I loved the color. A pretty amber orange very similar to a Hop Valley Alphadelic but less turbid. Nice mild citrus flavor, not extremely butter or overly hoppy but tasty. Can't wait to have another tomorrow.

Pours a golden colour with an almost grapefruit nose. Has a hoppy bitterness on the tongue right away with some malt coming through at the end. I enjoyed this one but that's not too surprising given that I tend to sway to this style of beer.

Pretty heavy & boozy for what I'd hoped for.

Mild, fruity notes of dried apricot up front, muted bitterness at the back.
