A - Pours a dark amber with light hues around the edges with an eggshell head.

S - Light hops, bready malts and sweet esters.

T - It's like a mix of bitter/hops/toast/malts. There's some orange peel and a mild sweetness.

M - On the full side of light with medium carbonation.

O - I was hoping for more bitterness, but was only getting light hops. It's still an easy drinker with a clean finish.

Served in Chimay chalice.

Appearance-
Deep orange with a hint of red.

Smell-
Delightful light hop aroma, bubblegum and pine.

Taste-
A great entry, and interesting for Three Floyds. The use of the bitter hops enhance the light but present buttery malt.

Mouthfeel-
Good standard carbonation, nice and refreshing.

Overall-
Great beer, glad I tried it. Good if you are in the mood for a bitter hit, but not a full blown Stone beer.
