Orange yellow in color; almost copper, but not quite. Forms a modestly sized, bubbly off-white head. Decent retention and some spotty lacing. The aroma is quite strong, very dank almost to the point of being moldy, with lots of resin and citrus pith. The taste is likewise strong. There is a strong underlying citrus juiciness along with sweet tangerine, bitter orange zest, and papaya. However, there is also a competing flavor. Sort of resiny, sort of earthy, sort of mildewy. It's odd. Body is on the heavier side of medium. Moderate carbonation. Mild to moderate bitterness.
Well, you can't say this beer isn't packing flavor.

12oz from the recent batch into a teku.

A: Pours a brassy orange with a nice off-white head.

S: Very juicy, resinous nose. Lots of grapefruit, sticky mango, sap, pine.

T: Bitterish, maple, tangerine, dry and leafy, big biscuit behind.

M: Medium-bodied with mild creamy carb.

O: Definitely remains on the East Coast side of things with plenty of resinous bitterness, but has a nice juiciness also.
