Look is gold amber with a generous head that's creamy colored and this does a good lace.
Aromas feature a herb resin whole cone hop scent and some citrus. Good and rather inviting
Flavors are not quite the hop array of it's big brothers,Hop Wallop and Yakima Twilight . This has a soft caramel supporting a hop side that has some citrus-grapefruit,a sort of english oak,and a bit of pine resin. Finishes rather dry with a lingering multi-hop aftertaste. There is less of that " dank buds" to this hop profile than in Yakima Twilight,though there's a resinous pine thing.
Mouth...The light toast caramel malts can't subdue the hop devil,but we don't ask for that. Instead they provide a sense of substance so the zingy hop show never gets watery. Just right carbonation and a fine lingering finish make for a brew that's drinkable in general and a joy on a hot day. Has just enough balance and restraint to keep a whole beer nature.
