UPDATED: AUG 7, 2012 Pours a slightly hazed golden with a white head. Nose has a nice citrusy quality. A touch of pine and some floral notes. Mild bread and cracker malt sweetness. Taste is a bit too bitter and astringent. Grain husk, grapefruit peel, some orange, and a light pine note. Some mild bread and cracker malt flavor and sweetness. Light bodied with medium carbonation.

Gold pour, white head. Aroma is floral hops up front, some very faint stone fruit and maybe a hint of tropical fruit. Flavor is hoppy up front, a bit of tangerine maybe, caramel and some grainy notes in the finish.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 26, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Pours with a lightly hazed golden yellow hued body with a large and lasting, foamy white head. Good retention and lace. Aromas are grainy, grassy, hoppy, orange and tangerine, a bit of a bready malt profile, some esters, light pine. Flavors are very, very bitter. Astringently so. Pine. Plenty (too) bitter, but lacking a bit on hop flavor. Seems like they got a fair amount more utilization than planned. Medium bubbles, dry, assertively bitter. Look forward to seeing future, tweaked batches of this.
