Best by date of 5/11/12 my. My bad...missed that date on bottle

Appearance: This beer poured a real nice looking hazy orange color with an absolute huge white fluffy head. The head was a good four finger size and left a ton and I mean a TON of lacing behind. The head settles down to a light fluff floating on top of my beer. I love the color of this beer. It's very enticing to say the least.

Smell: Right off the bat orange peel smacks me in the face. It's like a sweet tangerine mixed with pineapple and grapefruit. This is followed by a piney and floral hop presence but I must mention that the hop nots are light on the nose. Very nice nose

Taste: Wow what a well balanced beer here. There is the slight hop bite mixed with orange and mango fruitiness. There is a breadiness and toasted character found in it also. I am also finding a caramel taste in it that seems to add a background sweetness that is super enjoyable!

Mouthfeel: I find this beer to be super creamy in the mouth. It almost feels as though I squirted whipped cream in my mouth and have that creamy feeling left behind. The carbonation is moderate at best and I believe this adds to the creamy feeling of this beer.

Overall: I true pleasure to drink this one. I mean I could sit back and put away quite a few of these. Not overly hoppy and not overly sweet or fruity either. Just an absolute perfect balance to be able to enjoy any time. I know this one was past it's prime according to the best by date but it's excellent IMO even three months past said date.

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

12 oz. bottle tried 5 Mar 2011. Served in the Bright Brewing shaker pint.

Large foamy tan head. Light carbonation. Clear dark amber in color. Aroma is a little fruity tart with some resin. Starts sticky hoppy sweet. Lots of resin. Almost a juicyfruit gum quality. Medium to light body, slightly noticeable ethanol. Finishes a bit sweet but the hop bitterness lingers.

Nicely balanced, easy to drink.
