This pours a light-to-medium shade of copper. Two-fingers of bone-white foam sit on top. Retention is good and lacing is in thin, sticky, strands.
This is a nicely inviting hoppy nose. Notes of grass, earth, soap and citrus are all here. There is a nice hint of caramel malts, lying below the surface.
Notes of grassiness and pine needles dominate the flavor. Yellow grapefruit, lemon and unripened oranges are here, also. A very light hint of maltiness brings a slight touch of balance, but this one is still quite hop forward.
A medium body with a medium-to-high level of carbonation. It is mostly smooth, with a tiny touch of sharpness. It does have a nice, mild, level of creaminess to it, which earns points in my book.
As long as you like the bitterness of hops, it's a keeper. Personally, I'm very glad to have had the chance to try it. I don't plan to search it out again, though.
