opaque burnt orange, frothy cream colored head, lots of thick scattered lace,
light sweet citrus aroma,
rich bready malt flavor balance by lots of citrus and herbal hops, the citrus grows and takes on a nice orange character, nice long bitter finish follows the hop flavor without detracting from it,

Draft. Pours a medium copper with a full white head. Excellent lacing. The aroma is a blend of piney, citrusy hops, and some malts. I initially was expecting a pure hop bomb, but that was not was I got. The initial taste is all hops. Very floral and citrusy, but then the malts kicked in to balance the beer out. Damn well put together beer. Based on opinions at a tasting, this should be their next bottled offering.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at brewpub. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Heavy sour citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium biiter citrus flavor with a medium bittersweet smooth finish of moderate duration. This is a good drinkable brew.
