Pours a hazy copper to orange with a pillow-like white head containing extremely dense carbonation bubbles, leaving a faint lacing in its path which clings to the glass.
The primary aroma is that of grass or piney hops but also some citrus hints such as grapefruit, and just a touch of toasted malt to follow.
What a great & well-balanced palate consisting of the same grassy hops, honey, and citrus fruit or melon, like a combination of grapefruit and honeydew, but very faint, just enough of the sweetness to offset the hop bitterness.
Medium in body with a slightly aggressive carbonation character, but also a bit dry.
Excellent brew, and the abv is absolutely hidden in the palate characteristics of this well-balanced "ale". I now understand what all the hype is about, and if I wasn't a Pennsylvania native, I may say its better than NN.
Thanks to my sister in Charlotte for this one.
