From notes, catching up on a few older favorites today.

From bottle it has clear, light amber body and nice two-finger off-white head. Nice retention and rings of lacing down the glass.

Wonderful smell of hops. Some citrusy grapefruit up front followed by pine and grass. A little sweet malt on the back end.

Delicious taste that blends all the aromas very well. Near perfect balance of the bitter hop flavors with the sweeter malt notes.

Medium to light mouthfeel with a bit of oily finish from the hops. Very drinkable and nearly "sessionable." Great brew.

Serving type: bottle

A: burnt orange with a light tan head. Can't wait!

S: toffee and malt. Also piney hops!

T: toffee and burnt malt. Also some floral notes, dank hops, pine, and caramel.

M: a nice sudsy feel. Medium and buttery.

O: not what I was expecting in a good way. It drinks like an English pale which is awesome. I like the malty touch.
