L - candied orange evening sunset glow. Big, course bubbles in the head. Fragile. You can see the beer through it like shining a flashlight through your palm.

S - heavy dose of sugary hops. Toasted bread and grain. Dark orange and pineapple.

T - surprisingly hoppy and grassy, given the aroma. Bright orange candy hops leap out of the glass and assault the back of the mouth with bitterness. Dry, cardboardy earthiness and a tingling lemon. Miled acetone towards the end. Really quite bitter!

F - the coarse bubbles are a bit distracting as my lips enter the drink, but those quickly subside. Initial feel is smooth and thick, but after passing the liquid around in my mouth a bit foams it up good.

O - it's strong and to the point. A bit too hoppy and the flavors can taste a bit stale, but it's by no means a bad beer. Not the sugary juice bomb I was expecting.
