Pours an orangish copper color with a thick tan head. The nose has a big bouquet of fruity and floral hops along with big fruity malts. Taste is also an explosion of citrusy hops over sweet bready malts. A medium body is nicely carbonated and goes down quite well. A very well made brew.

A: beautiful clear caramel color with a 1 inch head. The thickness allows a few drops of beer to float on the head like a hover-craft, and I like that. Huge lacing stays forever.

S: giant citrus and caramel smells, with some pine and all. Is this an IPA? Smells bitter and earthy from the hops, too.

T: excellent hops taste of citrus. There is some pine and earthiness, then bitterness, followed by caramel malts.

M: first it's smooth and medium bodied, then it's carbonated and crisp, and when that dissipates it leaves the malty smoothness on the tongue again.

O: fantastic beer, not sure of its category though. It's so well put together, I want a thousand of them. Got the 6 pack for $14 at some hell hole in Chicago, so screw them for that, but it's probably worth it.
