Bottle.
Appearance: orange. Clear. Medium-thick, foamy head. Sticky lacing.
Smell: light citrus. Light floral. Light malt.
Taste: easy on the malt. Maybe some light roasted notes. Grapefruit rind hop flavor. Herbal and pine on the bitterness.
Overall: well balanced. Easy to drink. Will buy again. Easy to find, easy to drink.
