Appearance was a clear dark brown/copper color which formed a light tan head of decent size. Aroma was more subdued than I would have expected. Primarily hops, with a mild grapefuit/grass aroma. Malt is fairly represented, but hops is primary aroma. Flavor was a lightly roasted malt, well balanced by the hops, again with a grapefruit type flavor. Some alcohol was present, but not excessive. Light to medium in body, with fairly high carbonation. The alcohol came out a little bit more as a warming sensation, and the effect of the beer was drying. Overall, a great beer which was highly drinkable.

Poured from 22oz bottle into 16oz pint glass.
A: Large, creamy, off white head on top of a red/amber colored beer. Leaves nice lacing in the glass. Little to no carbonation.
S: Citrusy hops
T: Citrusy hops balanced very well with a malty finish. Nice lingering bitterness.
M: Medium body with a very soft mouthfeel.

This beer wastes no time in making its presence known. The hop flavors hit you as soon as the beer enters you mouth and is balanced nicely with a malty finish.
