Served on-tap at First Street Draught House in Winston-Salem, NC

A: Moderate aromas of dark orange to amber in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some dark golden yellow highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall foamy off-white head that quickly reduces to a mottled extremely thin film covering about 50% of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit hops followed by some moderate aromas of slightly sweet caramel malts.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of slightly sweet caramel malts and moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit hops with a hint of floral/herbal hops as well. Moderate amounts of lingering bitterness are present. Also, there are light hints of alcohol in the finish.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness and alcohol warming in the finish.

O: Enjoyable and satisfying but a touch higher in ABV than I prefer but still a very enjoyable beer. As a former Bostonian that relocated to NC, this was a must purchase for me when I saw it on tap this afternoon.

Taste follows smell with moderate lingering bitterness. Hints if alcohol.
