3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle purchased from the taproom. Pours a hazy bright orange with a ridiculously huge, thick head. Nose of sweet oranges, some bitter rind notes, and just a tiny hint of earth and wood. Taste is sweet orange but still hoppy and with enough bitterness. It’s too sweet, but interesting and refreshing enough that I ain’t mad at it. Great cause, too.
