Sweet citrusy nose leads to a bold bitter piney flavor. Crystal clear golden color. Good mouthfeel. Lovely beer for my palate.

Bottle @ home, courtesy tossed via Flair. Slightly hazed orange pour with a soapy white head. Smells of green onion, juicy grapefruit and orange, and huge pine. Slight biscuit malt note. Fairly bitter on the tongue. Some bitter green onion and garlic. Lots of pine and orange rind. Slight marmalade note. Huge resin on the finish. Not bad.

Bottle shared by Colin. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Light floral hop aromas. Crisp and clean with light florally hop notes. Good balance with just enough of a malt backbone to keep her honest. Good body and mouthfeel.

>> Thank you Lenin for this rake. Clear orange gold pour. Weak foam. Nose is vegetal hops- onion, shallot, garlic, maybe orange glazed shallot for a French dish. Taste is a bit boozy, sweet onion, bitter orange, peel, potpourri. Sneeze inducing hop levels. Fresh and juicy palate. I like it, but garlic and oniony hops haters gonna hate.
