Pours a gold orange with a medium white lasting head. Aroma is some floral pine hops notes upfront slowly mellowing to a citrus orange fruity essence, caramel malt sweetness. Flavor same as aroma sweet caramel malt with moderate citrus grapefruit hops bitterness. A medium body, smooth, good carbonation on the palate. Finishes with a good caramel malt sweetness, there some orange marmalade like fruitiness, with a citrusy grapefruit bitterness for balance. Overall a tasty and pleasant drinking IPA.
