Draft- hops are assertive but the aftertaste is more citrus than bitter. A nice light body pale ale that is more sessionable than an IPA.

Great beer overall. Really pushes the limits of a pale ale. If you like Bear Republic you’ll dig this this.

On tap at Oblivion Tap Room, Orlando, pours a light orange rusty poor with a small head. Nose is like a beautiful perfume, with citrus, predominately grapefruit and other tropical and floral scents. Taste is hoppy and bitter with a pleasant citrus taste. Very drinkable with a smooth velvety taste. Nice !
