Poured a one finger head slightly browned egg shell white head. The beer was a copper orange color with elegant clarity. The smell is peppery and lemony with a backbone of dried mandarins. The flavor starts with a bright Bitterness that gives way to the sweet malt before fizzing into a piney dry finish. Very nice. Very classy.
