Cakes (380) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2011
Has a nice rich orange w/ frothy white head. Citrus and lemongrass w/ a hint of copper in the nose. Medium bodied w/ slight stickiness, but no real malt balance. Rather harsh, with a bitter snap.

Pours orangish gold with incredible clarity. Aroma is very fruity. Lots of orange and grapefruit. Taste is citrusy and astrigent, with a wallop of spiciness at the end that lingers.
