Poured with a hazy glowing orange body. A 1+ finger white head appeared on the pour but after some time faded to a solid white cap completely coating the body. Leaves spotted lacing throughout.

Smell is full of different aromas. I pick up sugary candy aromas up front. This mainly leads me to think of bubblegum. Then comes the hops. Strong citrus in the form of lemon and orange. There is some pine in the finish along with a earthy aroma that all go together very well.

I really like the taste of this one. There is a mild caramel malt backbone but the hops take the main stage. There is lemon up front followed by oranges and finishing with a spicy pine bitterness.None of the hops overtake the others. They blend very nicely.

Medium bodied and smooth. Has a very nice body considering the abv. Mild carbonation lets all the flavors work through at their own pace. My tongue definately takes a beating.

This is surprisingly easy drinking for a beer with this abv. The mouthfeel helps with the drinkability a lot. It will ruin your palate though so if drinking a few you won't get the true potential after the first.

This is a really nicely made beer. I hope this turns out to be a year around offering. Uses some interesting ingrediants as well. It was brewed with three spices, one slips my mind but the other two were lemon grass and hemp seed.
