AROMA: Light citrus orange scent. Some vanilla/wood character. 7/12
APPEARANCE: Hazy shade of orange. Small white foam mostly dissipates. 1/3
Orangepeel is the predominant flavor, though actual bitterness is low.
Lightly sweet amber malt base is present throughout. Fairly assertive
toffee flavor right as it finishes imparts a nice sweetness. Oak
character is mild. 13/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; consistently crisp. Finishes dry with a little astringency. Otherwise smooth and quaffable. 4/5
IMPRESSION: This is more of an amber or pale ale than an EIPA. Not much
wood character, either. Still, it’s enjoyable for it is. 6/10
TOTAL SCORE: 31/50
