Tasting notes: pours cloudy brownish orange with a smallish head, not much retention, good lacing, some slow streams. Aromatic malts, caramel, and hints of tangerine hops on the nose. Buttery smooth creamy entry, silky mouthfeel, tastes of bitter orange peel, sharp fresh lively hops, malts, grapefruit, caramel, finishing boldly hoppy bitter. Medium complexity, medium-high depth, great transitions, great carry, great drinkability.
