Poured from a 1pt. 6oz. bottle into a Harpoon brewery snifter.

The color is a deep copper with a few dark gold highlights. It is cloudy and has a a thick, two fingers of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.

The smell has a bright orange rind aroma that was freshly peeled. There is also a sweet tangerine aroma in the nose as well.

The taste is a bit of a surprise. Expected bitterness right at first onset of the taste but I get a carbonated rush of malts over my tongue that gives way to a citrus fruit tang that seems float onto my taste buds instead of meeting them head on with spiked bitterness. There is a tangerine flavor there with lemon peel mixed in that floats down and leaves a subtle aftertaste that gives more sweetness before wearing off.

The feel of this beer is smooth with a nice drinkable feel and is medium bodied. The bitterness is there but seems to be one of the most mellowed hoppy beers. The feel seems to be in a butter zone of where the flavor seems to be spot on but the bite is no longer there.
