12oz bottle received as an extra from excellent BA trader HopDiggityDawg.
Best until date 12/12/12.

Gold-amber elixir into SA glass. One-finger white head leaves thin rim as the tasting commences.
Plenty of thick lacing.

Floral notes, mild pine and citrus.

Smooth hop bitterness, light tropical accents. Pleasant.

Well carbonated, medium body, tart.

Decent brew, more an APA. Doesn't stand up to Head Hunter or White Rajah.

Serving Style: Bottle.

A- Nice amber color, nice foamy head.

S- The smell is quite intricate. Hops with grapefruit/citrus tones.

T- Taste is refreshing. Its a lighter, and has nice citrus/floral tones that compliment the hops. Its a nice refresher since I have been drinking a lot of more bitter IPAs lately. I enjoyed it and the lady even liked it, too!

M- Feels nice and light with good carbonation. Good bite, too.

O- Overall this is a very nice change of pace for me. Its got some fruity overtones, while still maintaining a nice IPA taste
