L: Drinking from the can.

S: Hoppy malts. Citrusy and tropical.

T: Fruity on the front and hoppy in the back. Interesting malt character unlike anything I've tasted.

F: Resiny finish. The hop's oil is a big indicator of quality to me, and this is far above average, (but not maxed out.)

O: There's plenty of sweet hazy action to counterbalance the hop's bitterness. It's mellow and approachable.

Pours a very cloudy yellow color with a thin foamy head. Head retention is mild. Lacing is good. Juicy citrus aroma. Orange and grapefruit. Juicy grapefruit taste. Mild piney resin with a larger amount of bitterness at the end than expected. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

Pours a very hazed gold with one finger of pearl colored head. Pretty good head retention & lacing

S: Orange peels, a little pineapple, fades a bit down the stretch

T: Sweet orange with a little dryness, a touch of white grape & green melon as well. A little mango sneaks in, along with a little sour & sweet orange, plus dryness, plus a bit of pink grapefruit as this warms. Finishes with a little sour orange & grapefruit, plus some green melon

MF: Medium body, fairly firm carbonation, lovely balance

Great drinkablity, a good take on this style, pretty pricey, almost $ 2.50 a can

CAN:

Brewed with Pilsen malt, flaked oats, wheat, and Mosaic & El Dorado hops.

6.8% ABV. 70 IBU.

Soft wheat. Juice. Citrus. I'm getting Mosaic's tropical hop flavour, but not it's more interesting signature blueberry note. Pilsner malt. Clean 2-row.

Balanced but not horribly well executed given the lack of a standout hop profile; this doesn't utilize Mosaic to its fullest extent and doesn't bring much to the table in terms of hop pungency.

Refreshing and enjoyable but not a beer I'd knowingly buy again.

C+ / ABOVE AVERAGE
