12 oz. can poured into my Spiegelau IPA glass.

A- Copper body. Off-white, yellowish head. Great retention.

S- Aroma is very floral, mixed with some grapefruit and pine. Subtly bready, sweet background.

T- Malt is more forward, giving more of a balance to the strong hops. Dry citrus peel and piney, but not overwhelming.

M- Body is velvety/medium. Sticks to the tongue. Bitterness is dull, but lingers on the palate. Carbonation is smooth.

O- Solid drinker. Great example of the single hop isolation. Plus, this was a great value for a nice sturdy ABV.
