Pours a relatively clear straw colored ale with a nice amount of cream colored foam. Good lacing.

The aroma is slightly dank, orange, medicinal, tangerine and light cedar. Interesting smells here.

The taste is very much hoppy, citrusy and spicy. Big grapefruit rind-like mouthwatering aftertaste. There is a big malt wash as it warms but it is very hop forward as it should be based on the name.

Overall I dug this session. Interesting flavors and complexity abound. Worth finding to see what the world of varietals is all about. Good stuff.

12 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a big frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is bready malt with tropical fruit hops with slight floral notes.

The flavor is biscuity malt with a little sweet resiny fruit and a grassy metallic hop bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, I didn't really care for the flavors.
