A: A brownish orange-amber. Light tan head on top, and the body is very cloudy.

S: Hoppy with perhaps a bit of honey and orange blossom. Floral notes and caramel, there is a good bit of sweetness in there. The finish to the aroma has something weird in it, maybe a touch cloying, or metallic.... I can't quite seem to pick it up.

T: Bitterness is prevelant, with some caramel notes in the back. The hops come out with citrus and floral notes. There is a hint of a flour note. Not sure what I am picking up in this beer, but it something I am not a fan of.. perhaps the hop combination in conjunction with the malty sweetness. Perhaps a little too floral?

M: Medium to Medium thick. Carbonation is moderate to low, there is almost a sticky hop oil left over in your mouth..

O: Overall it's decent, but there is something in the flavor I am not in love with. Not amazing, but certainly drinkable, and decent.

Pours a murky dark honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, and slight citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, earth, and subdued citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is quite malty and fairly boring for the style.

Serving type: bottle.
