Clear, light orange gold beer with a dense white head. It leaves globs of lacing behind. Orange and pine with some malty sweetness waft from the glass. Light sweetness with a lot of citrus and bitter pine in the taste. The aftertaste has a bready yeast quality. Pretty solid beer all around.

12 oz. Bottle
DOB: 05/11/17

Pours a pretty nice clean/clear dark golden yellowish color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, slight malt note, nice citrusy. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, malty, nice touch of citrus. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a nice thirst quencher.

See through light golden look to this brew. Citra hops and slight malt on the nose which is fairly appealing. Pretty decent flavor with just slight sweetness (could use a bit more) and citrus flavor to start then a light bready finish. Almost creamy mouthfeel with decent carbonation and really slight bitterness complete this beer. Overall pretty good.

12oz. can into oversized wine glass.

Look: Pale amber with a decently sized head that fades to a thick layer of lace.

Smell: Fresh citrus peel. A bit spicy.

Taste: Big, refreshing citric hop character right up front. The malt backbone balances without adding much in the way of sweetness. It's there more as a backdrop for the hops to come through. Little lingering bitterness in the finish.

Feel: Bright, tight carbonation and moderate body. The carbonation lifts the flavors and keeps anything from lingering too much.

Overall: Bright and refreshing. Less of a lingering hop character than other beers of this style, which makes it very drinkable.
