Fairly pale golden color, good clarity but with some hop? bit floaters. Pours a largish white head that is creamy and long lasting.

Big hop nose, a solventy pine and a little pineapple.

Malty sweetness up front melds nicely with some citrus hop flavors. Surprisingly easy drinking. Tons of hop flavor, some of it more earthy than the aroma indicates, but no sharp or harsh hop bitterness. Does dry and become more bitter in the finish, but in the grand sense is nicely balanced throughout.

Med-full body, moderate carbonation. No astringency, but some style appropriate warming in the finish.

I have a weakness for smooth big beers, and this is a nice example. Not overly sweet or harshly bitter as some beers in this style can be.

Still trying this in hopes that it will be as good as the first time I've had it. Not happening in the last 5 tastings.
