General: This is a standard in my house but I figured that I would finally review it. I enjoyed this one out of my New Belgium tulip glass. No born on date on this bottle but it's pretty fresh, it's only been in the house for a couple of days.
Appearance: Pours a light gold to normal gold color and is crystal clear. Very bright color to this. There is a great white head that is big and fluffy that diminishes pretty quickly. There is a little bit of lacing, not a lot but what there is looks really good.
Aroma: this is a very balanced aroma with a nice bit of hops with a good malt backbone. There is a little touch of orange that comes through this. I really like the aroma of this, it's really nice!
Mouthfeel: Carbonation is moderate to moderately high and has a coating effect with each sip. The body of this is medium, and is fitting to style.
Taste: Again just like the aroma this is very balanced. There is a nice hop note but it is backed up perfectly by the malt. There are a lot of small flavors in this that come out slowly over time like orange and maybe some light citrus. it's a great beer.
Overall: This is a good beer, plan and simple. It is a standard in my fridge but until tonight I never thought to write a review.

After I drank the first few sips of this is tasted really Hoppy but in a good way. Fairly Floral. Good thick taste. Hard to describe but even though it is not the same type of beer it really tasted like a beer that I had last week in California. Pliney the Elder! The taste was about 80% similar. So if you want something that tastes similar but live in Texas like I do go buy some Little Sumpin to satisfy your Pliney the Elder needs.
