Poured into a Hair of the Dog tulip on 5/28/11.
Pours a dark golden amber with hues of orange and yellow on the edges. A finger of frothy white head dissipates leaving a frosty white coating of tiny bubbles on the glass. Great color and head.
Smells of fruity floral hops and a slight citrus hit as well. Lots of malt sweetness to this brew and done very nice. You don't usually get this much sweetness out of a beer of this style but this one does very well.
Taste is floral, citrus, and grass, followed by a sweet malt heaviness that coats the pallet shortly after. Again lots of sweetness but is chewy and tasty.
Mouthfeel is medium to heavy. A slight taste of booze but not bad. Hops resin leaves an earthy taste on the pallet.
Overall this is a good beer. It has its short comings but good. Can't say much more then that.

A: poured from a 16 oz can into a pint glass, red brown colored with a large foamy offwhite head that lingers leaving good lacing, clear
S: heavy on hops, earth, pine, citrus , grapefruit, breast malt sweetness, tangy and mouth watering
T: pine bitterness up front, bitter at first with a lemon quality, sweetens to honey and slight raisin flavors, hint of heavy alcohols and esters
M: medium to full with good carbonation, slight alcohol presence
O: nice balance of bitter mixed with quite sweet maltiness
