Hazy orange yellow, light fluffy head.

Not much in the way of aroma, some faint citrus aromatics, floral notes, but you have to hunt for it.

Tastes of massive citrus fruits, some stone fruit, lemon/lime, followed by a sweet alcohol finish and a touch of bitterness but not much.

Medium mouthfeel, smooth body with that touch of alcohol burn on the backend.

Great beer from Wild Leap.

3.52/5  rDev -15%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Pours an opaque, orange-yellow body with a medium-small, near-white head.

Smell: AA Vol #1, it's got a bit of a dead aroma, oddly enough, just a bit of distant florals, lightly shuffling citrus showing, maybe a touch of wheat.

Taste: Fairly sweet, tropical-citrusy fruitiness, tasting of Mexican limes, passion fruit, melon and lemon with a pinch of earthy black pepper. Very low bitterness. Bit of alcohol culminating on the swallow fruity-sweet finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-light carbonation.

Overall: Sufficient, though it lacks a looked-for layer of grace, delicateness and the weak nose is a disappointment.

12oz can from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 2.89. No canning date but this is a recent release. Served in a Barrel and Barley teku. Enjoyed 6/26/18.

Pours an opaque dull orange with two fingers of dense white froth. There is little surface retention but a thin collar and several wide trails of lace.

The aroma seems fairly muted but pleasant. Soft citrusy hops, some fruit skin and a touch of malt sweetness.

Huge, vibrant juicy hop flavors. Oranges, lemon, berries, grapefruit, lime, peach and some faint cake. Incredibly easy to drink with almost no alcohol presence.

Medium body with lightly fluffy carbonation. Juicy finish of oranges and peach.

Between Upright and Alpha Abstraction I am sold on Wild Leap’s abilities in the hop department.
