The beer pours apricot and copper in color. There is a tall, thick, foamy head of off-white. The aroma is citrus, pith and peel, lots of orange, with some muskiness and mango skin. The taste follows the aromas, lots of tangy citrus, over toasted cracker and biscuit malt, along with a touch of pine. The finish is dry, with a bitterness that seems moderate, but then ramps up rather intensely. The beer drinks smooth with a soft carbonation.
