The beer produced a 2 finger off-white head. Nice lacing. Beer color is hazy, medium copper.

The aroma is of citrus, and bread. It's similar the juicy fruit gum - the bread.

The taste is similar, but with some sweetness, and a decent hop bitterness. Medium mouth-feel, and carbonation.

Delicious! Easy drinking enough to have several.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a DH IPA glass.

A: Dark golden hue. Pours a 2 finger, foamy, white head. Pervasive, continually rising effervescence. Settles quickly but not completely. Thick foam blanket and a thick beer ring. Thick, pervasive lacing.

S: Hops, orange citrus, nut shells, pine resin.

T: Hops, bitter pecan shells, pine straw, and a bit of malt. Floral.

M: Syrupy and thick. Malty character. Bitter hop finish.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is really good. Dark hue, lots of effervescence, thick foamy head, thick persistent lacing. Nose hoppy, orange, nuts, and pine resin. Hoppy and malt bitterness with a distinct floral character. Overall, this is a really good quaff.
