I'm drinking out of the bottle, because it's summertime and drinking beer from a stubbie is a summertime activity. Anyway, I will pour one out and tell you how it looks and such.

Poured into a chilled beer mug. Lot's of cream colored foam. The color is a lovely orangey amber, slightly cloudy. Looks like an IPA. Smells faintly of hops, but it's very subtle when poured. In the bottle it smells of flowers and alcohol. Perfect. The head is hanging around nicely as I drink it. Overall the look and smell are very refreshing and satisfying.

The mouthfeel is very substantial. It slides over your tongue and lingers there. Definitely not a light beer. Chewy and satisfying.

The taste is fantastic. Nice bitterness from the hops, and a nice dose of the flowery, resinous flavor I like from hops. The sweetness of the malt balances well with the bitterness, but it's a very subtle maltiness. Not complex, which I enjoy on a warm summer day. The bitter and sweet flavors combine in each sip and neither overwhelms. This beer manages to be both interesting and exciting, and refreshing and subtle at the same time. Be careful! You can put down many of these in a sitting, and the proclaimed 6.66% ABV will kick your butt.

Overall, this is one of my all time favorite summer beers. It's refreshing, and flavorful, and substantial.
