b3shine (5458) - Indiana, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Draft to snifter at Neon’s. Looks good for the style; a slightly hazy orange with thin white lacing. Smells. And tastes good too; woody and a little yeasty with a heavy but pleasant grapefruit presence. Nice on the palate too. Great beer, and a major improvement to the base.

Citrus and tropical fruit on the nose, with some notes of honey graham cracker. Mostly clear, very light peachy hue, with a fairly lasting, white head. Off-dry, fruity, and with subtle notes of golden earth. Light bodied, refreshing, and with nice lingering, fresh fruitiness.
