This quenching brew is crafted in the American west-coast style. It sports a beautiful soft citrus hop aroma which gives way to a round, honeyed-fruit flavor. The finish is crisp and refreshing.

Bottle from Systembolaget enjoyed at home
Copper hazy, big offwhite head. Smells of citrus, pine, hints of grain in the back. Moderate sweet, grain, hints of yeast. Medium bitter, resinis and pine. Strange pale ale, quit alot of grain influence in it. OK, hop base, quite easy to drink.

SlackerMads (1431) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2013 Bottle. Hazy orange with a large good lasting and lacing off white head. Aroma is pine, peach, honey, white bread, light citrus. Taste is light/medium sweet and light bitter. Light body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Looks great and has a nice mouthfeel, but I don’t find the hop profile all that interesting.

Crille (80) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2013
Cloudy orange color. Lots of citrus on the nose, hay and a grassy notes. Sweet clean hoppy flavor, but the finish is not great.

GT2 (8270) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Tap at CK thanks to 3fourths. Pours a clear, lighter orange. Medium foam to low. Nose is fresher citrus, muted aroma hops, something very delicate typical of Japanese beers that is unfamiliar to me like fresh rainwater and almost fresh Brett although Brett is clearly not in the beer. Taste is neutral, some decent maltiness, citrus rind balance. Palate is softer, perhaps a bit mealy. We were thinking the freshness on this one is probably low given the lack of aromatic hops and the mealy apple body.
