12oz bottle poured into a Portsmouth goblet.
A - Pours a pale gold with a hint of orange. Crystal clear with a thin white head that doesn't hang around long enough to be appreciated. Fades quickly to a thin collar.
S - Tons of fresh hops - mostly resiny pine aromas. Touches of fresh pineapple and a hint of grapefruit too. Malt is hidden in this one - just about all hops...really nice hop aroma though. Can't wait to taste.
T - Very prominant hop flavors - pine, citrus, pineapple, orange, some spicyness. Some bready malt, little bit of sweetness. Quite bitter too, in a good way.
M - Thin to medium body. Total mouthfilling bitterness that lasts way past the swallow. Ample carbonation - very fine bubbles - smooth and creamy with a nice touch of prickliness.
D - Pretty drinkable pale ale...really good. Plenty of hop flavor, manageable 6.5% alcohol, smooth body. Very good - could easily be happy staying with this one for a night and finishing off the 4pk.
