Slightly hazy, orange amber with thick off white head with good retention and heavy lacing.
Pungent, floral, citrusy hops - pink grapefruit and tangerine zest.
Formidable pine resin and grapefruit zest oil bitterness is strangely palatable, even moreish with a little bready, caramel malt daring to stand up to the hop assault.
Long, pine and citrus zest finish with delightful lingering bitter orange zestyness.
