look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz : tulip

Hazy, coppery orange with a foamy, creamy white head.

The nose and taste follow the same profile of a sweet, caramel malt base highlighted by spicy, herbal , lightly citrusy hops.

Medium+ body, foamy carbonation.

Not a typical Winter Warmer but a well done, enjoyable one.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle in a standard pint glass.

A- Pours a hazy golden-orange color with a durable 1-plus finger head that leaves abundant fat-ring lacing. There's some small bubble carbonation visible through the haze.

S- At first, it smells like a good retro lager. After some breathing and warming, the candied apple and caramel aromas make their way. Some citrus hop aroma fights for equal billing, but the sugary fruit dominates.

T- Citrus and earthy hops balance the caramel malt and apple fruit flavors. There's enough orange citrus for kick.

M- Medium body with a firm feel thanks to the light carbonation that works well here. I get the hops and bitterness first with the fruit, primarily apple, on the end.

O- Warming and inviting brew. The 58 ibus and7.6% abv are matched well. I'd like more aroma next time.
