Poured into a Sam Adams pint glass
Pours a light gold very little good color to it with a light head that leaves a film over the top
Hops dominate the smell, very fragrent grassy hops that can be smelled from the moment you pop it open. Notes of some spices and sweet malt are also noteable.
Very much the same as the smell, the hops are completely dominate if you drink this right out of the fridge with citrus such as sour orange or grapefruit, but as you let it warm even just a little you can pull out alot more spices and malt. Also a fruity note in the finish
Its a little overcarbonated, kinda makes a fizzy feeling in your mouth and down your throat. Body is actually pretty thin.
Very easy to drink this one overall, for the hopheads this one will be right up your ally everyone else I say give it a shot and let it warm up a little before you judge it
