Pours like a big ol' glass of super pulpy OJ. Really a beautiful looking beer if you're down with haze. Nice thick foam head. Nose is of pungent citrus peal, lemon and pale malt. Taste follows nose, a nice pungent but clean orange and grapefruit peal to start, a bit of lemon zest, ripe mangos and pinnaple. A bit of pale malt, grass and yeast as well but very light. Creamy full body with a crisp and dry finish.

16oz can, served in a willi becher glass. Pours a thick, cloudy and super pulpy bright orange body, lots of flocculation, one finger bubbly white head, fair retention, bits of pulpy lacing. Smell is bright grapefruit, resin, sweet caramel, orange, bit of zest, touch of dough. Flavour is a moderately juicy orange and grapefruit, bit of caramel, sugar, moderate zesty bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, appropriate carbonation, moderate zesty bitterness on the backend, a bit of resin. A slight alcohol burn. Smells and tastes like hop juice, heavy juice quotient, very tasty brew indeed. It seems a little "heavy" in terms of sweetness, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
