Very pale golden yellow with a white head. Orange and grape fruit aroma, strong. Burst of citrusy hops. Smooth and refreshing, slight alcohol burn.

asedzie (604) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Can- bought at Angeliís, Menominee, U.P (great beer selection here).. Pours pale golden with moderate head, some lacing. Nose is clean citrus, some fresh pine and a little spice. Flavor is phenomenal - big alpha acid notes of tropical fruit - mango, starfruit, some pineapple - finishes with a dry and plesant bitterness and lingering fruity hop notes. Very hop forward but balanced by a well-structured, creamy malt bill. Comparable to the better of the west coast IPAs Iíve had - surprised to find this coming out of the detroit metro.

ARH (406) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2014
On tap, poured into an imperial pint glass. The aromas are very light and relatively muted. There are some traces of grain, citrus peel, caramel, herbs, and wet cardboard. It pours a clear, effervescent yellow gold color with a white, soapy head. A thick ring is retained with an ample surface coating, and it leaves lots of sheet-like lace. The taste is a medium/medium-high bitter with a medium sweet. The beerís texture is thin with a medium body and an active, zippy carbonation. A sweet orange and caramel note turns into a bitter grapefruit with some grass and grain at the finish. The grapefruit and grass linger for a bit in the aftertaste, but it has a nice cleansing effect.

Pour on tap, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, pine, orange, hints of biscuit and bread, some spice, pretty nice and clean. Taste is a mix of grass, pine, orange, grapefruit, hints of bread, biscuit, vanilla, hints of spice, finishing bitter, clean. Nice.

Tap. Crisp straw gold. Good head on pour that lasts awhile. Nose of floral hops. Good floral hop character. Not too bitter. Good summer beer.

574deadzone (1042) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Pours a clear true golden with a thick, rocky eggshell head that settles slowly and leaves some big foamy lace. Nose involves spicy hops, pine, papaya and pineapple, and some buttery coconut. Pretty sweet flavor, fairly bitter. Lighter bodied, oily, active, creamy, with a long tropical fruit and bitter hop finish. Other than the buttery notes, which are evident but not excessive, not a bad brew.
