Pours a hazed straw color with a thumb of pearl colored head. Good head retention & lacing

S: Grassy, a little citrus, fades as it warms

T: Orange juice, light breadyness, just a little tangerine up front. Pomelo, dryness, & little lemon as this warms. Finishes citrussy, a little dry, with just a little tartness

MF: Medium body, fairly firm carbonation, nice balance

Drinks easy, good take on the style

Can fresh from the brewery. Nice lemony scent and taste. Very mild bitterness in the front with a good amount of lemon
and citrus freshness in the taste. Very smooth and drinkable.

The beer smacks of herbaceous green hops, orange, possibly Galaxy juicy sorbet flavors, mango. Earthy quality in middle along with doughy malts and a medium bitterness.

12oz can. Pours a hazy grayish pale lime color with 2 inches of frothy head. Very little lacing. Melon, lemon, lime, tangerine and some floral notes in the nose. The taste is melon, blueberries, lime and tangerine. Good deal of floral hops as well as some pine towards the finish. Toasted bread crusts. Floral, slightly soapy finish. Dry. Lots of carbonation.
