Courtesy of and shared with Hrabren, thanks! Golden-orange misty body, slightly off white head, small, low retention. Lovely, fresh hopiness in the sweetish aroma, strong orange and herbal notes, vaguely spicy. Superb usage of Sorachi Ace! Ah, yeah... more of the same in the taste, fruity bubblegum, canít nail the fruit though, good, soft malty background, solid, herbal bitterness. Really well crafted. The bitterness just grows and grows, and ends up later on just slightly off balance, though itís more or less spot on for the majority of the experience. Itís not a terribly complex beer, but itís trick or two it does perfectly. And Iím growing to really love this hop!

12oz bottle at IL Santo Bevitore pours a murky orange with some ringing white head. Nose has a lot of pith, quite herbal too, soap, some resin, some honey. Flavor is well balanced, blends citrus and malt, honey, orange, tangerine, pine resin, soap, mild grass. Full bodied but dry too. Opened up well in the glass.

On tap, golden pour with a frothy head, body is very light and beer is very drinkable. Sweetish taste reminds of honey, followed by a not too strong bitter and hops. Somewhat citrusy. Perfectly balanced.
