On tap at Oxbow in Portland. Hazy pale yellow. Creamy white head. Sweet tropical hop aroma. Like a mango candy. Light wheat and faint yeastiness. Tastes hoppy up front. Less sweet that I expected. Tropical up front, then more citrusy. Light pale malt and wheat. Creamy body with soft carbonation. Really nice, simple, and drinkable.

Pours a hazy yellow color with a small pure white head. No retention whatsoever but some OK lacing. Kind of looks like lemonade.

The aroma has a good amount of tart citrus, as well as barnyard funk and spicy pepper.

The flavor follows the nose but adds a nice doughy malt character. A bit more grassy flavors than the aroma led on.

The mouth is light bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp and refreshing. Slight hoppy bitterness lingers on the back end.

Overall a good beer that isn't relatively complex but still brings some great flavors. Very drinkable.
