look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip glass. Didn't see a date but this was just released so it's very fresh. It was a clear golden color with lots of carb streams from the etching. It had a large two finger head that slowly settled into a thick foam cap. Great sheeting with lots sticking.

The aroma was fantatic. Loads of herbal and citric hops with a little pine resin for the hop portion alongside a caramel malt base in the background. The taste was also excellent. One of the best fresh hop beers I've had this year. Moderately bitter but still easily drinkable. Pine and grassy hops lead the way with a little of the malt to balance it out. Goes down way too smooth. Medium to full mouthfeel with good carb levels and slightly bitter aftertaste.

Overall, as I said above, one of the best fresh hop beers this year for me. NBB really nailed it with this one. Highly recommend. Fresh hop seasonal and avail here in TX. Rotation - gonna grab several more while still fresh and definitely on the look out for list for next year [H;Y]
