A-Very well filtered translucent beer. Amber with an orange hue. Pinky width white head. Decent lacing.

S-Awesome smell that draws you in. Citrus notes of plum, orange/tangerine/clementine rind. Floral earthy notes spread throughout. Very nice blend of aromas in this one!

T-The taste is as good as the smell. Those hop notes break right through. Orange, plum, grapefruit with earth back tones to bring down the citrus forwardness of this brew. Very well balanced with the malt bill. The hops come in than they are followed by the caramel, sourdough bread crust that blend beautifully together. Finishes slightly bitter and leaves a great aftertaste.

M-The body could have a little more depth to it. A little thinner than I would like for this style. Well carbonated. You can feel the carbonation on your tongue after you have taken a sip.

O-An excellent beer by an excellent brewery. The aroma and taste of this beer is great. Only real complaint about this beer is that I wish it was around 5% abv so I could drink more of these!
