Slightly hazy dark orange amber with a large sized rocky white head. Grassy floral hop aroma with tinges of grapefruit. Mild malt flavors with tangelo zest and an acrid floral hop bitterness. Almost lemony finish. Mouthfeel is light medium and fairly dry.

Thanks to hopdog for this...
Appears a hazy orange with a small white head. Little lacing is left behind.

Taste is of the tangerine and zesty lemon with a light bit of bitterness.
Mouthfeel is zesty with a slight sourness.

Thanks to HopDog. Pours a cloudy orange with an average size white head that laced the glass. Aroma is grapefruit hops and some lemon and mandarin oranges. Flavor is tangerine, lemon and various citrus. A bit oily at the end.

Bottle acquired in trade with DarkElf (thanks!). Aromas of citrus (lemons) and flowers. Tastes of lemons, tangerines, and light grapefruit. Lightly sweet. Had a light sourness to it - we may have saved this one from going bad.

Nice and hoppy... very little follow through however. Good poor, with a nice biege head. Leaves a nice lace and is not bitter at all.

Has a very pleasant craft-brewed taste. Mellow hops is very integrated with the malt resulting in understated yet nuanced hops aromatics. Good crispness without a lot of bitterness.

On tap@O’Brien’s: Dark amber color with just a wisp of (bar pour) foam. Light sweet caramel-citrus aroma. Flavor starts lightly sweet with some grapefruit and finishes with a lightly dry orangy taste. Body is kinda watery, but it’s not a bad pale.

On tap at O’Briens in San Diego. Piney-coconut aroma. Kinda weird. Almost smells like sun tan lotion. Transparent amber color with a small khaki-colored head. Piney floral start turning watery with a little more pine to finish. Mildly astringent and thin. Needs some more malts.
