I got this for free off a Florida Instagram follower of mine (my IG is StStrange). It was canned in January so it isn't fresh.

Pours a nice copper/orange with a solid inch of head. Moderate lace retention.

The smell is muted grapefruit and caramel. Orange rind around the middle, citrus to finish.

Taste is caramel and grapefruit up front. Nice blood orange in the middle. Cumquat aftertaste. All a little mellow and the caramel is too up front. Goes down smooth.

Like Pliny, this beer must be best fresh. The one I had, four months old, but still good. I would absolutly love to have this brew with less than a month on it.
