Poured from a 22 oz bomber in to a Ballast Point tumbler.

A- Pours a finger and a half of white suds that settle to a thin covering over top of a completely transparent orange body.

S- Bright citrus and some toasty malts.

T- It didn't exactly wreck my palate like I expected, but was rather balanced. Cracker and bread-like character balances the bitterness.

M- Medium-full and a little slick. Decent carbonation slippery on the way down like oil. The alcohol heat is only slightly noticeable.

O- Pretty solid offering. Wouldn't mind another one bit.
