3.25/5  rDev -7.7%

Orange / amber in color with a short 1/2" head that broke down quickly. Mild citrus aroma. Main flavors were caramel, orange, mango, and a mild earthy bitterness. Crisp from start to finish and was refreshing.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours amber brown and cloudy. Looks like it could have a decent head if it wasn't a bar pour nearly to the brim of the shaker pint. Good retention of what bubbles are there. Some decent lacing. Mild citrus and pine hop aroma. Some caramel maltiness evident. Fairly sweet. Taste has some nice piney hop flavor and a good deal of caramel/crystal malt, too much really. Mildly dry. Mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is pretty normal. Some hop oiliness. Easy to drink but lacking in flavor. It has a toasty malt feel. Almost an amber, really. Not offensive in any way but I wouldn't order another. There's just not enough hop flavor for me.

A promising brew from a newly launched micro in SF. This pours a cloudy gold. It’s lightly hopped with a pleasant bittering but a thin body. I get an orange character dominating the hop profile. Could have used a little more malt presence to balance it out and give it some more heft.
