A - Pours a huge, fuffy white head. Color is orange-amber. Nice lacing for the entire 24oz bottle.
S - Not a huge fan of the nose here - wonder if I have a slightly off bottle. I get some muted citrus, some muted pine, a bit of caramel, but mostly this odd note that I can only describe as earthy-peanut butter. I even used two glasses to be sure one wasn't dirty or had off-odors.
T - Pretty good taste despine the average nose. It's mildly hoppy with both citrus and floral notes. There's a mild sweet caramel that comes in mid-palate, then more hops at the end.
M - Pretty smooth, moderate carbonation. I'd even call it soft. Light to medium body.
D - I prefer the regular SN Harvest - I just like the hop profile a lot more. But, this is still pretty good beer.
