A - The body is a thick pale amber colored haze with a one inch head on top. The medium tan colored head has some significant stamina. Great lacing too!

S - Round hops with brown sugar and a touch of spice.

T - Robust hops accompanied by pungent tangerine and thick, sweet malt.

M - Smooth to start and slightly coarse in the middle. There's a sticky head that begs to be washed, which is part of the reason this brew is so difficult to put down.

~ I'm extremely pleased with this brew. I went to the newly opened Great Dane in Wausau, Wisconsin with some friends last night and this was the first beer I ordered. I stuck with it the rest of the night and had to bring a growler home.
