A: Cloudy deep orange leading to amber. Good full finger of off white head. Sticky lacing sheeting left on the glass.

S: Earthy hops. Sweet malts. Pine. Smells bready but still fresh. Getting more earthy hops than the citrus and grapefruit.

T: Nice punch of pine hops. More middle of the road than I remembered, but its been a while. Dry finish.

M: Medium bodied.
