12oz bottle into a pint glass
Best before: 06/14

A: Golden copper with less than a fingers width of bright white head, pretty good retention and leaves a fair amount if lacing.

S: Big hop forward aroma, citrus ring, dank resinous notes, and spicy floral hops. Lots of malty sweetness to balance.

T: Piney bitterness and lots if citrus rind, soapy hop notes, sweet malts. Hop profile is ok but it's not my favorite hop flavors. Malts are heavy To balance and at times overtake the hops.

M/D: Full bodied, carbonation appropriately low, smooth for the style, fair drinkability.

O: Good but not great. Worthy of a drink but not something I'd likely purchase again.
