Poured from a bomber into a heavy clear glass mug.

Proud multi-finger head of frothy off-white foam. Color is a pretty and clear amber.

Aroma is strong hops and a little citrus and a strange scenting of like vulcanized rubber? Secret ingredient? Nah, must just be the wet hops.

Terrific mouthfeel - with a tingly lingering very bitter citrus aftertaste. Easy to enjoy with a burger or steak and fries, but not so easy straight up with no meal chaser.

The wax seal aroudn the cap is a nice touch, but purpose? Just cosmetic? Meh.

a- a solid orange and copper look with an expected fresh hop ale look

s- very fresh hop present trending on the caramel and earthy side. Prickly sweet and spicy theme lingers towards the end

t- great wet hop flavors arise in a caramel malt taste with some solid bitterness. A good fresh hop profile

m- good feel with the right carbonation

o- not the best fresh hop ale out there but wow is it fresh
