look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A: Pours a moderately hazy dark golden with amber highlights, capped by a finger and a half of frothy eggshell colored head. Retention is moderate as it settles slowly, leaving light lacing down the glass.
S: Massive citrus presence upfront with a big burst of grapefruit and orange, followed by moderate pine and some light spices. Lightly toasted biscuits and caramel provide an understated background.
T: Hops up front with pine taking the lead along with moderate citrus. The hop profile isn't as clearly defined as in the nose and while it's strong and provide bitterness, it's definitely lacking a bit compared to the aroma. Some light caramel sweetness comes in near the background before giving way to a pine resin finish.
M: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation, feels a touch too thick.
D: Between the slightly thick feel and long, resinous finish, it's a definite sipper.

On Draft at Meddlesome Moth. Served in a tulip glass.
A- Copper. Little head that dissapeared quickly. Very little lacing. Clear as day
S - I'm getting caramel and citrus
T - Candied sugar and bitterness blend well
M - Smotth. No alcohol burn
This tasted better the more it warmed up. I'd definitely let it sit a bit before drinking.
Serving type: on-tap
