Tasted in a 16 oz snifter from draft at Consume on December 20, 2016. Look is cloudy dark gold with a thin head and spotty lacing. Smell is pleasant citrus blossom and bitter hops. Taste is bitter lemon rind, earthy and bits of pale malt flavors. Feel is medium in body with a slightly dry and bitter finish.
