Draft at Whole Foods. Pours hazy dark straw with off-white head. Nose was hops, piney, caramel malt, tangerine. Tasted hoppy, with notes of pine, tangerine, pineapple. Complex, but perhaps a bit light on carbonation. Well above average.

KyotoLefty (7876) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 21, 2015
Tap. Orange color, lace. Light citrus nose with biscuity malt. A bit milder in the orange hops than I expected, though they come through a bit. Somewhat sweet, biscuity. Ok.
