Poured from their 12oz bottle...

Appearance - Pours nearly 2 fingers of golden eggshell head, body is a gorgeous hazy lite orange amber, lots of carb rising within the body, really nice lace rings after each quaff.

Smell - Bready malt, light floral hops, slight citrus, whiff of sweet tropical ftuit. A bit light in the nose overall, needs a pretty good whiff to pick up the flavors I describe.

Taste - Begins with alot of doughy malt with a touch of yeast, very light tropical fruit with a touch of pineapple sweetness, nice floral hops, finishes very clean with just a hint of grapefruit pith and dry breadcrust long into the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium mouthfeel, not mouthcoating at all but nice fuller flavors in the mouth, carb is just under medium and very smooth and slightly slick, but provides just a few bright edges at the back of the tongue. Finish is nearly clean with slight dryness, but leaves trace malt sweetness in the mouth corners.

Overall - Almost feels & tastes more like an apa, but still a very well balanced ale with some nice complexity - transition is very nice. Smooth drinker, alcohol completely hidden, and still pretty sessionable at 6.1%. Looks great and nearly has the taste to back it up, give this one a try - a must to include in a mixed 6 if you're able.

The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the flowers and biscuit malt. The flavor is more of the same. The hops deliver some bitter floral and pine notes, as well as some orange citrus and some biscuit malt. The bitterness level is about medium. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pretty, golden amber with a creamy light tan head. Nice lacing in my glass. Lightly toasted grain and faint hop notes in the aroma. Light, toffee and citrusy flavors with a faintly harsh bitterness. Finishes a little dry and hop oily. This beer is light bodied. It is my favorite of their offerings, I would buy it again.

Appearance: 1.5 finger off-white head, recedes quickly; brass body, unclouded, but with floaties. Not pretty, but I don’t really mind.

Smell: floral and fruity hop aroma (Odd notes I’m getting: white grapes and coriander). Smells yummy.

Taste: Citrusy, piney, herbal. So on, so forth. It tastes fine, but doesn’t really distinguish itself very much in any way. Thin and dry.

Overall: It’s alright.
