Dark orange amber colour, slight haze, small tan head. Nose of hops, malt, caramel, vanilla, fruity passion fruit, grapefruit, floral tones. Flavour is sweet malts with a hoppy bitterness, fruity hoppy flavours. Bitter finish.
Good hop background to the malts. Balanced. I’m quite fond of this one, would love to see it become more available.
