Clear orange-gold pour with a foamy two-finger white head. Big citrusy aroma. Very bitter taste with lots of bright citrus flavors upfront. A nice juicy orange flavor stands out along with grapefruit, mango and pine. Can also taste some biscuit in the finish.

Nice malt and hop balance. Tastes like a double but the alcohol level is only 6.8. I will buy again!

Cloudy orange brew with a white head that leaves a bit of lacing. The smell is very bitter with some sweetness and fruit behind. The taste is slightly sweet with a little fruit and a ton of bitterness. Pretty solid beer.
