A – Beautiful hazy orange. A thin bubbly white head. Fades to a thin line

S – The nose is really great. This huge juicing orange aroma. Grapefruit, lemons, just yeah. Smells so damn good.

T – Incredibly juicy. Dry, almost no sweetness until the end. Lots of orange juice in this one. Fresh orange zest. IBU seems low but it’s so full of flavor. This has a similar profile as if Walden & Susan were merged together into a dryer, juicier pale ale.

M – Excellent mouthfeel, dry, spritzy, effervescent.

O – This may be better than Susan to me. I really don’t know. All I do know, I’m getting more.
