Orange color with blond hue. Light but distinctive malt body and a zesty citrus hop character. Grapefruit, orange, mango notes coming through. A pleasing and clean finish that's dry and not bitter.

Into an imperial pint at the Town Hall Tap
This is quite good (and softens the blow of learning that the Marmalade Sky will now only be a seasonal). Pretty smooth with some biscuity malts, and then the Simcoe hops build some bitterness and strength -- never really too bright or biting, but builds right through the end, with a nice and pleasant bitterness.

The American version is much better than the earlier British. If the Masala Mama ever runs out, this is a nice backup.
