Bright orange-amber color with a minimal head consisting of just a trace of fine bubbles on the surface.
The aroma is a bit shy, showing some tangerine and grapefruit. The flavor combines these fruity notes with spicy pine, overlying a prominent sweet honey base. A mellow bitterness builds and finishes with a mild peppery character.
Full-bodied with low carbonation, leading to a heavy mouthfeel. The hop flavors are quite nice but fight to keep ahead of a booziness and an overall sweetness.
