Thanks to sideshowe for hooking me up with these bottles.

Pours a slightly hazy, bright golden orange color with lighter golden yellow edges and a half finger, white foam head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring.  Streaks of spotty lacing left behind.

Dank floral hop aroma with a boat load of citrus and tropical fruit notes followed by pale biscuit malt.  Earthy with some grass and pine needle followed by grapefruit, pineapple, mango and blood orange.  The nose has a nice balance of resinous oils, earthy grass, citrus fruit and pale malt.  

Fuller bodied than expected with stronger hop bitterness than the aroma suggests.  There's a blast of dank, earthy hop resins up front with sticky grass, pine needle and spruce tip flavors.  Nice amount of dry bitterness that lingers over the sweeter notes and pale malt into a bone dry finish.  Floral and perfume like at first followed by tropical and citrus fruit sweetness.  This isn't as strong as in the nose but nicely balances things out with some pineapple, grapefruit and orange zest.  Pale malt backbone adds balance without hindering the hop flavor.  Some bread and a decent amount of biscuit-like flavor.  Clean, crisp and pretty easy to drink but the bitterness could be balanced a little more by the sweeter fruit notes.  Still, this is a very good beer that I could session for long periods of time.
