Bottle. Hazy, fall-colored beer of golden orange. Just a fizz. The aroma is tight and fruity, hinting at an acidic drink. It delivers a very tart character, with a bit of cloying adhesion, the base a nice tangerine-grape. (#5744, 9/21/2014)

Medium sweet flavor with understated pale bread, slight pine, tangerine meringue, grapefruit. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with some grass and pine bitterness, dried berries, orange rind. Good start though the bitterness is a bit harsh on the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Hicksville Beer & Soda, 9/2/14
Aroma: The nose is heavy fruity and hoppy, nice tropical fruit and white wine
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a small head and average lacework
Flavor: The flavor is dry and fairly bitter, with a mid-to-late sweetness, and a dry finish
Palate: The body is medium, it has a smooth mouthfeel, soft carbonation, and a dry finish
This is an interesting one. There’s a more typical tropical fruit hop presence over an underlying white wine flavor. Overall, it’s a pretty solid, enjoyable beer.
