Sessionable!

On tap at Hailey’s and chosen to accompany my breakfast of spicy corned beef hash and an egg over easy. Hops and sweet malt in a well balanced combination. At 5.6%, a decent session beer that would probably complement any food except dessert. A nice change from my usual breakfast beverage—Nestle’s Quik.

12 oz can into chalice. Dated 8/30/18.
Look is semi-clear dark golden, almost reddish. Smell is light yeast and hops followed by sweet malt. Taste follows, very balanced. Feel is light. Overall a nice representation of the style.

Decent drinkable pale ale. First time trying this brewery. Light hops on the nose. Balanced by soft malts. Highly crushable. Bottled from Total in Norwalk CT.

Transparent seared orange with white frothy head. Aroma of lemon skin, grass, spicy hops, citrus, and breadiness. Tastes of breadiness, lemon skin, grass, spicy hops, citrus. Hefty body with medium carbonation.

It's o.k. Drinkable but nothing special. Wouldn't buy it again. It's a lovely orange in the glass. Can barely discern the hops and it just isn't interesting though it isn't bad. I do regret having purchased a 12 pack because frankly, I"m not sure it's worth the calories.
