Draught at Popeyes. Pours reddish orange with a medium tan head. Aroma was sweet malt, citrus hops, and refreshing/tropical fruit. Had a crisp hoppy flavor. Citrus, sweet fruit, and bitter. Very refreshing. Medium body. I greatly enjoyed this beer and I plan on drinking more of it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost no head, just thin white film. Hazy amber body. Citric tropical fruit hop aroma with sweetish notes. Taste is deep, firm sweet tropical fruit and resiny hops. Dry, oily hop aftertaste. Excellent. (0.25l on tap.)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Amber almost red ale with a big off-white head and a bit of lace. Flowery hops in the nose. Nicely balanced taste with initial sweetness then toast, citrus, and a bit of caramel. The hop taste lingers nicely. Eminently drinkable.

12-ounce bottle left over from WBC. Wow. What an awesome beer. Big sand-colored bubbly head, gorgeous amber/garnet orange-y body. Kind of Belgian-esque on the nose, has to be the yeast, that little combination of bread and bubblegum some of the lighter B ales have. Pleasantly surprising complexity for one so mild, especially given the travel involved--sour malt on the attack with a toasty, buttery contrast. Crisp floral hop finish with some real sustain to the bitters. Absolutely a credible nod to PNW hoppy ales. Nicely done.
