Bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: As the name suggests, this beer pours a pretty golden/orange color with a nice lingering head and some pretty nice lacing. The beer is pretty clear but a little hazy.
S: The beer smells slightly floral and hoppy, once again as the name suggests. Since this beer is pretty damn cold that is about all I am picking up.
T: The taste is really more delicate than I expected. The taste is hops throughout the whole of it with grass, hay, and other earthy leafy flavors mixed in throughout. There isn't near as much flavor as I was expecting.
M: The mouthfeel on this one is very silky and creamy. It feels great and very unique on the palate.
O: This is a solid ale. Very easy drinking and very simple to handle. this is not nearly as flavorful as I had expected but a good ale nonetheless.
