A: Hazy dirty orange in color. Forms a fairly large, rocky, and incredibly stable white head that leaves copious amounts of lacing on the way down.
S: Strong aroma of orange juice and orange blossom with hints of floral hops and just a touch of bubblegum.
T: Lots of orange and orange juice. There is a moderate sweetness that slowly fades to reveal a mild caramel malt backbone before the bitter starts to turn aggressively bitter, finishing with notes of pine resin and alcohol.
M: On the heavier side of medium with appropriate carbonation and an aggressive, but balanced, bitterness.
O: This is one of those beers I've had a half dozen times, but apparently have never reviewed. It really is just a great beer and is probably one of the best representations of the style. Wonderfully juicy with a strong bitterness, but still incredibly easy to drink.
Serving type: can
