12oz bottle into tulip glass.
Pours a clear orange with reddish hue. Random single bubbles slowly rise to a creamy one finger head that slowly receeds to a thick ring of lacing.
Smell of tropical fruit with strong pine and a tangerine citrus. Has a sticky sweet, candy smell going on. A touch of wet earth as well.
Tastes of bright tropical fruits with sharp piney bitter and tart citris that bounces between red grapefruit rind and orange zest. Tart dry finish with lingering hop bitter and a kind of rye bread crust comes out as it warms.
Good medium body, creamy almost froth like mouthfeel. I feel like it does not reach it's full potential and kind of thins out at the end, not in a bad way just not as full as one would expect. There is a surprising light alcohol taste on the finish.
