Pours a hazy and perfect amber color with an off white head that fell well. Nose is grapefruit and tangerine. Malt is a generous cracker and the hop floral is a light petal on the nose. Malt smells a little toasty. I almost think I smell a hint of caramel and I like that very much.
Taste follows the nose. Soft generous malt with a little mouthfeel and flavor come through bringing all kinds of tangerine and grapefruit. The pithy grapefruit underscores the beer with a little bitterness and the hops do not bite too hard at the end. This had a soft and graceful bearing on the palate and was not too bitter or too strong. It is quite strong though at 7.6% and the alcohol on the palate is gentle and gives some bitterness to the finish too. That hint of toastiness from the malt is the perfect accent to the tangerine. A bit of aftertaste from fruit.
