bought and drank in Cambridge, MA, Feb 2010.
pours a golden-orange, crystal clear with thick off-white head. pretty good stickiness and lacing.
smell is probably the low side of what otherwise i think is a great beer - nice malt notes, hint of earthy hop, and some light fruitiness.
taste is very good, simply put. nothing too heavy-hitting, but full well-rounded flavor all around - touch of sweetness, with just the right amount of hop flavor in the middle before sliding right down, with some rounded, clean hop bitterness. flavlor doesn't really linger, but a ghost of the flavor does - just enough to drive you back to the glass to remember how good it really was.
quite thick mouthfeel, perfect carbonation, couldn't ask for more.
drinkability is also incredibly high - the label says it 'slides' across the palate, and i must say it flows right down, easy drinking, would be great in the summer, great flavor with hitting you over the head with it.
