This can was courtesy of Strykzone. Thanks. It poured a hazy gold, with a foamy white head and moderate lacing. The nose is citrus and floral hops Medium body and smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is mild compared to the nose, but gets better as the beer warms. Light biter finish. Quite decent.

12 oz can. Pours a hazy orange golden caramel with a large fluffy white head. Aroma of faint floral notes, light orange citrus and hops. Taste of faint floral notes, watery hops and citrus. Good intentions with this brew, but it sadly comes up short.

thegreenrooster (3089) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Pour is a orange with a large white head. Aroma is a nice, lush citrus hop. Flavor does not live up to the aroma. Hops are there but way weak. There is a more matly backbone in the flavor that does give the beer a nice earhtyness. This was ok and worthy of a pick up.

nuplastikk (4138) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 12, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2011 12oz can, Hazy orange-tan with a steady, foamy, off-white head. Cool, astringent hop aroma, quite aromatic and nice. Quite hop-forward, wouldn’t be out of place at a West Coast brewpub. Well balanced still, with a nice toasty malt backbone. Clean, bold, and true to style. Well done.
