UPDATED: DEC 10, 2009 Draft. Golden with a lasting white head. Hoppy aroma of peach and pine, and juicy sweet oranges. Dry and bitter with pine and orange flavour. Somewhat rough high-alpha hop bitterness, and a beautiful lasting fresh hop aftertaste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It is hazy, bronze-golden with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of spruce, peach and other fruits, citrus and caramel. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of caramel, citrus (mostly oranges), peach, melon, caramel and a dry, refreshing and just-right bitterness in the finish. It is very well-balanced and very delicious.
