Pours a light and very hazy copper with lots of particulate. Fairly aggressive pour resulted in a three finger head.

Smells of orange and pine with just a hint of pineapple and melon.

Better tasting than it smells. Hits hard with orange, tangerine, and apricot with a nice bitterness. The sweetness lingers on afterwards with a bit of a grassy aftertaste and finishes pretty dryly.

Overall, I like it! Will drink it again.
