Pale orange in color. The aroma has a light trace of hope, but nothing really sticks out. The taste has a mild bitter taste at first that finishes strong in dry bitterness.

Bottle... Poured amber-ish with an off-white head. Primary flavors of biscuit malts and sweet caramel notes. Very drinkable but didnít quite seem like the summer session youíd expect.

22 oz bottle from Market of Choice. 1st review of this beer! First off, there is no way this is a Golden/Blond, my best guess would be an American Pale Ale. Pours out a deep amber with a minimal head and zero lacing. Aroma is mostly sweet citrus hops, grapefruit, orange and maybe lime with some nice malt smells to boot. Flavor is citrus hops as well, mostly orange with some grapefruit and tropical fruits with a solid malt backing. A tad bit of astringency throws things off, but outside of that itís a nice beer.
