The beer pours a brilliantly clear orange with an ecru colored head. Scent consists of spices hops with some pine. Maybe a hint of fresh baked bread. Taste is centered around the hops, but they aren't particularly distinctive. Mildly bitter for the style. Alai piney in the taste. Finishes fairly dry with a touch of caramel and slight hop astringency. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with lively carbonation.

A good beer, but not very complex or compelling.
