look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Consumed on December 30th, 2013 at the brewery. Menu notes 6.9% ABV.

Appearance: slightly cloudy medium orange/yellow. Fine white head.

Citrusy, resiny aroma.

Flavor is surprisingly sweet: malty with orange notes. The big hop flavor promised by the nose is muted.

Some carbonation tingle. Mouthfeel is slightly thin.

Not especially memorable.

Pours dark amber in color with a slight orange hue. Thin half finger white frothy head that has good retention.

Smell is surprisingly malty in a good way. Malt is grainy with notes of honey and caramel and is followed by a nice moderate herbal hop presence.

Taste is really nice some floral hop flavor are forward. Malt follows and has bold grainy flavors along with a nice honey like sweetness and more floral residual hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel is good light and crisp. Very drinkable and medium bitterness and a light stickiness.
