Poured into a pint glass from the bottle.
Great caramel-amber color, quite clear, with a fairly good white head that leave ok lacing. Nothing spectacular but better than most. A smaller white head stays throughout.
I was expecting more from the nose - the nose was a bit tame for a SN brew. Perhaps I should have used a better glass or something. Although, this brew doesn't use Cascade, and cascade I guess is what I was expecting. It uses Citra ( which are awesome for flavor, not a lot of nose though) and a new unnamed variety. It works in the taste.
The taste is great. Super great floral hop taste initially, with some sweet citrusy notes in the middle accompanied by sweet malted barley, more floral hops, and a great, dry, smooth, yet spicy rye finish. What a great beer.
