On tap at HOTB. Pours a clear reddish orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma is of floral/herbal hops, tea leaves, some citrus and caramel. Taste is bitter mostly. Medium body and medium carb. This was just tapped when I bought it but it tastes like it could be a few (2-3) months old.

Growler from the source. Pour is a dark copperish amber with a small amount of white head. Nose has some grain up front, lots of hops, a bit of resinous hops dominate but citrus and grapefruit make an appearance. Taste is a bit boozy and sweet, lots of hop presence, candied oranges, hop resin, citrus. Moderately carbonated, smooth feel, decent body.
