Quite cloudy yellowish in appearance with a brief foam. Slight citrusy aroma. There is a spicy note that seems to hold promise, and an orange juice flavor as someone noted. But then it's all murk, all acidity, all scratchy gunk in the back of the throat.

Then there's the aftertaste that is just nerve-wracking. Astringent, rough, tongue-scraping, bad stewed tea with a hint of unripe persimmon. It never ends. I don't know why brewers think this is a successful result. I call it a beer-like non-drinkable event. From the 32 oz crowler purchased from Blind Lady.

On tap at Green Cheek in Orange, CA.

Definitely not kicking Sink or Swim out of the bed for eating crackers, but... Actually, hells yeah. I was going to say that it leaves a little to be desired, but because my last beer was so money, it’s almost hard to hold this one up next to it. But you know what? I will! I’m not exactly going to call this one Mike Tyson, but it still holds more weight than the human hater Manny Paquio. This one is basically a middle weight (Raul don’t know much about boxing, so he can’t name a famous one).

Waboom! Pow! Upper cut! This one hits you hard and heavenly all at the same time!

Canned 7/2/19
L: Bright hazy yellow with 2 fingers of head. Minimal lacing on the glass. It isn't a murk bomb, but I actually prefer that.
S: Very citrusy on the nose with hints of mango and pineapple. Slight grassy presence with aromas of tea.
T: Great. Orange and grapefruit up front with a grassy, floral and lemony finish. Mild hop presence with after taste of tea and lemon.
F: Soft, light and smooth. No booze presence and moderate carbonation.
O: A very enjoyable offering, and one that I would drink again. Cheers!

looks, feels and tastes like orange juice! thick as if it has lots of pulp, sweet with a slight tartness like a fresh glass of orange juice does.... super easy to drink! very delicious! excellent, in my opinion....
