- What made an impression: big tangerine flavour
Visual: (cellared for 1.5 years). Aluminum can. Pours cloudy orange creamsicle with a small 1mm head, fine ring with a thin layer of retention, barely visible close knit micro streams.
Nose: orange citrusy hopped malt, light dank, big brightness. (lvl-8)-pungency.
Attack: sharp crisp bite, tingly mouthfeel
Mid-palate: tangerine, (lvl-3-sweetness), bursting orange barley malt
Finish: mild grainy exhale, lingering tangerine citrus subtle bitter hops, slight grassiness
Summary: A great balance of hops and malt, with a very appealing and appetizing orange citrus flavour profile. I wished for a bit more fullness and length in the mids but this went down just fine.
