650 mL bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Deep orange and a little hazy. Nice white head on a vigorous pour. Lacing clings inside the glass. A layer of foam never fully settles.

Smell - Nutty and caramel malt. Sharp hop aroma. Grapefruit and lemon. Lemon gives it an acidic aroma.

Taste - Hop flavor is grassy and lemony. Lends a hint of tang. Toasty malts. Bready, a little nutty, and caramel sweetness. Finishes with minimal bitterness, but a lingering grassy hop flavor.

Mouthfeel - Very drinkable. Not a hop bomb by any means. Medium carbonation.

Overall - There isn't much a wow factor to this beer, but it is really nice. Drinkable and flavorful.
