An orange amber colour that is slightly darker in places & settles with a thin white, bubbly head with average retention.
Strong hop aroma with some nice herbal notes & a little spiciness too. The later part is similar but with more of a citrus & pine presence. Well balanced.
A lot a pine in the flavour that is blended together nicely with some good citrus flavours & just a hint of sweetness. Along with the initial bitter hops their is a background herbal & grassy hops taste & a semi bitter, hop infused semi-bitter one.
Very smooth to drink & highly drinkable as a direct result of this. The beer is a medium bodied one & the carbonation is about right for the type of beer.
Overall this one was great with a beautiful bitter hop flavour that was very well balanced & went down great. I imagine this would make an excellent session beer.
