3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can thanks to WillRunForbeer. Super hazy gold with ample carbonation. Lasting fluffy head. Aroma is citrus, orange and a grassy hop note.
Flavor is about the spot on the aroma. Nice grassy characters throughout the sip with a nice amount malt level to even the grassy notes. Even at three months after canning this is drinking really nicely. Nice body with a refreshing, grassy finish. Maybe this could swing me back to trying a few more fro this brewery again. Tasty.

Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours lightly hazy yellow with a white foam head. Lots of vibrant hops in here, zippy lemon zest, grapefruit, pale bread. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Moderately sweet to finish with tons of juicy citrus, melon, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon. Great stuff. Incredibly refreshing. Outstanding. I hope to have this again.

Bottle: The aroma consists of peach, light tropical fruits, dank notes, grapefruit, and lemon peel. It pours a cloudy dull white-yellow with a two finger white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus and peach. The finish has lemon peel, faint grapefruit, and a touch of grapefruit. It’s light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft, @ brewery.
Super light pale ale color. Light straw, perfectly see through. Head was really great, but disappeared too soon. NOSE - smelled amazing. Subtle hoppiness. Fruit at the beginning, yielding to some resin.
A bit lacking. Flavor does not back up the great smells of fruity and slightly resinous hop. Very much an ale, not so pale.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2014 Can: Thanks, Mike. Super cloudy, opaque pear colored body, not much head at all. Aroma of peach, pineapple juice, tangerine, mild passion fruit, perfume... Quite juicy, very ripe & fresh. Light grassy, oily hop notes. Flavor is much lighter, less poignant. Faint citrus, grains, grass, slight white pepper, a little watered down. Thin body, abrupt finish. Smells pretty great but the flavor is a bit of a let down, comparatively.

Odd milky yellow color that looks sort of like a hefeweizen with a tall white head. The aroma is a blast of citrus on top of some bread and a little weed. Sweet. Lots of OJ and peach to the flavor. Lingering fruit and just a hint of pine bitterness. Very smooth with some fairly aggressive carbonation as a counterpoint. Refreshing, delicious and amazingly drinkable.
My enthusiasm is a little tempered by the price, I swapped for this but I think the price at the brewery is $12 for a 4-pack of 12 oz cans. Regardless this is a great beer and I’m happy to see something of this quality actually packaged up in something other than a growler or swing-top.
