The beer pours a hazy dark amber with tints of dried apricots. There is a relatively short head of light tan foam. The aroma is oranges, sweet malt, caramel and tea. The taste follows the aromas, loads of orange and malt, with a dry and quite bitter grapefruit finish. The beer drinks smooth and easy. This combines the best of an English IPA with the best of an East Coast American IPA for a nice take on the style.
