It’s more bitter rather than floral and has a crisp, clean finish.

A red orange pour with small white head. Slight orange and hop aroma with biscuit smells as well. Very dry beer. Upfront hop bitterness with ever so slight citrus notes. Finish is a lasting bitterness with strong malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Citrusy and a slight malty aroma with a cloudy red orange color and little white head. A sweet taste with a slight bitter almost tart taste. Crisp and medium bodied. Bitter malty aftertaste. An alright hot day beer. But not great. Not the best job ninkasi

maxwelldeux (4343) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear amber color with a moderate pillowy off-white head on it. Nose has a nice little bit of floral tones to it with a subtle malt backbone coming off. Taste is actually a little toasty up front with a subtle bitterness coming through afterwards. Decent brew.
