3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber with two fingers of long lasting head. Mostly smell the hops with light citrus and spruce. Grassy, light citrus, and piney taste. A bit too hoppy for me as a summer ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2015 12oz bottle, poured into a tulip. The aroma of the big, white puffy and sudsy head is initially damp and musty, but this fades and turns to a floral spruce and orange/mango blend with a slight hint of cat pee late buried in there. The beer is clear and oily looking with a caramel gold hue and a light effervescence. The head retains a moderate amount and it leaves behind a good amount of messy lace. The taste is a muted, medium bitter medium and light sweet. The beer is slick and thin with a medium light body and a moderate, soft fuzz. The flavor profile is lighty soapy with mellow notes of caramel, a light roast character, oranges, and pastry dough, with some tropical notes late. It finishes with a clean spruce and citrus combination and an aftertaste of bread crust and muted, bitter citrus that’s slightly cloying and strong at first, but fairly short lasting.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A beautiful and inviting summer citrus, yeast, hoppy smell. Taste is light citrus to start and ends a little dry, slightly bitter. Heavier than it looks but still light and enjoyable for summer.
