hazy orange color, Smells fantastic lots of orange and honey and sweet brett. very sweet, loads of funky brett. really well blended, very approachable and super light. maybe too much bitterness at the finish but that would fade with time. this was a 12oz flip top bottle. I want more!

Bottle. Vibrant but cloudy orange colour with a firm head. The aroma is full and inviting with citrus zest, spices, funky qualities, musky. The flavour is fruity, namely lime and orange, with tart qualities, muskiness, yeast, smooth and refreshing, so enjoyable.

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Draft... Pours clear and golden with a large, creamy, white head. Good retention. Subtle bouquet of cereal grains and citrus fruit - key lime, lemon and light woody funk. Light-bodied with a thin mouthfeel and dancing carbonation. The flavor is lightly fruity, mildly tart and as bright as high-noon in the Mojave. Crisp, clean, refreshing finish.
