Pour from a bottle is a very hazy light amber. Smells is subtle grapefruit and citrus. Taste is subtle grapefruit with a little hints of tea. Leaves a clean after taste.

On tap at the Pour Taproom (SC). Pours with a lightly hazy golden-amber body that’s topped by a durable white head that leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. Medium+ carbonation; medium body. Lots of citrus in the pleasing aroma. The flavor is bolder and richer than the aroma suggests, and leaves a semi-bitter lingering aftertaste. Mild bitterness for style. Well hidden ABV.

Poured from a can bought from Bella Vita in New Haven. Pours dark amber. Thin white head recedes quickly. Pine resin and dark fruit on the nose. Mild malt flavor behind lemon peel, pine, plum and white grapes. Finish is sour and bitter. Carbonation is fine and each sip releases a burst of effervescence. Mouth feel is somewhat thin. Overall a really interesting beer. Would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This brew is a clear dark gold color with a medium white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing. Aroma of piney hops, fruit and malt. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, tropical citrus and grainy malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a grapefruit and hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Lata 50 cl en el Lúpulo Oviedo 17..06..2017. (r252). Color ámbar anaranjado turbio con espuma blanca persistente. Sabores I tensos afrutados tropicales con buenos tonos de uvas y vinos blancos frescos y ligeras maderas. Suaves especiados. Cuerpo medio algo espumoso fino y sensación alcohólica que se deja notar desde el principio. Amargo final dulce algo herbaceo. Bastante buena para repetir sin duda.
