💁 THE Wife's $.02: 👎😏🤗
The look has a nice, light golden color to it. Bubbles race to the top almost trying to beat the white, fluffy foam that is forming. Overtime, I began to notice some lurking guests (floaters) along with a thin, soapy like lacing. The nose is held back slightly but I do catch an orangy citrus profile to it. As the brew warms up a bit, melons start attacking my sniffer with a little malty character to it. I notice carbonation more than anything on the mouth of this light bodied liquid. There wasn't any bitterness or sticky feel, but I do get a nice tickler all the way through. The taste followed the nose well, oranges, lemons, and melons were all bouncing around and as the beer warms up I start to catch a slight bitter kick on the finish. A good year round beer you can snag at bottle shops throughout SoCal. If you like a friendlier IPA this is your jam!
