Pours deep hazy gold into a tulip. Fluffy white head with excellent retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Sweet bready caramel, tropical fruit and resin aromas. Crisp with hay, mango and bubblegum upfront turning dry in the lasting bitter lemon pith finish.

Not impressed at all. It is a really confusing and unbalanced beer, IMO it had too many hops.

On draft at Kraftwork. Pour light, clean gold with thick white head and ring lacing. Nose of sweet malts and hints of citrusy hops. Citrus comes though once tasted with some sweetness and good hop bitterness.

HenryXXX (201) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2012
Pours a hazy straw color. The nose has honey dew, cantelope, apple skin, grapes, and dusted with lite hops. The nose scream summer. The pallet is super lite and crisp, with a little yeast followed by an astringent grape, honey dew, cantelope and finishes with a slight hoppy bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught. No head. Clear brown body. Fruity honey caramel aroma. Fruity honey caramel flavor with a fair amount of hops bitterness. Low carbonation. Long aftertaste. Alcohol level just right.
