look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Hazy pale golden in color, resembling a Wit beer, with a massive, coarse white head, which retains very well. Abundant fine-beaded carbonation races to the surface, the lacing is thick and glass-coating.

Aroma: Spicy and peppery hop notes dominate the aroma, grassy notes hay, and a slight pine note are also present. There are also moderate orange and grapefruit hop aromas.

Taste: Opens with somewhat aggressive herbal hops, which seem quite fresh. Throughout the taste, the hops dominate, although the pale malt manages to offer an occasional flourish. The slightly higher ABV (6.2%) remains incognito. Finishes with a lingering spicy and grassy hop presence.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and quite full, pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: A really nice example that is worthy of being served at Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's dinners.

Presentation: Packaged on a custom twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle, served in a Samuel Adams Boston Lager sensory glass.
