F: Creamy and slightly oily

On tap at First Mile in York, PA. Pours a hazy gold with a thin white head. Initial impression is juicy pineapple, mango, and lemon, with a nice touch of caramel malt to smooth things out. Mouthfeel is creamy, smooth, and sticky. Carbonation is light. Finish is juicy and rich, with a lingering citrus aftertaste. Very good, but not what I would consider sessionable.

Pure silk.
Heavy orange.
The boozyness comes through on the aftertaste.
Screwdriver replacement for brunch.

Best mouth feel beer ive had. Flavor good, but not as distinctive as treehouse or Trillium. Top notch overall.

Mostly hazy apricot yellow with a creamy white collar leaving some light layers of lace.

Smell is dank cannabis, lemon and orange.

Taste is softly dank onion, orange, lemon, bark and cracker.

The medium-light body has a soft froth and a chalk dry finish.
