Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass. Nice frothy head that laces the glass as you sip. The beer pours a nice copper color. Smell is more pine that citrus. The taste feels off. A little chemical before the palate adjusts. Not a bad double/imperial but not great either.

Pours an effervescent amber with 2 fingers of cream colored head. Serious lacing & good head retention

S: Breadyness, & a little boozeyness that stands taller as this warms & orange peel

T: Biscuitty malt, pineyness & astringency up front. More of the same as this warms, some tangerine peel, pineyness, & dryness, plus more biscuitty malt/dryness & then astringency. Maltyness, woody hops, tangerine peel & leafy hops in the finish

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, okay balance, could do without the astringency

Not bad, but doesn't really stand out in a crowded field, glad I got to try it...
