Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – Pours a slightly hazed reddish-orange-amber color with a small white head. The head fades rather fast leaving patches of foam on the surface and a super light lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is big and bready with a good dose of tangerine and caramel. Along with these more malty aromas are some rather big hoppy aromas of a grapefruit citrus hop and some resinous pine smells. A rather strong alcohol smell is there as well giving it a rather malty and citrusy warming smell overall.

Taste – The taste begins with a dry cracker and biscuit flavor mixed with some tangerine and a rather strong grapefruit hop taste. As the taste moves on, the taste dries out a bit as some tangerine fades away. While this occurs, some pine and a bit of grassy hop comes to the tongue. These flavors add quite a bit of resinous bitterness to the flavor profile, which take the taste to its end where a resinous hopped and semi-sweet malt flavor of a cracker and biscuit nature is left to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly thicker and chewier side with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The thicker body is rather nice for the hopped and resinous flavors of the brew and made it a slow sipper

Overall –A little unbalanced, starting sweeter and drying out with a decent grapefruit and resinous hop coming to the tongue. While slightly unbalanced it is good and hoppy, so if you are looking for something of the like, then give it a go.
