Poured into a pint glass from a bottle. Pours semi cloudy straw orange with a small white head. Smells of citrus hops with very slight pineyness. Tastes of sweet grain with really nice citrus hops. Beer is light bodied and extremely drinkable. Overall a very good beer.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of 04/18/17. Sampled on February 4, 2017.

The pour is orange-amber in color with a modest white head that fades and laces. Moderate clarity.

The aroma is vibrant with orange, fruity, and citrus zing with a slightly more muted grainy white bread character.

Around a medium body but it has a nice tangy texture too.

Same orange and tangerine, citrus zest in the flavor with a modest bitterness to finish. A good way to enjoy Winter.

Not bad, but unexciting. Smell is weak. I could drink a lot of this, but probably wouldn't pursue it. I do like the bitterness. Probably good with food, as it isn't overpowering.
