3.63/5 rDev -10.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pale yellow with off white head
Tastes of pine, hop, malt
Gentle carbonation, but not too strong
Smelled great, and the hop smell is just excellent. Overall, this is a solid beer. I would not commit to a sixer, but I'd have again.
Note: Felt a little flat, but didn't effect taste.
Serving type: on-tap

Enjoyed this 12 oz bottle out of a standard pint glass Ruth’s Chris in Annapolis, MD.
A: Pours a clear golden-copper hue with a thin 2-finger white head that quickly dissolves into a thin wispy lace. .
S: Fresh hoppy aroma with a grassy orange and fruity background.
T: Crisp and hoppy up front followed by a dry clean finish.
M: Medium body and medium carbonation.
O: This is a classic beer – I’ve had it a bunch of times but never got around to reviewing it. It is one of those beers you could drink all day because it tasty and well balanced.
