Appearance: Nice work on the label from the folks at Smuttynose, it helps present what one should expect from this beer. It pours chunk ans thick into a low sustaining head. Color is rich orange and very clean, clear and pure.
Aroma: Big beautiful bouquet, comes to mind first. Very engaging hop nose and florally sweet like a tart candy.
Taste: Again, like on the nose a big flowery flavor but still exceptionally clean. Good consistent follow through with notes of citrus in the front and back.
Mouthfeel: On the lighter side for carbonation, and with a thick, sweet coating that somehow still leaves my mouth clean.
Drink: Am looking forward to this beer next year. I've heard the brewers are keeping guarded eyes on the few remaining bottles.
Serving type: bottle

3.59/5 rDev -6.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Bottle conditioned in 2014. 10.8% ABV.
Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Small chunks of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, wheat, caramel, toffee, wood, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour wheat, caramel, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop and wood bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a unique tartness in the flavor that I am not sure I have experienced in other beers of the same style.
