Pours a hazy honey orange with 2 finger white head. Smells floral, orange/grapefruit. Tastes of sweet orange blossom,grapefruit, sweet malt and pine. Silky medium/full body with medium carbonation. Leaves a great hop resin in mouth and lips and back of throat. Incredible beer.

Not sure how my prior rating was at 4.75. This beer was easily one of the best I have had to date.

The last of days arrived.
Your goodness I now deprived
Last of my splendid ale
Hazy, foamy, yet pale.
Thine lacing be most thick
But never fading soon or quick.
With head, bold as cream
caps this beer of mine dream.
Smells rich of hop and flower,
Within this beer doth tower,
With potency unknown
till confused drinker stumbles home.
Thine experience smooth,
For my gentle palate thou soothe.
Note of peach so strong
Thou make the ales tasteful song.
Can of silver thou shine
When opened; aromas slow time
Thine embrace of hops I recommend
For your can: a gift gods did send.

So yah, it's that good.
