Amazing appearence, with cloudy bright gold colour, frothy head that laces hardcore, and many tiny bubbles floating to the top. It looks awesome.
The scent is floral, and pine sappy, with just a hint of citrus.
The flavour is very hoppy, from start to finish, but not so much so that you cringe. Very clean and dry. Past the hops there was some grassy, pine, and fruit flavours. The carbonation was in good balance with the hops to help with the hop whallop.
Very drinkable. Hops upon hops, but clean, and lovely. I paired this with my Easter meal, and it was fantastic. I think this just took the spot for my favorite IPA.
