Tap. Semi-hazy brown with minimal white head. Aroma of caramel, pine hops and floral hops. Taste is sweet with bitter hops at the back end, Bitter, hoppy aftertaste. Medium bodied.

A-Dark copper with an off-white head

Smell- Malty with some sweetness. A hint of citrus too.

Taste- Malty with some caramel up front. Turning more bitter towards the back end. Some citrus and pine. More bitter than you would expect from the smell.

Mouthfeel- Medium carbonation

Overall- Pretty decent beer. Smell's great but a little bitter for my tastes.
