Reviewed from notes. Poured this 12 oz can into a Sam Adams glass. Canned Feb 11 2013 and consumed not long after. The body was bright orange/copper and had yeasty bits in suspension. The off white head left minimal lacing.

The smell was like orange juice and bread dough. Crisp fall leaves. Simple and clean.

The taste was of orange rinds with a light bready sweetness. Juicy and so flavorful - I could drink this all day! There was a nice lingering bitterness that dried out leaving me drinking this one way too fast.

The mouthfeel was a bit slick with an understated carbonation. Medium body. Solid and worthy of the glowing reputation.

In a teku

A- cream-colored foamy head two fingers thick. Cloudy orange/amber body with residue floating around and no visible carbonation. 4

S- light citrus, lemongrass, grapefruit peel, sweet malt. 4

T- considerably sweet and malty, like oatmeal almost, but then a dose of grapefruit breaks through. I suspect some of the hop aroma and flavor have faded. Tough to know since there's no canned date here. 4

M- medium-bodied, malt-heavy, with a mild, pleasant bitterness. The finish is semi-dry and lingers with both sweet and bitterness. 4

Overall, it's good but I still am not convinced I've ever had this beer fresh enough to be blown away. 4
