A - Served a cloudy golden-orange color with a half-finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some good lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel and light biscuit malts with some citrus and grapefruit hops. T - Starts off with some citrus and grapefruit hops with some caramel and light biscuit malts. Through the middle, some more biscuity malts come through with a bit of bitterness. The finish is a mix of grapefruit hops with some sweet biscuit and caramel malts. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and dry finish. D - Very drinkable. Really nice biscuity malt profile with enough hops to balance. Very sessionable.

On tap at RR. Pour was a light orange and amber with a light white head and lighter retention. Lots of hops mainly, tons of citrus and floral. Light malt and spice. Bitter? More like hoppy as hell pale ale. Light English influence with the floral bright hoppy flavor and light malt body. Big citrus and light hop bitterness carried this. Light body, a bit thin, mild carbonation. Did not get much English out of this but this was very drinkable and very refreshing. Reviewed on: 08-17-2010

GT2 (8440) - San Diego County, California, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Tap at Russian River. Pours a chill hazed orange with a small, white head. No lace. Starfruit, watermelon candies, strawberry candies, something else sweet medicinal in the nose. Taste is neutral, a bit suddy, mildly bitter. Clean and very neutral to near bland. In a way it tastes like flavored tangerine seltzer water. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is fine but compared to the other RR beers, it’s tough to compete man!
