Bottled in 2011
Poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance- Pours smooth and vibrant orange as fine particulates swirl in the current. Bubbles rise swiftly to create a white head about 0.75’’ thick which recedes back to the body, leaving no lacing. Held up to a light you can see the body evolved into a deep orange color.

Smell- This beer comes on citrusy, malty with a small hint of caramel; a reminder of warmer days. There is a lingering undertone of burnt sugar. The scent is almost invigorating.

Taste- Complex instantly comes to mind. Low carbonation allows for instant taste penetration of citrus and coriander with some other (as of now) unidentifiable spices. It finishes light and grassy and continues to linger on with a certain mild sweetness.

Mouthfeel- A fast carbonation sizzles on the roof of the mouth then disappears without a trace. Smooth and surprisingly light bodied.

Overall- Fantastic. Smells refreshing, tastes refreshing, finishes refreshing. I’m honestly surprised they would retire such a great brew. Definitely has a complex palette but really no negatives – everything blends very well. Great in winter and I imagine it is even more amazing in summer. 7.0% ABV keeps me content and makes the price point right on ($10.99 USD per bottle). Recommend for anyone beer-curious. Will buy more bottles to store for later use.
