Pours a hazy orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, floral, and citrus fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest, earth, floral, and slight herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice mix of citrus and floral hop characteristics all around.

Serving type: bottle.

22 oz bottle served in a wine glass in Oregon.

Excellent clarity and carbonation in an amber body. Crisp, near medium body.

Flavor: This has the hop load and bitterness of an IPA. Overly bitter and piney aftertaste with lingering grapefruit peel.

O: recommended for hop heads who favor piney hops and plenty of grapefruity bitterness.
