Poured form a bottle into a pint glass. Very nice amber color. Great head with amazing lacing. Smells of piney hops, with underlying citrus notes, along with that classic scent that can only be described as "beer". The hops hit the tounge instantly, with just enough malt to keep the bitterness from becoming unpleasant. As with the aroma, the pineyness of the hops is more immediate, with the citrus coming into play in the finish. Good mouthfeel. Not too heavy, but you know you're drinking a real beer, not beer-flavored water. Very nice buzz, but the alcohol is well hidden by this beer's amazing flavor.
