Served in straight pint glass. Poured a semi-cloudy orange-yellow color with 1/2 inch of off-white head that had low retention and good lacing.

The aroma was a relatively subdued blend of citrus and pine hops, with just a bit of base malt showing through. On the tongue, the situation was the same, mostly those hops, with just a bit of malt, not enough for balance.

The body was a bit on the the light side, again, a lack of malts, and had a nicely dry finish. Drinkability was good, I finished my pint easily enough, but was ready to move on after it. Overall, an OK example of the style, average. Probably worth a shot if you see it, but probably not worth seeking out.
