Poured from a 12 oz can into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass. Canned on 07/18/14 on bottom of can. Served at 45F. Single purchased at Wine Warehouse (Charlottesville, VA).

A: Slightly hazy orange-light amber with good clarity, 1-finger off-white head with decent retention but no lacing.

S: Big pine and grapefruit aromas with some peppery notes, dankness as well, and more pithy citrus too. Pale malt aroma is most crackery. No yeast or alcohol notes.

T: Very fresh hop type of flavor with very heavy pine and grapefruit citrus. little bit of pale malt cracker notes with a light honey sweetness. There are more honeydew melon as the beer warms a little more. I think this beer might taste better in a few weeks as the hops are a bit much and prevents the beer from being as balanced as it probably should be because now it is mostly hops and borders on astringent for me. High bitterness.

M: Very oily and coating with even carbonation and medium body.

O: A lot better than the HP Cream Ale that preceded it but might help to sit and settle for a couple more weeks. I will try to pick up some more from this run and see if it is a little more mellow and less biting.
