Amber orange color with a thin head that disappear quickly.
Nice aroma with predominant notes of unused tea bags, oranges, a bit of rye and light wood.
Citrusy flavor with notes of grapefruit, biscuit and toasted malts, resin, pines, tea bags, rye, oranges and lemon. Quite dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with perfect carbonation.
It tastes like a citrusy APA with a rye twist, not otherwise, just to spice things up a bit. Though, it increases through out the degustation. Really well crafted beer that is worth trying.
