12 oz bottle. Pours orange with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, bready malt and tropical fruit. Body is full and crisp. Herbal hops dominate the palate with bready malt and tropical fruit in the background. Finish is long and very hoppy. Nice brew.

I got a bottle of this off the single shelf from a Kroger just down the road from south metro ice. It poured a clear golden with white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had pine and floral notes. The taste had bitter pine at the front and end of the drink.....with subtle fruit sweetness in between. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a decent beer.

Pours a dark copper, light orange with medium carbonation. Lots of hops on the nose and the body is much the same with just enough body/malt to keep up with the hops. Hop profile is a bit all over the place but the beer is still enjoyable.

Poured a dark amber with a one finger frothy off-white head that dissipated a bit but generally stayed. Moderate lacing was present. Aroma was floral and honeydew melon with a hint of pine. Tastes of grapefruit, malt and honey. Moderate carbonation and body. Nicely balanced and crisp.

Fine except for the taste. Really disappointed. Taste didn't pass the Miller Lite test ("would you rather have a Miller Lite or this beer" is the question). Bitter but not in a hoppy way. Tasted like there was more alcohol in it than there actually was. A hard pass from me. First from this brewery (I was excited), but now I will likely not try Tröegs again for a bit.

Light amber color and see through look to this beer with a thick off white head from tap. Citric and spicy nose with maybe a hint of vanilla. Similar flavor with some earthy hops and some depth of malt and a citrus bitterness. A bit different that your run of the mill IPA and worth a try. Fair amount of carbonation to boot. Good beer.
