Strong citrus and hop aroma, limited head of light foam, tangerine color. Refreshing tart citrus taste with a powerful hoppy finish, overwhelming the initial pop of orange. Pleasant and crisp pale.

Lizardking3 (157) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - JUL 27, 2014
This is really nice in the summer. Pours a beautiful cloudy amber, with pink hues. There was basically no head on mine, probably a bad poor. Smells really nice, citrus notes right off the bat, orange, grapefruit. First taste is sweet, and then wheaty, then the orange hits hard and finishes with bitterness that works really well here with orange. Good brew

Transfer from BA review on 5-5-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a hazy orange color with a slight copper tint. Upon pouring there is a one finger white head that has a good level of retention. The head slowly fades over time to leave a great level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell - The smell is big of a grainy like smell mixed with an orange citrus as well as a grapefruit hop like aroma. Mixed with these smells are some other lighter fruit aromas as well as a little bit of a grassy aroma. Taste - The taste starts with an tangerine and bready flavor with a fair amount of graininess. The tangerine flavor remains, but seems to dry out as the flavor continues growing much less sweet and more bitter as the flavor advances. One of the reasons the flavor bitters and dries as it advances is that a grapefruit hop flavor begins developing more toward the middle of the taste. This grapefruit hop grows stronger till the end of the taste, mixing with a more grainy flavor as well as some notes of a grassy and herbal nature to leave a drier hopped citrus and grainy flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel -The body of the beer is light with a carbonation level that is rather average. Both are very fitting for the tangerine and grainy flavors of the brew producing a refreshing beer overall. Overall – This was an interesting one, as it was much more bitter and hoppy then I was originally expecting. I was expecting a wit like brew and got something of a wit-IPA blend. While it was not what I was expecting, it was rather tasty and is well worth a try if you get the chance.
