look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Arrives in a liter "stein" with a beautiful copper color with a voluminous tan head that leaves copius lacing as it even settles to a thick film.
Smell is a nice mix of floral and evergreen hop notes with a mild, malt in the background. Good balance and not over-powering.
Same with the taste. The hops assert themselves but do not overwhelm the other flavors. The same evergreen-floral hop presence with malt taking a supporting role. The alcohol makes itself known without being pushy.
Medium bodied, medium effervescence. smoother than many IPAs, and less drying than many, as well, though both characteristics are still well represented. For a non-IPA person, I really like this brew. Need to try the Imp. IPA next, I reckon.

Serving type: on-tap
