Thanks to Jay23 for sending this extra!

Pours a fiery orange color with a fair inch of foam. Great retention, slowly trickles down. A bit of lacing on the sides.

Nice orange aroma, malty and sweet. Fruity and citrus hops, a bit of pine. There seems to be quite a bit of cascade hops on the nose. Sweet orange and tangerine dominate. Hoppy aroma with some toast and caramel malts. Later on I pick up some sweetness that reminds me of Belgian candy. Some cherry and strawberry intensifies as it warms up…almost like a fruit cocktail.

A bit more bitter than the aroma leads to believe. Bitter orange peel, lemon, toast, caramel, toffee, and bitter grapefruit. Very pleasant bitterness with a malty balance and semi-dry finish. More toast and toffee flavors develop as it warms up. Quite a change from the West Coast IPA I’ve been pounding as of late, and it’s a welcome change. Pretty darn tasty stuff.

Well carbonated, soft and creamy, goes down fairly easy.

Another great beer from the Brewers Gone Wild! Series, I have not been disappointed with any beer from this series.

Mmmm, thanks Jay for sending me this one!
