A- Very clear very bright golden color, half finger off-white head.
S- A veritable explosion of piney, citrusy, and spicy hop aromas. Very littl malt aroma is detectable.
T- Although it wasn't very present in the aroma the complex yet simple grainy, smooth, slightly sweet maltyness comes out right away to serve as a vertiable on which the wonderful hop flavors are served. Balance is good through the hoppy finish.
M- Good medium body with slightly peppery carbonation.
O- A very enjoyable beer. My only beef is that the name suggests to some (my wife) that it is an oktoberfest. No problem as it's still a great beer, just not an oktoberfest.
