Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a hazy medium golden amber with a half finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of orange citrus, apricot, mild caramel, slightly vegetal. Flavor is mild caramel malt, orange family citrus juice and rind, apricot and grassy hops. Finishes with citrus rind and citrus hop bitterness. Medium bodied with light creaminess, nice mouth feel. There is a light Belgian influence here that may be Belgian yeast or very light Belgian spices, but overall n unusual amalgam of flavors that don't quite fit together and a finish that is slightly astringent. In its favor is a nice blend of orange citrus flavors and light apricot. Interesting but doesn't quite come together.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

12 oz bottle poured into A lager glass.

A - Hazy yellow-gold. Two inch white head that keeps retention throughout. Nice lacing.

S - Citrus and pine.

T - Slightly sweet fruit and malt ends in an unpleasant bitterness. Almost like ashes.

M - Medium/full

O - This is how it was after five minutes. The first few sips were tremendously hoppy. Let it sit a few minutes to savor it fully. Didn't care for the bitter aftertaste.
