A: Golden orange with two fingers of white head. Nice lacing.

S: Piney and herbal hop aromas. Hint caramel and honey.

T: Caramel sweetness upfront with some honey undertones and some pine in the background.

M: Medium body. Pretty sweet.

O: I think either my palate has evolved over the last year or this beer has less hop pungency and flavor then the year before, not as good as I remember.

This was bottled in January 2013.

A- nice orange color, small white head that doesn't last long. Just beautiful orange, what a beer should look like.

S- even with the age on it the hops are still forward. Citrus and pine, fresh orange peel, a little honey at the end, but pretty much all hops, great!

T- follows the nose, big hops, big orange peel flavor, citrus and piney notes, big grapefruit, not as bitter as it was when I had it fresh but still bitter enough, this beer is just as good with a little age on it. The honey is there but really doesn't do too much besides create a great balance with the strong hops.

M- very smooth, medium body on it, goes down nice.

O- just a great brew, you really can't do any better. This is a two hearted ale (one of my favorite beers) on steroids. Just so well balanced and huge huge hops, which I love!
