Pours a deep orange amber with a medium off white lasting head, some lacing. Aroma and Taste is of sweet caramel malt, yeast, floral citrus hops, some orange peel and fruity esters and flavor come thru. Palate is a medium body, mild carbonation with a nice combination of sweet malt and floral hops balance. Finishes with a good caramel malt background, fruity, yeasty, some orange peel and good floral hops balance. A very good, flavorful and enjoyable brew.

Pours deep orange and with a shine from clarity. A fat head of off white foam finally settles so you can drink. Stream of bubbles to look at while you wait. Nose is orange. Orange peel, orange ripeness, fruit sweetness and tropical backnotes. A bit of subtle and earthy pine This beer is about 3 moths old so if the pine isi stronger in yours that could be why. Taste is wonderful .light malt, practically invisible on the palate except for some nuttiness. Once the palate is indoctrinated the nutty flavor subsides and you are left with only hop fruits. Orange and more orange, the ripe orange, the pith the bitter seed. Authentic and light in the drink. Finishes with a bitter than deserves your attention. This bitter while earthy and while moderate actually scoops up the entire beer in it's aftertaste and leaves it at the back palate .
I'll have another one of these. You could drink this beer all day.
