Pours out a copper color with a mild red hue. Clear and a thing head that left a solid lace for the entirety of my pint glass.
Upfront in the aroma is a lot of zesty citrus with a good amount of pine resin. As it warms the hop characters that show remind me of some of the botanical aromas that come from a fine gin. Fruity and zesty. A lemon grass and faintly biscuit grain aroma.
A well balanced pine/citrus/sticky hop bitterness is upfront but then balances out well to the middle with some solid juicy fruit and lemongrass grains. A dry medium/heavy astringency that gets heavier as you wait for the next sip.
Slippery on the tongue but a relatively light body the bitterness is mainly in the aftertaste so it goes down very smooth and makes you want another.
