Draft @ Rivertowne Pour House. Pours a clear, bright orange color; white head with good retention and fine-bubbled lacing. Slightly reserved aroma: dried oranges, mineral bitterness, some sugar. Lively carbonation. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: crisp mineral and citrus bitterness, candy sugar and dried oranges beneath; nicely crisp, lightly sweet, and very drinkable (if served a touch too cold). Solid stuff. Lengthy finish: bitter minerals and earthiness, toasty malts, and dried oranges; nicely dry.
