Extremely drinkable, yet remains extremely flavorful and hoppy. This beer is light and drinkable and great for the summertime. I have noticed this beer becoming less available in the local area near the brewery, hope they don't phase this out and continue to push the lesser beer of Tangier. Regardless, this a major go-to for me and always a solid choice.

Not a bad APA, but nothing really distinctive. Bittersweet, hoppy, soft palate. pleasant. But as I said, not a standout. I'd have it again if it was the best choice.

On tap at Verona Inn. Pours a straw-colored, slightly hazy amber yellow hue. Minimal head. Pleasant nuances of pine and citrus predominate. Mouthfeel slick. Strong citrus flavor with moderate hops present. A solid, sessionable brew.
