A-Clear yellow orange, one finger head that leaves some lacing.

S-Good deal of bread/wheat to start and some citrus hops.

T-Once again starts with bread and wheat and toast. Ends with citrus and slight bitterness. But not enough to fully balance the beer out.

M-Medium to light in body with nice carbonation and a crisp dry finish.

Pours clear light golden in color with a one finger white head that retains decently. Looks some what thin and light.

Smell has Some nice hop aromas. Slight pine and citrus aromas are blended with more pronounced herbal hop aromas and some floral notes. I almost detect a very faint vinegar presence in the finish. Others with me do not agree.

Taste has some good interesting hop flavors. Primarily herbal and slightly spice like hops forward. Herbal flavors lasts into the malt, cutting the rich lightly sweet grainy malt.

Mouthfeel is great. Crisp and refreshing. Lots of hop oils and moderate carbonation. Very well balanced.
