Had on tap at Max's in Baltimore.

Appearrance: hazy orange, just barely off white head covers the top. Pretty good lacing.

Smell: doesn't hit as hard as the taste. Very floral, bit of malt in the back, orange zest and pine.

Taste: straight citrus and pine, hardly any malt background.

Mouthfeel: very slick from the hop resins. low carbonation level but nice.

Drimkability: the hops are a little abbrassive, and pungent. I like this beer, the citrus pine hop overload is very nice.
