Orange and straw appearance. Not much head, very white. Hoppy with alcohol on the nose. Alcohol prevalent on the front and back. Some grass flavor adds some interest, but overwhelming alcohol takes something away.

Pours a hazy amber, with an off white head that left lacing throughout. Has a citrus, apricot, and orange aroma. There’s a citrus, grapefruit, peach, caramel, and oak taste. It was very smooth and slick on the palate.
