Shot glass showing golden amber.
The nose shows clean, punchy pine notes with subtle tropical fruit notes underneath.
The palate is moderately carbonated and medium bodied. Very fruit forward but perfectly balanced by the sweet malts and a light pilsner-like bitterness on the finish. angelkostvo (1248) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 1, 2016

Oranje kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt fruitig, citrus, orange, honing. Smaakt fruitig, bitter, honing. StefanSD (2468) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - MAR 16, 2012
650 ml bottle courtesy of freddy. Pours an amber-yellow color with a big off-white head. Very potent nose with lots of citrus, especially oranges and tangerines. The flavor is that of a hoppy-citrusy IPA with grapefruit, oranges and papaya set in a caramel malt base that is rich in toffee. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: Very tasty brew, me like.

Poured from a 22-oz. bomber into a pint glass. About two fingers of head. Color was caramel honey toffee. Brownish white lacing with some bubbles on the top. Wet, uneven and sporadic film on the sides.
Smelled lemon citrus hops up front. Also some lime piny notes in there. Sweet floral notes. Fairly malty, but still refreshing on the nose.
Very balanced taste, could hardly taste the alcohol. Lemon citrus hops really came through here. The maltiness seemed to balance the citrus hops out. So smooth.
Medium body. Average carbonation. Slight bitter, but smooth finish. Refreshing feeling.
Really liked this beer as I do with most of the ones from Karl Strauss. Smoot h and very drinkable.
