Bottled. A hazy orange beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is sweet spicy combined with light notes of malt. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of citrus and straw, leading to a dry bitter finish. I’m not overly impressed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange-amber color. Good hopping, powerful and resiny, a bit fuity (bitter oranges); but the sweetness and malt flavor are not enough for me; there is also a light vegetables touch. Good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a slightly unclear golden body with an off-white head diminishing rather quickly. Hop-driven aroma leaving room for the sugary malts. Pine and resin. Sure nice, but a bit gentle maybe. Very sugary flavor, sure on the malty side, with pine and resin. Full body. Long finish with sugary malts, resin and pine. Delicious, but not in the west coast way.
