Poured a nice golden color with a tiny white head. It had a lot of carmal malts and hops aromas. Sweet and malty with a decent hop taste to balance it out. Very drinkable with a smooth finish.

Gift from southern Johnny. WOW! A beautiful hazy orange pour with a nose of grapefruit, pine and orange peel. A sweet malt, piney taste. Blended perfect with a crisp hoppy finish. Great.
