Awe inspiring in its unfiltered beauty, deep and almost amber in colour. Creamy off-white head left legit lace along the sides of the pint glass. Bright and floral aromas of sweet and citrusy goodness. Piney resins play well with just the right hint of malt sweetness for balance. Good bitterness to boot. Great body and high quaffability, for sure. It could be a little bit more crisp, as some others have said, but this is very, very well balanced. Perhaps one of the more well balanced, quality brews available that I have tried in the Southeast. Well done.
