Hazy orange in color with off white head. Aroma of citrus, flavor of hops off the bat, but the malt takes the finish. Not as hoppy as I thoght.

Draft at Humpy’s Alaskan Ale House, Anchorage. Orange with a thin and sticky head. Nice quiet little hop aroma. Solid enough hop-metallic flavors with a hint/breeze of grapefruit, very nice little pale ale, American style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the name, I expected more hops. Much more of a citrus based beer than anything else. Golden coloring, with a citrus nose. Flavor is slightly bitter, with some malt flavoring for balance. Citrus again, and then small amount of hop flavoring. Not their best, but their worst is still good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
in my opinion, best seasonal of the season, strong citrus with a strange kind of curry-ish aroma in the nose, rocky white head, golden clear body, strong tangarine-ish flavor, delicate malts, very well balanced and refreshing, I’m also pumped that they brought back the old label design with U of O colors, damn this is good, GO DUCKS!
