12oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color. Three fingers of white head. Lacing takes the form of a thin film that coats the glass. Sweetness in the scent initially and then piney. But also citrus after the beer sat for awhile. Predominant feature of the taste was the bitter aftertaste until it was almost done and hat sat awhile. Then a much better sweet and citrusy profile. Enjoyable and puzzling. (8.5)
