COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This liquid dream pours a hazy golden orange straw color with a large puffy white two-finger head. First sip of this beer rewards with a super juicy hop presence bursting with fresh orange and lemon citrus then continues to introduce toasted malt undertones.

12 ounce bottle purchased at Hy-Vee in Cedar Rapids just a few blocks away from my in-laws’ place while visiting for Christmas ($2.99). Pours a slightly hazed golden hue with only a half finger of white foam (despite the label promising two fingers). AROMA of sweet toasted grains, fresh-cut grass, herbal hops, and lesser notes of dank, citrus, and stone fruit. FLAVOR of lightly honeyed cereal grains, some sweet-ish citrus, some spicy and herbal hops, and earthy pine. Low to moderate bitterness and light in body means this is readily drinkable. Not overly impressed, but I suppose this had been sitting on the shelf for a while when I purchased it...would like to try again when the fresh hops are even fresher in the bottle. (975, 997)

12 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Bottled 9/30/2015, forgot about it in my stash. Hazy golden yellow with a bit over a finger of off-white head. Aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, light floral, some malt and slightly aged hops. Tastes of citrus, floral notes, light citrus peel, a little stone fruit, light malt. Medium body with a dry finish. Juicy mouthfeel. Definitely better fresh but not bad given the age.

Clear, amber color . Medium-sized, white head. Beautiful aroma of pine , citrus and some malt. Perfectly balanced taste . Bitterness is strong but well hidden and softened by malt base . Juicy and refreshing. Great!

Rich aroma of pine hops from the start with some sweet flowers later on. the deeper inhale you do - more sweet and honey like aroma you get. Taste is a brilliant combination of malt and hops. Bitter aftertaste
