Notes from 11/10/14. (2014 ed.)

A- Four fingers of rolling off white head. Plenty of visible carbonation. Amber-red body. Excellent retention and lacing.

S - Subdued sweet floral and malt notes. Nice, sharp citrus and pine behind.

T/M - Well balanced and tempered fresh floral hop notes balanced by citru (lemon zest and grapefruit) and a little pine. Solid sweet malt backbone. A little citrus bitterness in the finish. Carbonation is low-medium.

O - Excellent fresh hop ale. Really, really well balanced and full of all the best flavors that I've come across in the other fresh hop beer that I've had the privilege of tasting.
