Pours out a honey color with an off-white head that dissipates rather quickly. Lacing is non-existent.
There are some light tropical hops notes in the nose. Sweet orange comes to mind. Semi bitter with grains.
Taste like bitter tropical fruits. Not overpowering at all. It has a nice lemon zest in the finish that lingers a bit.
The mouthfeel is pretty damn smooth with some pleasant carbonation. It's an easy drinker.

I usually prefer an IPA and stumbled upon this on tap last night. I think the smell is delicious and the taste fabulous. I just ordered a case of it today and I hope that the bottled beer tastes as good as the tap beer does.
I'm surprised that I haven't heard of it before now. Well, I'll count my blessings!

Poured from tap into 16oz mug at Zamas in Smyrna. Poured brownish yellow in light. At times looking like a clear Pilsner or Lager. Beer was flat with no carbonation likely no fault of the beer itself. Tried to see through that with the above ratings.

This beer pours a clear golden color. Minimal head when poured from the tap. What is there is white, and minimal lacing on the glass.
Slight citrus nose. Very slight. Not much else.
Taste slight malt, a bit more hop. Fairly well balanced between the 2.
Feel is fairly light, but not watery.
Easy drinking overall.
