A - Hazy copper with a frothy white head. About two finger's worth of head that sticks to the edge of the glass with great lacing that spans the entire height of the glass.
S - Definite pine hops accompanied by floral and citrus notes. Very fresh bitter smelling.
T - Pine hops are strong throughout the drink and dominate the finish. Citrus flavours carry through along with a sweetness in the background that is hard to describe, tastes like a combination of very faint grain malts combined with fruits. Some people aren't fans of the bitterness, I for one find this drink to be a very tasty drink that favours hop bitterness without sacrificing any complexity.
M/D - Smooth medium body that is light on the tongue but still has some weight to it. Drinkability is great.
A good, solid beer that I am glad to find easily in the US.
