Appearance: orange in color with a thick head that slowly falls to a thick surface covering. Thick lace develops on the glass too.

Smell: only some soft hop bitterness is detectable by the nose.

Taste: caramel, orange, grapefruit, pear, and a decent bitterness are the main flavors. Alcohol is well hidden.

Mouthfeel: crisp to start, less crisp and a touch dry at the finish. Long lasting bitter aftertaste here.

Overall: this beer was decent but nothing to rave about. A slightly above average higher ABV IPA that is easy to drink.
