Pours a nice copper color with a one and a half finger head. The nose is mostly orange citrus with tropical notes. There's a good presence of caramel malt too. The flavor is nice. Very big malt presence, but it's balanced with strong hops. There is something peppery and a strong taffy flavor. Balance is the name of the game. Nice, thick mouthfeel. I could drink this all day.

A- Foamy head with sticky lacing
and a cloudy orange color
S- Smell of citrus and piney hops
T- I taste lots of bitterness, citrus and pine hops
F- Medium to full feel with bubbly carbonation
O- I consider this more of an IPA honestly. This brew is all about the hops. I would recommend if you are into big hops.

I've actually never tried this one before tonight. Here goes:

A: Adequate. Clear orange-amber that pours a nice white head. Leaves a ton of lacing as well. Carbonation very apparent.

S: Mediocre, but not bad Hops are good but somewhat muted. Can detect grapefruit and citrus. Not complicated, but still good. Also has a very adequate malt backbone - nice crystal and lightly-kilned malts.

T: Good. Light grapefruit and citrus followed by caramel malt. Feels nice and light, too.

M: Good carbonation and a mouthfeel of ample thickness.

O; Very solid beer. Surprised that I never had it until now.
