Iced-tea colored pour with an off white head. Plenty of fuzzy bubbles. More hops in the nose than expected. Definitely more floral than citrus/pine (nice for a change). Malt smells sweet w/o a lot of distinction other than a hint of Grape Nuts. This sample is the first where I detect an estery component that seems a little out of place. Can't call it a flaw though. Mouthfeel is on the thin side, and a bit to the beer's determent. A tad more body would be perfect. Still not bad. Finishes like not quite burnt toast.
