Enjoy by: 5/24/15.

Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus fruit, citrus zest, and slight earth aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet citrus fruit and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Serving type: bottle.

Nice. 9% well disguised with a perfect blend of citrus, hops and malt.
