Pours a clear golden copper color with a nice fluffy white head that rings the glass and sinks to a nice covering film. Fresh hop aroma with a bit of a bready and an increasingly present caramel nose as the brew warms. Caramel, slightl diacety, and malt opens up the taste before being washed away in a tide of hops. Fresh piney hop bitterness with a bit of flowery/earthy hoppiness is present. The hops fade about halfway through the brew and let the bready malt gain the stage for a bit before they return for a bitter flourish at the finish that leaves a nice bitterness on the tongue. Although the hops are the main part of the brew the malt provides a nice medium body but also seems to get a bit cloying as well. The slight cloyingness of the brew detracts from what is otherwise a nice session brew.
