Pours clear, golden with a effervescent white head.Flavor and aroma matched each other quite well offering some nice bright floral and grassy hops on top of a sweet crackery malt belly. A lighter, active mouthfeel. Overall, an enjoyable beer. Glad I got to try try, would happily drink again.

Bottled 10/8/12

A: Copper in color with a big, sticky, pillowy, white head. Good lace and retention.

S: Grassy, fresh hops with honey-sweet malt.

T: Fresh, delicious hops balanced by sweet, sugary malt. One of the maltier/more balanced fresh hop beers I've had. Tastes closer to an amber/red ale. I'd love to have several bottles on-hand at all times during hop harvest season.

M: Very clean, smooth, and fresh but can be a bit cloying as it warms.

O: One of the better fresh hop beers out there. Wish I could have had this closer to the bottling date but it's held up well after more than a month in the bottle and a trip across the country.
