Pours a murky orange color with a dense white head. Rather heavy on the citrus peel aromas, particularly orange. A nice floral quality along with a hint of pine in the background. A touch of sweet malt is also there. A bit of bready malt up front, quickly followed by orange peel and a solid floral and perfume quality. A moderate bitterness on the finish.

Served from a bottle. Not sure what size, fat, maybe 16 oz?

Wow. This beer is a shocker for me. It's extremely good. Pours a honey amber in crystal clear barware with a confident pillowy fluff head 2" in height, settles slowly and clings well to the glass. The smell is reserved and subdued, with only the faintest hint of citrus and grass on the nose.

Taste. Holy mecca of beer. Amazing hops taste of black currant, raspberry jam and slight green banana peel with only the gentleness of noble bitterness from the hops. This beer was very heavily hopped using either extremely late additions, whirlpooling or dry hopping. It has incredible hops flavor with only the softest hops bitter from the noble NZ hops. Holy crap. I love it. All the flavor and 1/8th of the bitter of a hops bomb. I'm in love.
