  • Wrote from notes taken while at Jak's tap.

    Served in a tulip glass the beer was opaque with about an inch of frothy, thick foam. Retention was about average with lacing that was thick, coating, and sticky.

    Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, citrus hops that mostly come across as orange. Light on the sniffer but definitely pleasant.

    Taste is slight sweet and roasted malt that give way in the middle to citrus orange hops that stays to the finish with a pleasant bitterness.

    Medium body with light carbonation that at times had a creamy feel.

    This is a really nice offering in the style. The high ABV doesn't come through in the drink at all. Clean and refreshing with just a hint of roasted malt. Enjoy!
