COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Light in color but not in hop presence. The citrusy sweet hop presence makes this beer a gateway to the world of hops.

theisti (4205) - Kansas, USA - MAR 27, 2017
12 oz can purchased as a single at Hyde Park Wine and Spirits in Cincinnati, Ohio. 17018 stamped on bottom. The pour is a hazy orange golden with a 1/2 inch white foamy head. The aroma is fresh orange citrus, sweet caramel malt and a touch of resin towards the back. The taste is a citrus soft bitterness, orange fruit, the slightly sweet caramel malt towards back. The palate is light bodied with soft carbonation and the citrus bitter finish. Solid.

Dogbrick (13777) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2016
Sample at Liberty Tavern. The beer is a clear golden-orange color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Fruit, hops and malt aroma. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, fruit and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short fruity hop aftertaste. Decent overall.

2.9
PorterPounder (8288) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Boardman, OH - Vintage Estate Wine and Beer - 12 oz can. The head has an obnoxious thickness to it that takes a good five minutes to settle down, the color is medium golden and hazy. Aroma has some light spruce accents, some grassiness. Decent pale ale flavor with some light citrus bitterness, some raw cookie dough sweetness, a hint of spearmint spiciness. Nice crispness to the mouthfeel.

3.3
ganache (6057) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 2, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2017 Can. Pour is yellow golden, hazy with a large and uncontrollable foamy off-white head, tons of visible carbonation bubbling up. Nose is mostly citrus, in-mouth confirms a few saison-like elements, grainy and sunny with a little alcohol in with the aggressive carbonation (it’s hot, actually), white grapes and white wine, medium resin, paper, low caramel and I keep thinking there’s wheat here. Sweet, lemon, very grassy (Pils-levels). Yeast is more than a little dirty and the hops are a little raw. Body has a touch of creaminess to it, medium with a hint of chalk. Bold and lively, to be sure. [2016.09.02: 2.9]

This can, also from VE, may be a tad fresher. Lots more rind and musky, slightly-tropical fruit. Underlying spice remains, as do the white grapes and pepper, and join a slight wave of muscat. Really nice this time. [2017.09.13: 3.5]

3.4
Lowe1983 (1632) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2016
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is pine hops and caramel malts. Slightly watery at first but gives way to the stronger pine hops. Slightly bitter finish.
