12oz poured to tulip snifter

Appearance is a clear medium gold (surprisingly light for 1.080 OG), 1 finger and a half of light gold head. Head lays down to a film rather quickly, leaves some nice lacing. Very pretty beer,

Aroma has light floral, pine and citrus notes, some faint biscuit and honey.

Flavor has a nice sweetness with loads of hop flavor: pine, juniper berries, orange peel and black pepper jump out, but none annoyingly so. Less bitter than expected.

Mouthfeel is very nice, drinks far lighter than 1.080 OG suggests

Overall: less aggressive than the name and numbers might suggest, a good looking brew, nearly a big beer, that drinks like a PA. This one will be making frequent appearance in my fridge, for certain.
