A: Foggy Honey orange, a beach sunset in a glass. Just enough clarity to see the beer horizon. About a finger head with modest lacing.
S: Zesty! Bold citrus favoring grapefruit. Orange makes an appearance with tangelo juiciness. There's a party in the orchard, and Mikkeller is buying the drinks.
T: Deliciously smooth and spicy. A light hop bitterness that is suggestive of steamed dark veggies. Dark Veggies that are zested with a copious amount of citrus. Drink to your health!
M: The mouth dissipates pretty rapidly. I will give it the benefit of the doubt and say "low carbonation". It's there, I just have to give it some thought. It definitely could have used the help of the mouth to make this a really consistent experience. Oh well, the orchard party must go on! Despite the zephyr of a mouth-feel.
D: Overall this beer is at is says "simcoe single-hop". Not dynamic, but it's not trying to be. There is a deliciousness here, but it is not an evangelist. No one will be converted, but the simcoe choir will sing its praises.
