Appearance - Bright Orange Caramel color with light foamy head.

Smell - Lots and lots of citrus with some piney finish to the smell.

Taste - Wow is this one nice and smooth. Nice bitter start and a smooth citrus finish

Mouthfeel - This one was very smooth and almost tasted like it was on nitro.

Overall - This beer was a great. I was happily surprised with the trade and would love to get another sometime soon.
