Pours a slightly hazy orange peel color with a 1" cream colored head. The head recedes leaving scant spots of lacing in my glass. It eventually falls to a thick film across the surface of the beer. The aroma is of tangerine, a touch of grassy hops, some malt sweetness. In the taste I detect a touch of honey sweetness, and a bit of grain. The hops don't jump out as much as expected, they are subtle and grassy. Towards the end of the sip I get some of that tangerine flavor from the smell. The aftertaste is generally sweet, but it leaves a slight bitterness. The body of the beer is thicker than average, with light carbonation. This beer has a decent amount of complexity, but it is deceivingly subtle.
