A - Big bone white three finger head with some massive crater-forming bubbles on top. The brew itself is a very slightly hazy coppery "new penny" hue and has quite a few fine bubbles rushing to the top. As the fluffy head settles, it leaves tons of fine eggshell lace on the glass, and the head never dips below a finger while a swirl brings up a solid two fingers.
S - Firm and fresh citrus and pine hop aromas. The citrus component leans heavily toward the sweet mandarin orange range, while the piny scents are more subdued. There is not much of a malt backbone other than the sugary nuances of that canned mandarin orange syrup aroma.
T - Again, big canned mandarin orange flavors dominate the palate with extremely sweet citrus flavors. The hops seem even less piny and even more sweetly citric here. The malt presence is much more apparent in the mouth than in the nose...it's a dead ringer for the sugary syrup that's left in the can of mandarin oranges when the fruit is gone...it even has a bit of that metallic flavor.
M - Medium bodied with a low level of carbonation and a dusty off-dry finish. The mandarin orange flavor lingers on for several tasty minutes after swallowing.
D - There isn't a damn thing wrong with this beer. I expected it to be a bit more "in your face" given the outlandishness of DFH's other brews, but this is eminently drinkable and quite tasty, if a bit sweetish.
