3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a solid amber color with a nice, thick head that forms an "island" as it settles. Aroma is orange peel, with a slight tinge of lemon. Mouthfeel is slick and smooth, taste is more orange and yeast. Malt is on the back of the tongue, but only slightly- still, it’s there. Very drinkable for 11.5% ABV. Nice beer.
