One2remeber (213) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2015
Canned 04/08. Attractive silky white head. Vibrant orange, yellow hue. Hazy is an understatement. Creamy, heavy hop oil (like a NZ galaxy), grainy husk texture gives a zesty flavor. Clean yeast. Tons of flavor relative to average AWA. Great 6-pack for golfing.

It pours golden with a white head. It has aromas of wheat, spices, a hint of lemon, and other sweat fruit aromas. It has an initial crisp bit of sweet and sour fruit, lemon, and wheat. It is a bit less that moderately biter on the palate. There is also a bit of fruit rind on the palate.
