Pours a deep coppery orange color with a firm white head about an inch thick that leaves a nice lace on the glass. Aromas consist of sweet caramel, some toasty malts, and a bit of zesty hop. Initial flavors consist of a bit of citrus flavoring followed by a wide arrange of malts which leave a multitude of flavors ranging from toffee, to biscuit, some caramel sweetness, and a doughy bread like flavor. There is also a nice estery yeast flavor in the mix which really adds some complex flavors to the brew. The finish is quite citrusy and zesty from a nice strong hop finish. Overall this brew is light to medium bodied with a refreshingly crisp carbonation that is almost biting on the tongue.

Hazy copper color with a medium head which recedes quickly and leaves some nice lacing. Slightly sweet malty aroma with some herbal hops. Nice malty flavor with some interesting notes- a bit buttery on my first sip, perhaps some dark fruit. Medium to full bodied and very well carbonated. Pretty good beer. A bit heavier than it seems at first but still quite drinkable.
