Poured from the bottle into a pint glass.

The color is a bright orange/gold with two fingers of foamy white head and good amount of lacing is left on the glass.

The smell has a bit of citrus fruit flavor. The hops elevate this a bit while giving off a bit a tart aroma that could be shaping up to hit hard with bitter hop flavor.

The taste is piney at first with splash of pine, and some grassy hops that push the bitterness up a bit. Some hints of mango and tangerine reveal themselves as the bitterness wears down. Some malty biscuit flavor comes out before a slight twang at the end.

The feel of this beer is medium bodied and is really drinkable just as most Jack’s Abbey beers are. Crisp and refreshing this beer goes down easy.
