Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden/orange color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of tropical fruits, malts. Taste is fruity, sweet, a strong malt backbone, very little bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but if you are looking for a hop bomb, this ain't it.

Hazey Amber color with a nice little head on it. Nose is very citrus forward with nice floral and malty notes. Taste strong orange, tangerine, mango and hints of piney hops with caramel and toffee. Lingers nicely on the palate. For the 93 IBUs I expected it to be more hoppy but it's was quite balanced. Very good beer considering wine is their main business. However I prefer more hops in the taste.
