kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - SEP 29, 2009
Poured a slightly haxy reddish orange with thin off white head that lingers well into the glass as a thin ring atop. Nose is hoppy citrus fruit and apples, and the mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly tingly. Flavor pisks up the hoppy fruit of the nose and the finish is tart and dry, yet a little short. I apparently think more of this beer than most raters, but I thionk it would make a good session beer.
