Appearance - Pours a deep amber red with decent clarity and an off-white two finger head. Retention is good, leaving behind a thin but consistent, sticky lacing.
Smell - Citrus hops stand out, backed behind some sweet, bready malt.... but there's a subtle musty, earthy aroma that takes away from an otherwise pleasant smelling beer.
Taste - Starts sweet and floral, blossoming into an array of fruity esters. Mid-taste a mellow citrus bitterness comes in and takes the reigns, and doesn't relinquish it's control as the taste fades and finishes.
Mouthfeel - Light to medium body. Smooth and approachable with a moderate amount of carbonation.
Overall - Great amber with exceptional balance. Session friendly. One of those rare beers that's approachable enough for the beginner, but complex enough to keep an avid beer fan's interest.
