12oz. bottle

Pours a clear medium-amber color with a small, creamy white head. Head fades leaving decent lacing on the glass.

Very aromatic citrusy hops escape the confines of the glass. Slightly sweet with just a hint of nectarine. No noticable malt.

Explosion of citrusy hops upfront, leading into a fairly aggressive bitterness that brings an exceptional balance. Finishes with just as many hops as it started, fairly dry and with only a faint bitterness that lingers.

Full body, mild carbonation.

As easy to drink as it is enoyable. The level of balance is very pleasing, and often lacking in this style. Worth seeking.
