Head is frothy, off white with good retention; body is clear and deep gold; leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is very pleasant with lots of fresh pine, lemon-lime, and eventually a touch of graham cracker. Well-rounded flavor is comprised of pine, lime, earthy bitterness. Hop flavor is bold but not soapy or astringent, and some light malt sweetness contributes balance and complexity. Soft carbonation, medium body, slight carbonic bite.

Very smooth, quaffable, and balanced. The hop qualities are bold but stop short of overwhelming, and the supporting roles are gentle and harmonic. A very solid and enjoyable brew.

Served cool from Pint can into pint glass.

A) Attractive copper colour and white foamy head that does persist.

S) Spritzy resin-like hops. Very appealing even though I am not a big hop-head.

M) Pleasantly fizzy. Consistency not really different from most beers.

T) Fairly pleasant hop-forward taste with slightly astringent aftertaste.

O) Very good, enjoyed it more than I thought I might, not being a fan of American-type hops. Maybe this one works a lot better than British imitations because the hops are balanced out by robust use of malt (which boosts the alcohol content). Will buy again if I see it.
