4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2014 Sampled at GABF with Andrew and Moreau. Pours a lightly hazy, bright orange body with light white lacing. Aroma is super fresh citrus hop, light dank herb and incredible pine flavor. Mouthfeel is medium, sessionable and refreshing, the perfect blend of tropical fruits, pine hop,citrus and a cheesy funk dank flavor. Tangerines dance along side nectarines and pomelos! Incredible overall, and perhaps the best of the entire fest for me personally.

On tap. Pour is a clear golden orange with a creamy white head. Nose is tight with light malt caramel and some nice grainy malt. Good hop profile, notes of citrus and strong herbal presence. Taste is balanced, dry finish, tight balance, grain and faint sweet caramel with citrus and herbal hops.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at city beer store in the midst of Folsom street fair... Soooo not the most thorough review. Clear golden pour, strong citrus aroma. Taste is extremely hoppy for a pale ale, basically an ipa+, lots of grapefruit bitterness, pretty much hides the pale malt characteristics. Very fresh floral tasting.
