Poured from the bottle into an elongated tulip glass.
Opaque orange glowing tangerine body color. Thick head and enormous even off a slow pour. Large retention and thick clumping. Very aggresive, a little overboard, but still impressive.
Thick doughy malts. Lots of bakery smells and doughy yeast. Light caramel and a slight floral hop angle. Not particularly hoppy or hop forward.
Palate is very watery. Lots of seltzery feel and perrier like carbonation. Wet and mineraly. Virtually no malt presence or chew. No caramel and more importantly no hops. Weak. Wet. Lifeless. Aftertaste brings a little taste of hop bitterness, but it is indistinct, and makes the beer come across as slightly hoppy perrier.
Overall even with no bottling date or the possibility of faded old hops, this brew just isn't even getting the basics right. No malt backbone or sweetness, very dissapointing since it is an impressive looking beer.

Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. A foamy latticework of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with a medium hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
