Aroma: Initial wheat bread malt complexity quickly followed by orange juice-like hop aromas. Light pear-like fruity esters. No alcohol heat detected. Balance is firmly to the American hop character.
Appearance: Slightly cloudy rich-amber pour. Sudsy white head that retains moderately.
Flavor: Firm hop bitterness up front. Earthy hop and slightly spicy hop notes. Definite rich bread-dough base that is dominated by the earthy hop notes. Low-medium citrus fruit character that isn't as prominent in the flavor as the aroma. Balance is firmly to the hop character. Finish is dry.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Slight hop derived astringency. No heat or creaminess. Appropriate for style.
Overall impression: Classic East Coast interpretation. Well made but not an all time favorite for me. I loved it but seemed to have to much malt character and not enough classic American hop character to scratch the itch for me.
Serving type: can
