Pours a murky brownish yellow with a huge rocky head. Looks like the bottom of the Brew kettle after you’ve racked off the beer and are left with trub.

Moderate hop aromas: I get orange or tangerine peel, strawberry, mint tea. Some doughy malt notes.

Light to moderate upfront bitterness with a dose of hop flavors rounded out by smooth mouthfeel. Some pine & citrus hop notes (orange notes) and some light dank character. Some say you drink with your eyes and this is not a plus for this beer. God forbid they put flour in this beer! (Please tell me no!)

A little disappointed with this beer. Heard good things coming from Levante. I hope their other beers live up to the hype. This one is a miss for me.

Moderate pour yields a 1/2 inch white head over a slightly hazy golden body with some nice lacing. Nose of tropical fruit, floral hops, and ever so slight pine. Taste mirrors nose somewhat and very nice on the palate with a nice piney bitter finish. Nice feel and overall a nice job from West Chester, PA. Cheers!
