Picked up a growler, poured into a nonic pint. The nose is pretty malty, fair amount of citrus. Clear amber-orange. Good amount of head, and a TON of lacing, the glass is coated. The flavor is outstanding...citrus, floral, and pine. Good good, love these from SN every season.

Stated 2014 on the bomber.

A - Pours out super clear ambersh orange with a frothy three finger off white head that leaves incredible lacing around the glass.

S - Floral, citrusy, fruity, raisin, fig, caramel, sweet and malty. Complex and Beautiful!

T - Sweet, floral, caramely, gratefruit/citrus, fruity esters, lemon zest, bitterness. Very well balanced!

M - Medium bodied and super soft in the mouth, almost frouthy. Carbonation is perfect on this, which really makes it a pleasure to drink outright.

O - Can I say I love this beer! I had it on tap at a local bar and it grabbed my attention like no other beer that I have had thus far. I enjoyed it so much, I went on a wild goose chase looking for it at all the local beer stores with no avail, I asked a beer store if they would get it on the next shipment and sure enough it came in! I will be picking more of this up, that is for sure. The beer has so much to offer, and yet it is so smooth with a perfect blend of flavors and aromas. Its balance has no offensive flavors to speak of. If you want an excellent fresh hop ale look no further, this is a must get cheers!
