Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a wine glass.

A - Color is a burnished gold with lots of orange. It is extremely clear. Moderately fluffy and thick white head. Strong lacing. A very attractive beer.

S - Hops dominate the aroma, with a mix of earthy and citrusy notes. The citrus is mostly grapefruit, but with only a bit of harsh "cattiness". Light bready malt is barely detectable behind the hops.

T - The balance goes to hops, with the same earthy/citrusy flavors to match the aromas. The malt behind it is bready and biscuity and just a bit sweet. The strong hops flavors fade into a dry, clean finish.

M - Medium body. Smooth, creamy carbonation. Moderate alcohol presence. High hops bitterness.

O - The overall impression of this beer is clean, hoppy and crisp, with enough malt sweetness to keep it from melting your tongue. The alcohol is evident but not obnoxious. I don't understand the name, since the beer is clearly in the American tradition, not British, but when a beer is this good, who cares what they call it.
