Nice clear orange color. Smells very "fresh". Has a loud grapefruit flavor that is very assertive and lingers in a good way. Very refreshing and makes you want to keep drinking it. Like it a lot.

Pours to a thick, lasting head, orange more so than gold in color, hoppy aroma, smooth downward quench, very nice.

Poured fro a can into a pint glass which resulted in a strong, well defined head that was slow to dissipate, but left a nice lacing behind. Cloudy, golden and good bubbling below the head. The aroma was very understated and muted, which gave no indication of what the beer offered. The flavor was bright, direct and had equal measures of bitter and citrus. No noticeable aftertaste, and was very refreshing drink after drink, from first drink to last, very consistent. Wonderful beer.

Pours light grain-gold with 2 fingers of head and a surprising amount of lacing.

Hops come through stronger than a typical pale ale, which seems to be Karbach's style. Distinct notes of grapefruit, citrus, honey and biscuit are present, but a little washed out by the prominence of sweet pine at the back. Medium body and carbonation stick around even if you have to run a few mid-drink errands, which is welcome for such a casual-type beer.
