16oz can, served in a snifter. Slightly cloudy, unfiltered golden orange body, one finger white head, good retention, medium collar, bits of lacing. Smell is orange pulp, a bit of grapefruit, light grain, slightly leafy. Flavour is straightforward, with pulp, touch of grapefruit. Slightly herbal, almost perhaps floral bitterness on the backend. Mild grainy sweetness. The finish is a bit slick, which I figure is from the honey, nicely done. Medium-lighter body, not overwhelmingly sweet or bitter in any way, easy to drink.

Looks like weak grapefruit juice with mild lacing. Smell is orange juice and mildly bitter hops. Taste is subtle, simple hops and orange juice. Smooth sipper, well balanced.

16oz, canned on 03/26/18. Pours lighter than expected: pale straw-holden with haze and a fluffy white head. Bold and juicy aroma of orange, mango, pineapple, and sweet honey-like grain. Nice and juicy in flavor with notes of mango, passion fruit, orange, grapefruit, honey and light caramel. Light-to-medium body, ample carbonation, finishing juicy and semi-bitter. I'm not finding the orange to be overbearing at all and think it's utilized well here. This was nice and refreshing after a long day at work.

16oz can poured into a pint glass looks an orange tinged gold, slightly cloudy body supporting a 3/4in cap of mixed bubbles. A 1/16in cap is sustained throughout and moderate continental lacing is left behind.

Orange aroma is the winner here. From the moment the can is opened until the glass is empty, a flowery billowing aroma of lovely orange citrus juice entices the nose.

Flavor matches. The orange is strong, but not cloyingly sweet. I taste a hint of honey at the end, a nice way to cut the citrus. Very drinkable.

Mouthfeel is thin with very little substance, more honey might have provided some substance. Lightly carbonated.

Overall a great summer drink for all day long.
