This may have just become my new go-to beer.

I had this on-tap, served in a pint glass.

A - The lighting in the restaurant was not great, but the beer appeared to be a golden orange color with a thick head. Exquisite lacing as I finished the beer.

S - This is what really got me. The hops are apparent and I love that. The beer smells of pine, citrus, and some other natural herb that is in the hops family (wink wink). I wish they made an air freshener that smelled like this beer. On second thought, I think that would cause major problems if I got pulled over.

T - The hops are certainly upfront, followed by hints of citrus. Malt is there, but definitely in the background. This beer leaves a pleasant aftertaste.

M - Extremely smooth without sacrificing carbonation.

Overall, this is a fantastic beer. I can't believe I've waited so long to try it. It will definitely become a regular in my fridge.

I’ve had this many times before, but, having just joined the site, I decided to write a review this time. The beer is dated 6/3/14 (about two months old). It pours a straw yellow that borders on copper under certain lighting. The aroma is pleasant with a subtle citrus characteristic, but predominantly earthy resinous hops. The taste has more citrus than the nose would suggest and is full of orange and lemon zest. The beer finishes with a sturdy, resinous hop bitterness that lingers on the tongue for awhile. It is medium bodied with a modest amount of carbonation, which suits the style well. Overall, a solid beer. At a reasonable price, it is a nice go-to beer.
