look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Opaque orange brew, topped with a sizable (> 2 fingers) snow white head with excellent retention. (Note: 2nd can I had of this had disgustingly thick and flaky floaties, a phenomenon I did NOT experience with my first can; I am not adjusting my ratings, but they are significant and disgusting.)

Herbal and citrus-y, as one would expect with Galaxy hops: Mandarin orange, oregano, peach, mango, pineapple, and just tons of juice.

Flavor is less juicy than the nose, with plenty of white cracker/biscuit maltiness, and more leafy hop notes, along with a sizeable bitterness. Sharp citrus, along with sweet tropical notes, and all throughout laced with bright herbs.

Smooth and nearly silky on the palate.

Looks like pale apple juice with a big crest of white foam in the Pilsner glass. Quite aromatic with pineapple and honeydew melon. A sweet smack to start with something peachy but also astringent.

This starts with melon taste and then turns quite bitter and yeasty, even more after the first pour. This gets really tiresome. Why muck up the hops? From the 16 oz can purchased at Bine & Vine in San Diego.

Pours into an imperial pint glass a hazy and clouded lemonade color with alot of swirling goodies,a nice bone white sticky half finger head atop.Citrus aromas with a hint of mown grass as well,some sugary sweetness lingers.Slightly fizzy in the mouth but it's not thin by any means.On the dryer side flavor-wise,citrus up front with a big lemon and grapefruit rind edge,also slightly resiny in the back end.It's highly drinkable because of it's dryness.

Presentation: 16 oz. can with the canning date printed on the bottom. Served in a Sensorik glass.

App: It develops a one and a half finger head that sticks around for a while and leaves behind some lacing rings as it goes down. The color is bright, hazy, yellow gold.

Smell: Big, fruity, hoppy aromas of pineapple and peach dominate the nose.

Taste: Juicy peach, pineapple, mango and green grape, mainly, without too much bitterness coming through. A pine resin aftertaste lingers at the end.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, creamy and medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Overall: A smooth and creamy beer with a lot of hoppy fruit character that keeps the bitterness in check. What's not to like?

Can Date: 6/28/18
Palate Contaminants: other beer

Color is a medium-light straw. Plenty hazy. Not much head, but sticky lacing.

Really sharp pine sap scent. Hell, the needles, too. Slightly sweet. Minor amount of true citrus.

Taste is dialed back from the scent, with the pine tree being more of a sapling. The citrus transitions over to pineapple. Lemongrass, as well. Way in the background there's an herbal element.

Medium weight and fine carbonation. The aftertaste is weak grapefruit juice and sawdust.
