On tap at Standing 1020, 5% citra, Simcoe & Amarillo triple hop beer.. Citrus & biscuit nose, quite nice . Medium bodied but the taste is kind of flat, citrus bitterness & nothing else. OK.

Half liter bottle - pours pale amber with plenty of offwhite head and decent lacing. Nose is grass and light citrus. My wife’s apathetic grunt said it all: meh. Light caramel presence. OK but nothing more. Light taste wise for the style. Light to mid-light bitterness with light sweetness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is fruit candy, mild/medium sweetness and an odd tangy note. The flavor is citrus, malts, mild sweetness and a mix of odd tangy notes and mild bitterness in the finish.

Bottle. Orange colored pour, tons of carbonation and a very bitter orange aroma. Flavor was very bitter orange, hops and some off flavors and seemed to be slightly oxidized. The excessive carbination made this hard to enjoy.

Bottle at REAL A Gastropub, Honolulu, HI
Cloudy light amber color, with big creamy head. The aroma is strong, hoppy, very grassy, with some yeast spices, animal, manly. Lean mouthfeel, dry; it has some malt flavor, strong hopping, with green and grassy character, some light soapy impression too. Long, bold and dry final.

Bitter, but not overwhelmingly so. One of the best characteristics of this beer is its balance. Fruity with some resiny zing. Tropical with a medium body.
