Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a note of passionfruit and light citrus with a hint of grapefruit and earthy grains. Flavor has citrus and earthy passionfruit that mellow to grassy hops and a bit of earthy grain.
