12-oz bottle into Samuel Smith "Tulip" pint glass
A - 2 fingers of thick, pure white head over a transparent golden body; moderate carbonation is visible; head leaves nice lace
S - smells like a flower shop; touch of citrus
T - sweet bready malt, floral hops, citrus, sweet honey; all the flavors seem to linger for a bittersweet aftertaste; complex and well-balanced
M - smooth medium body; medium/high carbonation
O - Hops are the main feature here, but the sweet malt puts up a fight. Hoptober is a good hoppy ale.
