Hazey pale orange with a very thin cap of off-white foam. Lots of lacing in thick webby sheeting coats the glass.

Aroma is thick and fairly full of broad intensity from a big load of juicy, citrusy hops and caramel covered bread dough.

Taste is just as broad, lacking some fullness until the finish where it gets a bit more complex and thick. Citrus stays the course from start to finish with bittering tangerine skins and blended dark orange flavors. Quite nice really. The malts stay in the back, the way back, with a pale malt dryness and some doughy sweetness. Keeps a tilted balance as the hops are heavy on the flavors and character leaving the malts behind to do just a little bit of placement along the way. Quite orangey. My tongue is getting a work out. Whew...

Feel is abourt medium with a heavy citrus carry-on of orange flavored luggage that provides extra heft to the overall payload. A bit of warm and rough hoppy citric skin and pithy texture finds its way once you get into it. Gets SO much more vigorous as it warms my head is swimming with sillyness now.

Mucho yummy stuff. Must find book, toolie, toolie, orange sky is beautiful, yum-yum...huh...

A: Vibrant and clean amber with cherry highlights. Groups of small bubbles move from the bottom of the glass up to the top where a medium sized creamy off white head with a hint of pink to it.

S: Vanilla, caramel, strawberry, marshmallow and some tangy orange. Smells like a desert. Smells a lot like Booneville Winter Solstice.

T: Tastes a lot like Winter Solstice too. The first impression is a rounded vanilla with aspects of butterscotch. This sweeps from the tip of the tongue down to the back. But this is where the similarities stop. This beer is MUCH more bitter...quite substantial and spread evenly across the palate. Undercurrent of red apple, sweet doughy breads and even hints old tangerine juice lay down the rest of the foundation. Finishes bitter and sweet but not cloying at all which is staggering for how sweet the beer is. The bitterness is perfectly balanced to allow this to happen.

M: Medium body and smooth

D: I killed this thing fast. Really fast considering how sweet it was.

Served In: Tulip
