Pours a rich golden yellow color and a thick cloud-like eggshell-colored head. The aroma is dominated by pine and earth hop characteristics, with maybe a little lemon creeping in as well. The flavor is likewise primarily driven by a dull, earthy hop character up front with a bit of peppery spice, all balanced by a comparatively subtle nutty sweetness. Finely carbonated, this one is easy to drink but not special in that regard, although it is noted that it tastes lighter than I would have expected for 6% alcohol. Overall, it is a solid, hop-forward golden ale.
