A: Lovely golden orange, softly hazy color and a big white foamy head about 3 fingers high. Head fades in reasonable time to a bubbly 1/4 inch. Big splotchy lace on the glass.

S: Aroma is like opening a bag of Amarillo hop pellets. Very nice. Perhaps a little bit more soft and delicate than that. Aromas are sweet and juicy. Tangerine is big. Some grass, buttered biscuits... Very simple, clean, upfront, and fresh. Super nicely balanced.

T: Taste is loaded with flavor. Sweet, bold, and fruity. Bright tangerine and lemon explosion in your mouth. Nice biscuit like malts again. Very well balanced somehow with the huge amounts of hops. CITRUS.

M: Chewy, clingy and all sorts of swirlable. Carbonation is right on.

O: This is pretty fantastic!
