A - Pours a bright golden yellow color. Crisp and clear with 2-finger white head that held and laced very nicely.
S - Smells of delicious fresh hops. Caramel malts come through with a nice flowery hop aroma. Hints of citrus and pines show the depth of the hop varieties
T - Light and crisp flavor of hops with hints of malt. The floral and citrus hops are most noticeable to my palate. The flavor is deeper than the crisp color would imply, but the hops are not overpowering.
M - Creamy but still light with medium carbonation
O - Very enjoyable and drinkable beer. Hop flavor and smell were both complex and gave good character. The bitterness was low and balanced by the malt which will appeal to a wide audience (reminiscent of their signature, Fat Tire).
