On tap at Central Coast Brewing in San Luis Obispo, CA.

Pours a slightly hazy orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Thin foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest. Taste is much the same with a medium hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

The beer poured a wonderful copper color with a fingers worth of an off-white head, that left decent lacing. The aroma was pleasant, showcasing notes of orange rind and pine. The taste followed the aroma with pine, pineapple and tart citrus. The mouth feel was slightly sticky at first but finished dry.
