SpringsLicker (3121) - Tennessee, USA - APR 22, 2013
Hazy dark orange pour with a tall sticky off-white head. Earthy aroma of citrus rind and pine. Starts sweet with bitterness in the middle and a dry finish. Average as far as IPAs go, Better than many ’organic’ beers that I’ve tried.

Copper colour. Quite a lot of fresh pale malts in the aroma. Taste is soft, smooth, low carbonation, easy to drink. Floral hop and a light bittersweet citrusy flavour. Well balanced.
