Poured from a 12oz glass into a new belgium globe. Pours a nice dark orange color with a finger of white head. The aroma is very citrus-y, along with some grapefruit and breaded malts. The taste hits you with the bitterness of the hops, and balances out with the malts on the back end. The mouthfeel is somewhat sticky with medium carbonation, and has a dry finish.

A quality beer from Troegs, this is my first Troegs and I'm impressed. One of the best ambers I've had.

Poured in pint glass

Head 1/4", after it settled.

I'm new to reviews but here it goes...Smooth with a short citrus note. Not too overwhelming but a perfect end to a ridiculously good beer. I've been pleased with the way each troegs I pour has a great head. I'm glad they've moved to Hershey!
