Murky light orange color with a bit of a fluffy white head. Aroma is a little rubbing alcohol and not all that appetizing. Unfortunately this comes through pretty strong in the flavor as well. The body is nice and big, a little bit of citrus hops working along the way as well. Nice sweetness. Only thing is is this forges into that hop profile that I do not care for too much. Good balance otherwise.
