On tap at Whole Foods Blossom Hill in San Jose, CA.
Pours a golden/dark yellow with a thin head.
Smell is mild and reminiscent of orange peel and citrus.
The hops are evident on taste but very well balanced. This brew is light on its feet, which is a good thing.
Overall this is a terrific beer. Hop heads may find it wanting but I find the balance to be exquisite.

This pours a warm tan color.
As it opens I get a sharply defined orange peel aroma off the bat with some lightly caramel malt aroma.
It's lightly drying with a cinnamon hint? Along with some grassy catty onion notes, mellow and subdued under the citrus peel. Tasty.

4.41/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

On tap at Whole Foods in Pasadena, CA.

Pours a clear golden-orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, mango, papaya, and peach aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest, tropical fruit, and peach juice flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with awesome citrus and tropical fruit hop characteristics all around.

Serving type: on tap.
