Truly surprised. A nice spring (pun intended) grassy citrusy taste. Very evenly hopped, smooth but you can taste the hops. Good from first drink to last. I got this in a pick 6 and will buy this where I find it.

[Appearance: 4.0] The result of the pour is a honey-like opaque dark orange brew topped by a very white head that begins at one finger, settles only slowly, and ends the session with a cap of foam that deposits stringy lace on the glass.
[Aroma: 3.5] The aroma presents some earth with underlying grains and plenty of leaf with a pithy edge to it. Some candied sweetness rides with the bitterness.
[Flavor: 3.75] Hops bitterness is deeper and more pronounced, with a lot more perfume and leaf along with herbal notes to it. It's still accompanied by sweetness, this time more distinctly caramel, and some citrus fruits contributing as much peel and zest as anything. Grains and acidity reach into the finish, with a dryness hitting mid-way and lingering long.
[Mouthfeel: 4.25] This has the big brightness and zing of an IPA with lots of texture, crisp and biting but with lots of fluffy creaminess rolling on the palate. It works with a certain acidity and dryness, which might otherwise clash.
