On tap at Mad Fox. Served in a pint glass.

Pours a caramel-amber color with a two-finger off-white head and some sticky lacing on the way down. Thin cap throughout. The nose brings forward a bit of light bready malt plus some moderate caramel and a bit of toast. Hops are present -- some citrus and pine, but nothing overwhelming. Lots of balance with the malt. Taste balances malt and hops without any really taking over. A bit too much malt for my tastes. Nice bitterness in the finish, which complements the chewy body of the beer. Pretty good brew, but I'll stick with Orange Whip.
