12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a hazy amber with a 1 finger head that disappears after a few moments. Leaves a fair amount of lacing on the glass.
The smell is full of citrus hops. Very pleasant. I also pick up faint smell of a caramel type of malt.
This beer tastes like a beefed up version of the Pride and Joy. Hint of a caramel type sweetness in the malts with a very nice kick of hops with a slight piney-ness and and citrus. Think grapefruit.
Feels light and is very drinkable.
Overall, this beer is great! Highly recommended. As mentioned, it tastes like a beefed up Pride and Joy. A little more hop presence which is great. I definitely would choose this over the Pride and Joy if both are available.
