Served in straight pint glass. From the first keg to be shipped into and served in the USA. The poured a light coppery-gold color, much paler than most of the style, with a half-inch of white head that had moderate retention and lacing.

The aroma had a definite hop-forward scent, although it wasn't overpoweringly hoppy, and just a bit of malt in the background. The hops were much bolder on the tongue. They gave the beer a solid citrus taste and the malts were very soft in the background.

The body was good and crisp, and had a dry, very hoppy finish. Drinkability was pretty good, my pint went down quickly enough, and it's a beer I'll have again. Overall, a very nice brew. I found it to be thinner and much hoppier than most of the style. In fact I thought this brew was more like a hoppy Pale Ale, and if it had called that instead, the number scores would have been higher. This beer should be making it's way more towards the Puget Sound region soon and I suggest trying it if you see it.
