Decent beer with a clear gold color and great head. first thing I smell id=s malt. Taste hits you first with malty sweetness, than moves into the bitterness of hops and citrus, more citrus than hops. Finish is bitter and nice, and ends crisp with a touch of hop bitterness at the end. Overall, ok but expected a little more kick of the hops

A: pours a fairly clear copper with a dense white head, excellent lacing.

S: Bright orange peel hop aroma, with some bready caramel malt. Some wheat and Belgian type character.

T: Quick flash of caramel malt character overtaken by floral, citrus and bitter orange peel. Bright and slightly acidic flavor. hop forward brew that leans more toward bittering than aroma. Dry finish.

M: Moderate carbonation, some astringency and light body, a bit thin.

O: Not a bad beer. The bitterness is I the forefront with some floral hop notes. The malt flavor is short lived and is taken over by the hop bitterness. Overall, not bad. but I'd like to see more hop aroma.

No born on date.
Purchased on vacation at Wine Cheese & More at Chincoteague Island, VA.

Golden orange in color with a mounding 3 finger white head that recedes leaving almost snowflake-like lacing.

Pleasantly citric with a sweet malt backbone.

Disappointing. A bit of sweet malt and a hint of citrus, but it's all overshadowed by a harsh, nose scrunching bitterness. I think this first bottle, at least, is past it's prime.

Light to moderate in body with moderate syrup and a slightly harsh, oily burn in the throat,.

When I uncapped the bottle and took my first whiff, I thought uh-oh, this may be a skunk, but the aroma in the glass was much improved. The taste however, confirmed my earlier suspicions. Not a taste I would want to pay for again, but I'll have to give it another chance, and hope for a fresher bottle.
