On tap @ Bulls & Bears. Poured a sightly hazy orange/bronze color with a small but thick pillowy white head. Nice lacing as well.
Aroma is one dimensional but a nice citrus hop smell throughout.
taste is moderatley sweet. Orange and grapefruit flavors. Hoppy and a bitter finish.
It's chewy with a resiny finish that lingers with a bit more bitterness than the first few sips.
I like this better than Flying Dog's Simcoe but not quite on the level of the El Dorado.

Serving type: on-tap

Bottle into glass

A - Clear golden color with a medium sized off-white creamy head with good retention, slowly recedes to a thin film on top. Leaves heavy lacing

S - Orange, Grapefruit, booze, light malt

T - Grapefruit and lemon, then orange, bread, alcohol bite, sweetness, and a little caramel malt, got very boozy as it warmed

M - Heavy and creamy mouthfeel, moderate/low carbonation

O - An interesting and enjoyable brew, a little on the sweet side. Began to taste a lot like booze as it warmed up
