BOD 9/26/14. Pours a slightly hazy orange, the same color as the can. World class head volume, retention and lacing.

Light nose of biscuit and a hint of grassy and floral hops. As it warms, a bit of orange is noted.

Medium body that approaches a creamy texture. Superb carbonation with a nice effervescence in the middle and a prickly rush in the finish.

The flavor profile is borderline outstanding. It is reasonably intense, slightly complex but is perfectly balanced. It begins with a nice blended flavor that slowly separates. Grassy hops lead then flow into a very mild bitterness. Under the bitterness is an orange flavored background. Biscuit malt proves a subtle balancing sweetness at the end of the middle. The finish has a ginger note that exhibits itself in both flavor and a lingering light spicy bitterness. The finish is dry and a ginger bitterness lingers.
