Pour is a nice deep amber orange. Dense tan head, but minimal. Fading quickly.

Nose is modest with some soft spice, orange, and a little hop. Nothing to massive here.

Taste is bursting with orange at first, followed quickly by absurdly dry and bitter hops. Lacking a bit in the depth department here. Again, a little hint of spice. Little sweet at the end too, almost a touch of maple or sweetened condensed milk.

Feel is just too thin. Leaves a little coating in your mouth, but the sip just feels hollow.

Big beer, but just not really well balanced. Juice is lost, hops are too big without the complexity to make it interesting. Mouth feel is the biggest let down. Oh well. On to another one...
