24oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 4/25/12.

A: Pours a clear amber orange with a puffy 2 finger white head. A little bit of visible carbonation. Lacing on the sides of the glass.

S: Mild hop aroma with hints of pepper and citrus. Slightly bready malt backbone. Mostly get a lemon like hop.

T: Nice light citrus hop profile, reminds me of a milder sorachi hop. Has a somewhat spicy citrus hop profile which is nice. Nice lingering hop freshness.

M: Medium/light bodied with average carbonation. Clean finish.

Overall a very unique and enjoyable hop profile. Doesn't wow you in any particular way but is still very tasty. Wouldnt mind trying this one a little fresher.

warm westher drinking.

Pours a clear golden copper small off-white head that has decent retention and leaves some light lacing on the glass. The aroma is earthy hops, some light grapefruit, white wine grape, caramel, and a light dankness. Taste has a bit of sweetness with some caramel, earthiness, a light mineral note, dank hops, and white wine grape. The finish has a decent bitterness to it with a lingering dankness. Medium body. Medium carbonation.
